A left-leaning appeal court judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan’s northwest frontier mountain range. But disaster overtakes them and the four men vanish, to rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men with hatred in their hearts, with hatred for the United States and Great Britain, and they are sworn to hit back at the USA, which imprisoned so many of their high command.
A fateful communication from the mountains of the Afghan side of the border is intercepted by Britain’s secret surveillance station on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Al-Qaeda is almost certainly planning a new hit on the US mainland. The CIA is at its wits end, all their fears coming home to roost.
They know there is only one man who can stop them retired Navy SEAL Lt. Commander Mack Bedford and he is called in to assist on one of the most highly classified missions ever launched from CIA headquarters. Bedford names his price, and once more, the nobility of the man is spun into a breathtakingly fast action novel.

Patrick Robinson is the coauthor of the recent New York Times #1 nonfiction bestseller Lone Survivor. He is also the author of seven international bestselling suspense thrillers, including Diamondhead, To the Death, Nimitz Class, and Hunter Killer, as well as several nonfiction bestsellers. He lives in Ireland and spends his summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.From Booklist:
Guantanamo Bay has housed many suspected terrorists, and in Robinson's latest technothriller, four of the deadliest are released back into society. Having the U.S. government and the Supreme Court to thank for their freedom, the four men promptly go into hiding and plot their next attack. Knowing the former prisoners are dangerous, the CIA hires retired Navy SEAL Mack Bedford, hero of Robinson's novel Diamondhead (2009), to assassinate them before they can kill innocent people. Bedford needs to succeed not only to save countless lives but also to recover the respect he lost on a prior mission. Robinson tries to enter Vince Flynn territory here, but his story line moves at a snail's pace and offers no surprises at all. The result reads more like a newspaper story than a thriller. Still, Robinson has a devoted following, and they will be willing to stick with him, even on a subpar outing. --Jeff Ayers
