Literature: David Isaaks Shock And Awe
Shock And Awe (not to be confused with the trope, which completely doesn't apply) is a technothriller novel by David Isaak.

Carla Smukowski has seen better days. A former member of a US Army special forces Amazon Brigade, her career was ended when she lashed out at Arabs celebrating 9/11, in which her brother died. Now bumming through life, never having forgiven nor forgotten, she cautiously accepts when mysterious billionaire Rex Atwater offers her the resources to lend a hand to The War on Terror.

Boyce Hammond is a FBI Agent. He has been undercover with a Right Wing Militia so long he is not sure where his loyalties lie. His path crosses with Carla's when Rex dragoons his group for the next stage of his plan - hijack a transport carrying fissile material to build a dirty bomb and use it against Mecca.

As they work to build the militia into something resembling a coherent squad that can carry out the operation, Carla starts to have doubts, while Rex seems to not have been entirely on the level.
