Reviewer ---Critic RJ Fulscher praises 'bin Laden's Revenge' --
In the past 4+ years I have read over 200 books mostly NYT best sellers and/or top selling authors. Grogan’s action thriller, 'bin Laden's Revenge' rates in my top 5 of all the books I have read. There are 3 reasons. The first is central plot is current, credible, and exciting. The second is the sub plots stand alone and do not distract but compliment the central plot. The third, and most important, is no superfluous ramblings to fill pages. For example, a recent book I read by Baldacci, Zero Day, had over 200 pages of unnecessary story line that had nothing to do with the plot. Zero Day had pages upon pages of what the characters ate for breakfast lunch, and dinner. I found none of this in Grogan’s thriller. If you want a really great book, buy this one.
'bin Laden's Revenge' made available free to military servicemen. See website, spgrogan.com. Copies also available to reviewers and interested agents.
Press Release issued: denying that any part of 'bin Laden's Revenge' is anti-Islamic in regards to recent attacks on books and movies to that effect. In part, says Author Grogan, "bin Laden's Revenge is more anti-terrorist as a good ol' adventure thriller. Yes, in the end there is a comment on Islam but it is written actually in a positive light and will make a great forum for discussion between religious leaders."

BIN LADEN'S REVENGE-- beyond the grave, Osama bin Laden's Final Attack on the U.S. by S.P. Grogan
Plot: Recently seized documents reveal al-Qaida terrorist leader Osama bin Laden planned a 9/11 anniversary attack on American soil, using sleeper cells he established 10 years earlier.
This is the premise of S.P. Grogan's third novel, a political action thriller, BIN LADEN'S REVENGE
BIN LADEN'S REVENGE informs us it has since become public knowledge there was a third courier, who reported directly from bin Laden to the Supreme Council of al-Qaida and was there at the Abbottabad compound the night bin Laden is killed. The courier escapes to activate Crimson Scimitar, a plan designed to lay waste to much of Southwestern United States.
Who can stop Crimson Scimitar and defeat al-Qaida in America? It might be the FBI, CIA or the U.S. military. The heroes could even be the cast of an American reality TV show.
Stories and films with Navy SEALS are a popular venue, and this story is action packed and written as a docu-novel following a timeline in the hunt for bin Laden and the subsequent attempt to stop bin Laden's final attack on the U.S.
Sample chapters available on request.
