Publisher's Summary

An explosive, high-stakes thriller of espionage and counterterrorism by the Wall Street Journal bestselling authors of Tier One.

A shocking attack in Ankara leaves the US Ambassador to Turkey dead and his chief of staff, Amanda Allen, in the hands of brutal terrorists. But Allen is no ordinary diplomat. She’s undercover CIA. The DNI and the President turn to Ember, America’s premier black-ops task force, and its deadliest weapon, former Tier One Navy SEAL John Dempsey, for help. To find Allen, Ember gets embedded in the most dangerous battlefield on Earth: Syria. But when all communications are disabled by an attack in Turkey, Dempsey finds himself with no backup - a lone shadow warrior racing against time to rescue Allen from her captors before she reaches her breaking point.

What Dempsey doesn’t realize is that Allen is just a pawn in a much larger game. A new player has already been unleashed: a legendary mercenary who matches the American Operator in skill, tactical prowess, and a killer instinct for survival. Now there is far more at stake than a kidnapped CIA agent. Dempsey and his team better get this one right, because the balance of power for the entire Middle East hangs in the balance. And the new threat is far more dangerous than any Dempsey has encountered in his decades waging war against terrorism. Game on.

Incredibly good, the best pursuit scene written in a decade

Part 3 was unbelievably fire. I’ve never read or listened to such an intensely fast and well written continuous scene.

Reading this book through the lens of 2023 is very interesting. You could almost believe the story is non-fiction with how accurately it depicts Russian operations in regards to Turkey and NATO.

I’m so impressed at how the story has switched from relatively small-time Islamic terror to more wide scale geopolitical intrigue.

The writers are well informed on geopolitics, espionage and combat. There are many spy and military novels out there and none have the level of realism that this series has. Speaking of those two topics, this story has discovered the perfect balance between espionage and combat. In some places, stealthy information collection, disguise and infiltration are the name of the game. In others, fists, knives and guns are blazing in a style few writers can match.

The authors are at the top of their games and they seem to be bringing every scene to the peak quality. There are genuinely tearful moments and the level of investment in the characters is continuously climbing. I’m not even American, never even been to the US but it makes me proud to know the faces of the Western world’s greatest ally.
