Synopses & Reviews
The master of international intrigue and explosive action introduces a new hero for a new era of warfare . . . against a new kind of threat.
Get ready to meet ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore.
For years, ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America's enemies at every turn.
When Moore arrives at a rendezvous to take charge of a high-ranking Taliban captive, the meeting takes a horrific turn that neither Moore nor any of his bosses saw coming. Barely surviving, he tries to bring to safety a Pakistani colonel with information about the debacle, only to have that mission fall prey to forces more powerful and cunning than any he has faced before. Undaunted, and with failure not an option, Moore continues his quest for the truth, leaving many dead in his wake-killed by those for whom secrecy is the ultimate weapon.
In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.-Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.
Tom Clancy, the master of international intrigue and explosive action, introduces a new hero for a new era of warfare-against a new kind of threat.
