al-Qaeda is going to rain havoc on America. What are they going to do? And to what targets and when? Can anyone unravel this mystery in time?

The inexplicable suicide of a female passenger at JFK International Airport and a secret list discovered by authorities in Pakistan set the stage for a diabolical and deadly al-Qaeda plot involving simultaneous and catastrophic acts of terrorism across the United States. In a race against time, the only question is whether Terrorism Task Force Leader, Wayne Kirby, and his Rambo-like girlfriend, Rennie Jordon, will live long enough to unravel the details, find the terrorists and put a stop to their deadly jihad.

FBI Special Agent Wayne Kelly is hurriedly dispatched to Dallas when a high-ranking NSA employee is assassinated. Immediately after his arrival the body count starts climbing and Wayne has to request additional agents to handle all the investigations that might involve national security. Everyone is surprised when a reporter determines that one of the bodies is the president’s granddaughter that was born to an estranged daughter that died in an automobile accident years ago. Then not only does the FBI unknowingly tell the terrorists that the president is secretly coming to town but exactly where he will be staying. In amongst all this the CIA alerts the secret NSA lab in Dallas that al-Qaeda sleeper agents have been infiltrating into US cities for over a year. The secret lab along with Special Agent Kelly has limited time to unravel the terrorist threat and the only clue is a list of twenty cities found in a bombed out al-Qaeda training camp; is it a clue or a red herring? This is a fast-moving thriller with surprises at every turn, so don’t start reading with anything on the stove. Binkley keeps you anxious to see what is going to happen next as the story is parsed in such a way that there is no lull from start to finish. It reminds me of a merry-go-round where things jump on and off as it keeps spinning at varying speeds. I didn’t really believe the blurbs on the back of the book that this terrorism plot could happen here in the US, but after reading the book I am concerned that it could indeed happen here. The book seemed to be well researched so maybe some of the right people in our government are on notice!

  Countdown to Terror , 12/05/2008
Reviewer: Jaycee
al-Qaeda Strikes Again is a thriller that opens with a code red security alert at JFK International Airport. A woman is chased down a concourse and disappears into a restroom. In the mountains of Pakistan, a CIA agent finds a list of 20 U.S. cities in the rubble of a destroyed al-Qaeda training camp. The National Security Agency (NSA) passes the list to its top-secret super computer center, MPSIS, in Dallas, Texas, where analysts begin a feverish race to interpret what the list means. FBI and NSA agents leap into action. Meanwhile, terrorist cells across the country wait for the word "go." Author Bill Binkley has written a hugely ambitious first thriller, a 340-page novel featuring not only the main al-Qaeda terrorist plot, but also murder, espionage, sexual liaisons, terrorists' personal vendettas, terminal illness, political issues involving torture, and an assassination plot against the U.S. President. Despite all this turmoil, two young heroes find the time to fall in love. That the author manages all these plot threads across several different locations is a feat in itself. Binkley has an ear for dialogue and no short-comings in the imagination department. This is action movie material. Ingenious booby traps! Mysterious disappearances! Political intrigue and sexual shenanigans! No doubt we haven't seen the last of Terrorism Task Force leader/FBI agent Wayne Kelly and MPSIS analyst/FBI special agent Rennie Jordon.

  Binkley Strikes Back , 01/02/2009
Reviewer: R. E. Conary
Will terrorists strike the U.S. again? Experts say yes. Will we stop them? Maybe. Bill Binkley's debut thriller, "al-Queda Strikes Again," challenges America's top analysts and FBI agents to solve that problem. Failure is not an option. "al-Qaeda Strikes Again" reminds me a lot of Frederick Forsyth's first novel, "The Day of the Jackal" (one of my all-time favorites). Forsyth's police Inspector Claude Lebel and the "old boys' network" of foreign intelligence and police contacts must stop the assassination of French president, Charles de Gaulle, without knowing who, when, where or how. In Binkley's book, it's the Jackal times twenty. Twenty U.S. cities are targeted for catastrophe that will make 9/11 pale in comparison and all U.S. intelligence has is the list of cities. It will take everything that crack analyst Rennie Jordon and Special Agent Wayne Kelly and their teams can figure out and do to stop the devastation from happening. The book has flaws, but these never stop "al-Qaeda Stikes Again" from beating a rhythmic tattoo (like the theme from "Jaws") toward an exciting, page-flipping, it-could-happen climax.
