The master of suspense returns, with a chilling novel of
modern terrorism and revenge.
For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it begins with a
routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will
be as bloody as any he has ever known.
The man he stops at Heathrow Airport is Caspar Rashid, born
and bred in England but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe
fiercely wedded to the old ways, as Rashid has just found
out to his pain. His thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has
been kidnapped by Rashid's own father and taken to Iraq to
be married to a man known as the Hammer of God, one of the
Middle East's most feared terrorists. Dillon has had his
own run-ins with that clan, and when the distraught man
begs Dillon for help, he sees a chance to settle some old
scores-but he has no idea of the terrible chain of events
he is about to unleash, nor of the implacable enemies he is
about to gain. Before his journey is done, many men will
die-and Dillon may be one of them.
