A terrorist assault. A killer at the free. And a last, determined venture . . .

Former SAS Captain, Tom Jackson, is a guy with not anything to lose. A veteran of the main risky missions the Regiment may throw at him, his existence used to be torn aside the day a terrorist assault killed his relations. Now he grieves in obscurity, the area of war not anything yet a far off memory.

However, humans better up the chain of command produce other plans for Jackson. they're in a large number in their personal making, and make him a suggestion he can’t refuse — a proposal that may take him again into the brutal theatre of battle. There’s a catastrophe ready to occur, which just one individual will help hinder, and that individual is being held through the Taliban insurgency within the depths of a harsh Afghanistan wintry weather.

As Tom reluctantly prepares for this ultimate undertaking, he does so within the wisdom that it'll cease a devastating terrorist assault — in addition to fulfill an ulterior rationale of his personal. yet as occasions start to spread, Tom suspects that somebody is enjoying a video game with him; that no-one should be relied on; and that during the murky global of foreign terrorism, issues are seldom what they appear . . .
