In this explosive series from "New York Times" bestselling author Harold Coyle and noted military author Barrett Tillman, a new type of war is being fought by private paramilitary companies at the beck and call of the highest bidder. With its military and intelligence agencies spread thin, the United States constantly calls upon these organizations--and Strategic Solutions, Inc., is among the best. An SSI team, led by former Rear Admiral Michael Derringer, is in Chad on a relatively simple military-training mission. Their task soon turns into a high-stakes game of nuclear brinkmanship when they stumble across a plot to extract and smuggle yellowcake - the base fuel for nuclear weapons. Tracking the operation to a remote, supposedly abandoned mine in the desert, Derringer and the SSI task force launch an attack but are unable to halt the yellowcake shipment. With time running out, the SSI teams must locate a ship in international waters and retrieve its deadly cargo - by any means necessary.

Review quote

"Coyle is a master at high-tech suspense. He spins his story with such power that you're swept along to the climactic finish."--Clive Cussler "Action-filled revenge fantasy for desk-bound Terminators."--"Kirkus Reviews" on "Harold Coyle's Strategic Solutions: Pandora's Legion""The Tom Clancy of ground warfare."--W.E.B. Griffin "Coyle is best when he's depicting soldiers facing death . . . He knows soldiers, and he understands the brotherhood-of-arms mystique that transcends national boundaries."--"The New York Times""Nobody knows war like Harold Coyle, and nobody writes it better."--Stephen Coonts "Coyle has been dubbed the Tom Clancy of ground warfare, and it's easy to see why. He focuses on the grunts because no matter how fancy the weapons are, eventually the military has to send in men to take and hold territory."--"New York"" Post"
