The thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times- bestselling series.
There's an uneasy and unholy alliance building across the Caribbean. Few in the U.S. government want to believe that a Third World country and its chest-thumping leader could pose a credible threat-but then why are the Chinese helping to train its special forces? Why are the Russians helping to build a nuclear power plant?
Charley Castillo and his men go in to investigate, but they have no idea what they have just gotten themselves into. By the time they finish connecting the dots, they will be on the hit lists of the Kremlin, the Cubans, the Venezuelans, and the drug cartels-and totally out on their own. Whatever happens next, they'll have to do it by themselves.

William E. Butterworth IV has worked closely with his father, W.E.B. Griffin, for a decade, and is the coauthor of seven previous books with him, most recently The Vigilantes and The Outlaws.From Booklist:
In Mexico, unknown assailants posing as Mexican authorities attack a U.S. embassy vehicle, killing all of the passengers except one, whom they take with them, holding him hostage until the American government arranges for a drug lord to be sprung from federal prison in the States. Charley Castillo, the retired U.S. army colonel and Secret Service agent attached to the president—although his relationship with the new Oval Office occupant is decidedly more contentious than with the previous president—learns about the kidnapping and immediately suspects that it could have been deliberately staged to get his attention. Could the abduction be part of a plot by Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin to capture and erase Charley once and for all? And, if it is, can Charley count on any of his former government colleagues to help him out? The father-and-son writing team of Griffin and Butterworth keeps the Castillo series interesting by throwing their hero into new situations, e.g., taking him from being a highly respected government agent to something approaching a full-on outlaw, operating in an environment in which key players in the government would like nothing more than to see him eliminated permanently. Another solid entry in an always-popular series. --David Pitt
