See all 2 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions
From what begins as the simple murder of a sex worker, Inspector Kate Dawson follows the clues to human trafficking and ultimately the Asian sex trade. Then, as the date of the G-20 Summit in San Francisco draws closer, Dawson struggles to connect the lives of five Asian women, who have presumably disappeared in Chinatown, with that of a mad North Korean General’s master plan of bringing about economic chaos in the West and his nuclear submarine playing hide-and-go-seek with fishermen in the Bay. As the world’s leaders and economists converge on the annual summit, Dawson must prevent terror from breaking out at the G-20.
Dr. John L. Flynn is an author, psychologist, and college dean. Born in Chicago, Illinois. He earned a Bachelor's and Master's Degree from the University of South Florida and a PhD from Southern California University. He is a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, and has been a regular contributor and columnist to dozens of science fiction magazines. In 1997, John switched gears from writing and literature to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. His study, "The Etiology of Sexual Addiction: Childhood Trauma as a Primary Determinant," has broken new ground in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual addiction. In 1977, he received the M. Carolyn Parker award for outstanding journalism for his freelance work on several Florida daily newspapers. He sold his first book, Future Threads, in 1985, and has subsequently had twelve other books published, including Cinematic Vampires: The Living Dead on Film, The Films of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dissecting Aliens, Visions in Light and Shadow, War of the Worlds: From Wells to Spielberg, 75 Years of Universal Monsters, 50 Years of Hammer Horror, 101 Superheroes of the Silver Screen, 2001: Beyond the Infinite, The Jovian Dilemma, Phantoms of the Opera: Behind the Mask, and Everything I Know About Life I Learned From James Bond and Future Prime: Top Ten Science Fiction Films (published by Library tales Publishing and co-authored with Bob Blackwood). There are planned sequels for both. He has also written the Introduction to Signet's new edition of Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera, and the Afterword to Signet's new printing of The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells.

I have yet to read a John L. Flynn book I did not fall in love with. The characters, plot, settings, and reality-based storylines are all exemplary. Terror at G-20 is awesome! From page one, whether you have read the prior three in the series or not, grabs you by the collar and pulls you through the rabbit hole to San Francisco and in the middle of a human trafficking auction. It is incomprehensible to think this happens every day. Girls and boys are kidnapped right off the street and never heard from again; shipped over to countries (or kept here in the U.S.) where they are abused, mutilated, and, eventually when they are no longer tolerable, murdered. Kate Dawson digs in her heels and never lets the case slip away, even when it involves international diplomacy with North Korea and possible global human annihilation. All is plausible and possible. Chemical weapons don’t have to ride on a rocket, they can come on one of the millions of container ships that come to port here or inside humans (just like drug smuggling, never detected). I have read all the books in the Kate Dawson series now — Intimate Bondage, Architects of Armageddon, Murder on Air Force One, and Terror at G-20 — and every single one is different and dang good. I highly recommend getting all four! They are all stand-alone novels, but to read them in order is even better. Top notch!
