Tomorrow in an uncertain world . . . The free nations of the Earth wake up to devastating news. Islamic Jihadists have struck at multiple targets in Saudi Arabia, nearly wiping out the entire royal family while crippling the kingdom's oil producing machinery. In a terrible instant, everything has changed?as devastating inflation rocks the world's financial markets. The normal rules no longer apply. An "Assassination Bill" has been introduced in a closed session of Congress. General Peter Newman has been granted the authority to recruit and train up to 100 specialists for one extreme but necessary purpose: the brutal and permanent elimination of terrorists. It is a task that will take Newman and his team into the heart of the beast to derail an Iranian plot to attack the U.S. And one misstep could bring nuclear destruction to America's greatest cities.
