Description

When the secretary of Defense is assassinated, Michael Patrick Santini, a former senator and Vietnam POW, is pulled from his Wall Street firm back to Washington to lead the Pentagon. Once there, he discovers that the United States is under attack by a silent, sinister force, someone determined to alienate our allies and undermine our position as a global superpower. Angry militia men? Fanatical al Qaeda? Russian organized-crime gangs? No one knows. But Santini must uncover and expose this force before more acts of deceit and destruction draw the United States into a war where millions will die. When he becomes the target of a murderous Chechen, he is saved by the beautiful, mysterious Elena, a member of Mossad's elite assassination team. But what is her agenda? For whom is she really working? What price will he have to pay Elena for saving his life? America is but hours away from going to war with the wrong enemy. Rejecting a direct order from the president of the United States, Santini across the globe in a desperate attempt to prevent a man from his past from starting a global war.
