A gripping tale of terrorism, brutality, and personal conflict . . . Bio-terrorism, a stolen jet, prisoners . . . One miscalculation could put America and the Middle East on the verge of World War III
Donovan Nash has a secret he’ll do anything to keep. But he’s the prime suspect after someone steals a fifty million dollar executive jet, and FBI agent Veronica Montero put him squarely in the cross-hairs As she digs, she discovers Nash’s secret – a revelation that, if made public, would stun the world. Operating on her own agenda, Montero blackmails Nash into helping her hunt down a man she wants dead.
Powerless against the information Montero holds, Nash is forced into a situation far deadlier than either of them could ever have imagined. The man they are after isn’t the criminal they expect, he’s a terrorist with a plan to use the stolen jet to carry out an unthinkable and devastating act that could plunge America into the most heinous conflict since World War II.
When Nash and Montero are taken prisoner aboard the stolen jet, they will have only one opportunity to execute a daring midair attempt to stop the attack. Success could cost them their own lives, but failure could cost millions of innocent lives.

Philip Donlay not only knows his territory—powerful aircraft and the men who fly them—he knows how to tell a gripper of a tale. Damn, this guy is good.” —William Kent Kreuger, New York Times best-selling author
