Standing on a windy bluff on the northern border of Israel, televangelist Matthew Vaughn is broadcasting to an audience of millions when he is kidnapped by guerillas from a mysterious terrorist cell. Veteran CIA operative Grant Stearns is thrown into the hunt for the captive preacher, a chase that leads from the deserts of Syria to a remote coastal resort in Albania. But Stearns’ biggest challenge is not only to rescue Vaughn, but to battle the forces in Washington and the Middle East – a renegade Homeland Security Secretary in league with an ambitious Israeli Defense Minister – who want to exploit the kidnapping for their own political purposes, even if it means provoking a full-scale war.
"Hilsman gets the political-thriller formula almost perfect..punchy chapters, a myriad of secretive characters, a dynamic hero, a canyon of exotic locales and verbal jousting that ultimately provides the fuel that keeps one reading."
