Duration: 10 hours 37 minutes
A small nation that bolsters the terrorist cause is flexing its military muscle in a far corner of the world. On a mission to the now-volatile Mediterranean, F/A-18 pilot Lieutenant Ed Stovic shoots down an Algerian MiG at the climax of a dramatic, high-stakes dogfight and becomes an overnight hero in the eyes of his countrymen-and the target of a zealot's revenge. Suddenly Stovic and his loved ones have been marked for death by an enraged avenger, a pawn of powerful Islamic extremists with devastating plans for America.
But there is another player in the shadows, unseen by the hunters and the hunted alike. A specialist who moves covertly through the most secret branches of the government, a lethal tool of an ambitious NSA Director who will stop at nothing to attain the power she covets. Kent "Rat" Rathman must now devise a brilliant counterstrike, to save a friend and his country.
"Huston's latest military-techno thriller. Introduces superhero Kent Rathman, aka Rat, a versatile Navy SEAL doing undercover spook work for the CIA and the National Security Council...[amid] car chases, shoot outs, jet plane dogfights, secret terrorist plots, and Washington, D.C., conspiracies."-Publishers Weekly
