In this tale of high drama and nonstop action from perennial best-selling author Stephen Coonts, Al Qaeda links up with a renegade Mafia chieftain to threaten America with an unimaginable scenario of terror.
In the finale of Coonts' previous novel, The Traitor, the ruthless and brilliant Al Qaeda leader who nearly succeeded in blowing up a meeting of the Group of 7 in Paris slipped the noose and escaped. But Abu Qasim has another trick up his sleeve: he has a plan to hire a well connected Mafia capo to destroy the electric substations that service New York, plunging the city back into the early 19th century. The price? One billion American dollars is hard to turn down.
The CIA soon learns that something is up, and a worried president sends his best - Jake Grafton and his secret weapon, Tommy Carmellini. Tommy is soon up to his eyes in beautiful women as he tries to piece the deadly puzzle together. With bombs ticking and bullets flying, Tommy meets an old flame, beautiful Russian agent Anna Modin. This time she's got a gun. And a list.
