Synopsis: A black market Russian tactical nuke. Religious extremists who must conquer at any cost. An alienated teenager with a death wish. An Israeli city. These ingredients compose a terrifying recipe for U.S. intelligence. How can suicidal killer Bassam Amin be stopped before the Israeli's take action...without assistance from the U.S. military; without fracturing the Coalition Against Terror; and without triggering global jihad? All hopes are pinned on retired commando "Rocco" Cavarra and twelve other alpha male SpecOps veterans who have never worked together. They must plow through an African civil war; infiltrate a heavily defended desert fortress; wrestle the WMD away from Amin and his fellow sociopaths while surrounded and outnumbered ten-to-one; then waltz out of harm's way without tipping off the local warlords or genocidal government. Hooyah! But how should Rocco's Retreads handle the hard-charging Mossad agents Israel shot into the hornet's nest to help the mission along-or was it to frag Cavarra and take over the operation themselves? Only a maniac would volunteer for such a mission. Only a monster would use an A-bomb for terror. Both maniacs and monsters are on a collision course that could blow the whole world to hell and gone.
From the Author:
My intention was to write an old-fashioned commando tale, but with a degree of accuracy and verisimilitude I found lacking in all the military thrillers I could find at the time. Authors had some interesting ideas, but it was too obvious to me most of them had never spent a day in uniform, much less the combat arms and certainly not in elite units.
Action adventure and realism blended together is a tall order, because war is 90% boredom punctuated by flashes of stark terror, stupid mistakes and confusion. Same in elite units, though there's a higher percentage of good planning, capable execution and decisive adjustments on the fly.
This is a tale of exceptional men.
