Multnomah Books Meltdown, Task Force Valor Series #3

The global war on terror has reached catastrophic proportions, leading the U.S. Special Operations EOD team-Task Force Valor-to Chernobyl, where ghosts of past disasters are nothing compared to the nuclear nightmare about to unfold.

With CIA Agent Mary "Phoenix" Walker heading her first Special Ops mission and Master Sergeant Bobby Sweeney fighting demons on and off the battlefield, Task Force Valor races to stop a terrorist threat in the Ukraine before Europe is turned into a radioactive wasteland.

But when the terror reaches American shores, the team is powerless to help until they can save themselves. And when they finally track down the source of the chaos, what they find is worse than anything they could have imagined.

Had never heard of Chuck Holton. Bought the three-book series to read on vacation. The reading experience was wonderful. Holton did not simply put a Christian challenge or two in the mix...he wove personalities and action packed adventure with Christian and non-Christian men and women working together. I enjoyed all three books...and yes, Meltdown was an excellent conclusion to the entire series. Certainly look forward to Holton's next books.

Nonstop action from start to finish! My husband and I have loved this series, and sure hope it's not finished.

a good story and a nail-biter again. I enjoy Chuck's ability to have God involved in peoples' realities in a plausible, respectful way.

This third book I didn't read. Just like the two previous ones, I gobbled it up, devoured it, whatever. Wow!The other reviewer called the ending "frightening", I would say all three books are frightening in the entire plots, not just the ending. Though finding an honorable character go off the rails like ...did (Ain't telling!)hightens that factor. This whole series is much too close to reality and I am glad to have a Sure Hope through Christ. Or my heart and mind would already be in the setting of Revelation. Chernobyl has scared me since it happened and continues to do so to this day. I only hope that the book's scenes are just that: A writer's story. I also hope that Mr. Holton can write more books, and soon, even if not necessarily in the Valor series.My reason for not giving this the whole five stars is some language concern. I despise euphemistic cussing (heck, darn, etc.) mainly because the Bible condemns it.A super wordsmith like Mr. Holton can imply it for the non-Christian book character and make the reader think of whatever the reader's own brain supplies.

Took the author a year to write this book, and I had it read within hours of receiving it. Hope that he will write other action novels in the future.The story didn't end up the way I thought it would but the action continues through the book. Worth the read!

Meltdown by Chuck Holton is the third book in the Task Force Valor series. CIA Agent Mary Walker is heading up her first Spec Ops mission with team members Bobby Sweeney, John Cooper, and Rip Rubio in the Ukraine in the hopes of finding the source of a deadly weapon. While they are undercover, all across America, strikes are made using just that weapon bring the economy and communication to a halt and panicking the entire nation. This was my first read of the Task Force Valor series, but I'm sure it won't be my last! With the action of a James Bond movie and the exciting military story of NCIS, I couldn't put this book down! Holton takes care to keep Christian themes to a minimum, making sure that readers don't feel preached to. There are several plot threads, and he juggles them all with ease, making each character come to life, even those only on the canvas for a few paragraphs. The ending is a terrific twist with a frightening message. A special bonus at the end of the book is Holton's Easter Eggs which will give the reader a whole new appreciation for the series.
