Former Army Captain Alton Blackwell never thought he'd return to Afghanistan.
Now he has no choice.
While on their honeymoon, cryptologist Alton Blackwell and FBI Agent Mallory Wilson receive a desperate plea for help. Resourceful Afghani teenager Mastana Meer, once instrumental in rescuing a mutual friend from Afghanistan terrorists, finds herself coerced into a nefarious plot by her Al-Qaeda uncle.
Having escaped the clutches of her terrorist uncle, the teen is days away from leaving Kabul for a better life when Alton and Mallory lose all contact with her.
As the former soldiers race to Afghanistan to search for Mastana, they battle Al-Qaeda terrorists, a resurgent cult of evil, and a web of political intrigue in which the label of friend and foe is not easily assigned. The duo must summon all their investigatory powers and combat skills to track down and rescue their young friend before her captors’ evil design can be set in motion.
“[U]nlike regular series where the original is the best, damned if this one isn't the best of them all so far. The story was amazing, I love a good cross global chase and cult action, a really well thought out plot and nicely woven human elements into a lot of action…I loved it. Really found it a rompingly great holiday devouring read.” Sarah R.
“I really, really enjoyed this story — the suspense and the pace are great; it actually reads very quickly because you feel you have to find out what happens next.” Elaine R.
