Judgment at Alcatraz: A Danya Biton Novel (Paperback)
"Judgement at Alcatraz is a powerhouse thriller with an undercurrent of layered social commentary." —John M. Murray, Foreword Reviews
Fans of Jon Land's Caitlin Strong series and of James Rollin's Seichan will identify with and devour the Danya Biton series.
Capitalizing on a peaceful protest for Native American rights, a small, extremist militia swiftly seizes Alcatraz Island and holds more than 200 people hostage. Their demand: return all lands taken from Indigenous Peoples through broken treaties, or an armada of drones will render the San Francisco Bay Area a glowing ruin, uninhabitable for decades.
Former Mossad assassin Danya Biton and her friend Toby Riddle are thrown headlong into the conflict. As the authorities debate the cost of acquiescing to the demands versus the loss of civilian lives, Danya—on the run from agencies on both sides of the Atlantic—offers the only hope for rescuing the hostages and preventing an unprecedented disaster... but she may have to sacrifice herself to save the others.
