Rat Island explores an attempt by three, wily, well-funded terrorists to infiltrate New York City and detonate an explosive device at ground zero on 9/11. After buying a yacht in Venice, they proceed up and down the Adriatic raising money for their task and eventually sail to City Island, New York.

Meanwhile, a disgruntled Russian atomic scientist buys deadly Polonium 210 to be injected into four missiles, which are then cleverly placed on a freighter in the port of Gdansk. It then sails to New York City and meets up with the yacht. Through devious means, the terrorists are able to place these missiles on a vehicle and into a tunnel under the Hudson River.

The 'good' people who are trying to thwart this plot include three former Seals, one of whom is a vessel examiner with the Coast Guard Aux. and a beautiful undercover Interpol agent aboard the yacht.

Scenes shift from Venice, to an area in Poland where Polonium has been buried, to a secret Laboratory where the bombs are assembled, and finally to City Island, New York. The bombs are secreted in an abandoned hospital on a small island, Rat Island, until they are transported to Ground Zero.

The major challenge for the Seals once they discovered that missiles were aboard the yacht was to find out where they were hidden and ultimately where and how the bombs were going to be exploded.

The climax occurs in a tunnel filled with cars. Will the Seals be able to thwart this terrorist attack?

About the Author

**I was **irresistibly thinking "I hope there's a movie version". Set in New York City and in places around the globe, it's a gripping and down to earth story with great details of the boroughs and waterways of NYC, as well as the minds of people and terrorists alike, by Christine Yost.

When I read this novel I was literally blown away. The government tells us we are protected by homeland security, but this scenario is doable and believable. The author has an engaging crisp easy to read style, with vivid descriptions of how the terrorist manage to bypass every type of expensive security. Avid Reader.

This was a good story and a fast read. The author doesn't waste any time letting you know exactly what's going to take place and who is going to do it and from that point I was hooked. The characters were all engaging and fit well into the roles they play. Everything was very realistic, even the setting was spot on. I felt like I was watching a movie rather than reading a book. I wish the book had been a bit longer but that 's my only complaint. Overall, I would recommend this one if you have an interest in some good fiction and the 9/11 tragedy. P Benton rated it 5 of 5 stars.
