Whatever happened to Iraq's weapons of mass destruction? In this thriller ripped from tomorrow's headlines, a divided America has overcommitted its armed forces to foreign lands-and has a ruthless enemy bent on crushing its soul.
Matt Garrett, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative, is recovering from the death of his brother and his own wounds received during combat in the global war on terror. The Vice President sends him to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to meet with special operations forces to discuss missing Predator Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, only to have his air force jet commandeered by an enemy combatant.
Held captive by a terrorist mastermind and former Iraqi general with a startling link to his brother, Garrett struggles for survival. His successful escape leads him to the unnerving discovery that the terrorists have kidnapped the world's expert on nanotechnology-and to new questions about his brother's death. The enemy unleashes a series of powerful attacks across the country, cutting at the very fabric of the nation, while Garrett uncovers a conspiracy dating back to the first Gulf War.
Has the rogue threat targeting the United States marshaled the capability to deal a devastating blow to the country using weapons of mass destruction?
