Ruthless al Qaeda leader Abu Qasim has escaped from the grasp of the Americans and is plotting his next move. International commanders aim to destroy Qasim and his inner circle before he can strike again. But after the mysterious death of a high-ranking official, it soon becomes clear that there's a leak within the ranks of the Westerners…and that Qasim has turned the tables on his rivals. Now he's the one  targeting them—and his aim is to kill.

Admiral Jake Grafton dispatches special agent Tommy Carmellini to infiltrate the terrorist plot. He tracks the gorgeous and seductive Marisa Petrou, a Frenchwoman who may be Qasim's daughter and who may or may not wish him dead.

Who is behind the assassinations of the wealthy and powerful Western vigilante team? Will Qasim slip the noose once again? As the stakes grow higher, and top brass face greater risk than ever before, it's up to Carmellini to put a stop to a master of terror—before he unleashes even more death across the globe.
