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

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

However, humans larger up the chain of command produce other plans for Jackson. they're in a multitude 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 struggle. There’s a catastrophe ready to occur, which just one individual can assist hinder, and that individual is being held by means of the Taliban insurgency within the depths of a harsh Afghanistan iciness.

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 intent 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 depended on; and that during the murky global of overseas terrorism, issues are seldom what they appear . . .
