For off the fog-shrouded coast of Washington State, a staggering attack will flood the Northwest with American refugees and force the bravest and the best of U.S. Special Forces under the toughest of the tough, General Douglas Freeman, into a pitched, desperate battle to find a shadow enemy - before he strikes the next terrifying blow against the United States.

Three terrorist missiles have struck three jetliners filled with innocent people. America knows this shock all too well. But unlike 9/11, the nation is already on a war footing. The White House and Pentagon are primed. All they need now is a target and someone bold --- and expendable --- enough to strike it.

That someone is retired Gen. Douglas Freeman, the infamous warrior who has proved his courage, made his enemies, and built his legend from body-strewn battlegrounds to the snake pits of Washington. Using a team of "retired" Special Forces operatives and a top-secret, still-unproven stealth attack craft, Freeman sets off to obliterate a weapons stockpile in North Korea. Some desktop warriors expect Freeman to fail --- especially when an unexpected foe meets his team on the Sea of Japan. But Freeman won't turn back, even as his plan explodes in his face and the Pacific Rim roils over --- because this old soldier can taste his ultimate reward...

"The moment might very quickly come for us to use a weapon with which we ourselves could not be attacked." Adolph Hitler, Danzig, 1939.

In June 1944, the moment had come. The Allied pincers were closing in. Hitler had already ordered his jet fighters and his V-1 and V-2 rockets into action. Now it was time for the Fuhrer to use the most secret weapon of all. A bilingual American agent raised on the Canadian/U.S. border is parachuted deep into France to discover what the new secret weapon is. It is not the atomic bomb, but something which many Allied experts predict will be far worse.

Based on little-known true events of World War II, Forbidden Zone is a tense, page-turning thriller of espionage, sabotage, and betrayal.

It is 1942 and Japan owns the Pacific. The speed with which the Japanese have captured vast territories in a few months makes the Nazi Blitzkrieg look plodding by comparison. Hundreds of thousands are taken prisoner as Americans in the Philippines and the British in Singapore are forced to surrender, and President Roosevelt orders MacArthur to escape from the Philippines to Australia, from where he can launch a counteroffensive---hence MacArthur's famous promise "I shall return." Japanese War Minister Tojo orders that MacArthur be assassinated. MACARTHUR MUST DIE tells the story of an ingenious assassination plot involving a naval weapon which the Allies did not possess and which was twenty years before its time.

"A high-noon shootout in downtown Brisbane, which produces a denouement straight out of Higgins's The Eagle Has Landed. As a native of his narrative's Australian setting Slater is also able to offer flashes of local colour."
-Kirkus Reviews

"A most satisfying what-if thriller...The plot [is] a full-speed-ahead page-turner....Flashy, fast fun."
-New York Daily News

"Wonderful; one of the great suspense stories of World War II."
-Clive Cussler

"Searing suspense...[A] rousing, splendidly told adventure."
-Los Angeles Times

"Taughtly written, this novel is loaded with scenes that will have you grasping the book so tightly your knuckles will turn white....The final scene is a climactic hair-raising thriller."
-West Coast Review of Books
