Brown, who followed up his debut blockbuster Flight of the Old Dog with a remarkable string of hits now plunges the new elite high-tech Whiplash unit into harm's way, as they race to thwart a terrifying plot to unleash nuclear terror and global chaos on the eve of historic reconciliation between the United StatesandIran.
