A terrorist assault. A killer at the unfastened. And a last, determined challenge . . .

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