Brendan Thorne, ex-Ranger in Panama, ex-sniper for a CIA front in Colombia, has foresworn violence and is living in Kenya when FBI agent Terrill Hatfield arranges for Thorne's deportation back to the United States. In a top-secret meeting, Thorne is told that Halden Corwin, legendary Vietnam sniper and mercenary, has vowed to assassinate the recently elected president of the United States. The government's computers have picked Thorne as the most likely person to find Corwin and stop him. Thorne won't have to kill anyone; Hatfield's crack FBI team will take care of that. But when the plan doesn't go as described, Thorne discovers he can't trust anyone or anything he's been told. Drawn into a web of lies, ambitions, and double-crosses, Thorne must run for his life and, ultimately, stand and fight.
