Under the cover of a moonless night, al-Qaida operatives made their way inside the infamous Camp Delta prison on the American base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Their goal was to free five prisoners, but they failed. The rescuers and prisoners, all former Iranian Navy submarine crewmen, were killed. Investigators discover that this mission was supposed to be the first step in unleashing a deadly act of terrorism - an operation code-named Allah's Scorpion. The CIA and Kirk McGarvey are called in, but first McGarvey must stop the destruction of the Panama Canal by a Venezuelan oil tanker rigged to explode in one of the locks. What seems at first to be an unrelated attack turns up the same cryptic code name. Allah's Scorpion may prove to be the ultimate strike against America, a grand finale to what began on 9/11. A pair of Russian nuclear missiles that were spirited into Libya just before the invasion of Iraq have turned up in transit to a undisclosed launch site in the Atlantic Ocean. Kirk McGarvey is the only man in position to stop them - the only man capable of knocking out Allah's Scorpion.
