Blown Coverage by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn

I was intrigued when I read the preview for Blown Coverage in the back of Monday Night Jihad. It made me think it was about the four main characters hiding out for a while in Central America so their covers weren't blown. But then their covers are blown by a series of gunshots aimed at them.
After this scene, which was the preview in the back of Monday Night Jihad, Jason discards that idea and moves on to another about Muslim sleeper cells being awakened throughout America to destroy certain targets. It goes on about this, giving different examples.
Then the main characters are launched into a seemingly endless chase around the world by an unknown enemy. The funny thing is, the book ends while they are still on the run.
The pluses to this book is that Jason didn't progress any further with the romantic subplot introduced in the first book. Instead, he came up with a counter romantic subplot. Neither is ever resolved.
Though the book seems to be continued, I don't think Jason has any plans to continue it and he shouldn't. If he doesn't have anymore good ideas, he should stop. If he does, he should move on from this series.
1.5 stars
