WASHINGTON – Michael Savage may be best known as one of the top talk-show hosts in the country, but he’s also written numerous No. 1 New York Times bestsellers and is about to release his second novel.
“A Time for War,” which debuts Feb. 12, follows the highly acclaimed “Abuse of Power.”
In the riveting new episode in the Jack Hatfield series, a Chinook helicopter carrying a squad of Navy Seals suddenly plummets to earth in Afghanistan. A car driven by FBI agents tailing a suspicious vehicle is mysteriously rendered immobile in San Francisco. The body of a Chinese agent is found floating miles from the Golden Gate Bridge after being fed to sharks. The U.S. is under secret attack – and only Hatfield, a popular television host hounded from his position by left-wing forces in the media for speaking the truth, suspects the danger of this lethal conspiracy.
With the help of Dover Griffith, an idealistic young woman staffer at the Office of Naval Intelligence, Hatfield pursues a trail leading to a billionaire American electronics entrepreneur who has sold out his own country with the help of officials at the highest level of the American government. As enemy operatives plan a two-pronged attack that will disarm the American military and release a deadly toxin killing hundreds of thousands of civilians, Hatfield and Dover race to locate this new Ground Zero and save an unsuspecting county.
In a review, Kirkus Media praised “A Time for War”:
“Jack Hatfield, the conservative talk show hero of Michael Savage’s 2011 Abuse of Power thriller, is back. His latest battle seems even more ominous than his last. With the help of a motley group of allies, he uncovers and disarms a U.S. billionaire’s plan to aid China in their secret war against America. Exciting reading for Savage’s like-minded audience. Savage, author of numerous nonfiction books, isn’t at all shy about using Hatfield to advance his self-image as a teller of truths liberals find too painful to digest. …Who says radio hosts are all talk? In Savage’s cool-tempered thriller, hero Jack Hatfield uncovers a Chinese plot and saves the nation.”
