He must locate WMD’s and assassinate the tyrant whose goal is US annihilation beginning with Washington, DC in one week. He struggles through the Sahara and becomes wedged between the Agency who believes he went rogue wanting him eliminated and the Tyrant who learns of his mission. 


"Fun, suspenseful and intriguing" Very interesting. The beginning was a bit of a surprise (though I completely understand why things happened the way they did now that I'm done.) Loved the dynamic characters and the variety of revelations. Lots of great character building and a fairly strong plot despite a few mishaps in editing. Most importantly, it kept me interested pretty much throughout. Definitely recommend it!~ Belladona "Never fails to keep you on your toes." Although I never read war related stories, this was definitely an interesting way to be exposed to that side of life. Jay's journey hits you with twists and turns and never fails to keep you on your toes. If you want to be emerced in world outside of your own, this is the book for you. I can't wait for the sequel, but for the time being i'll be on the look out for a book with a similar story line.~ Agnes Musee
