Details abound in this fast-paced novel -- how to avoid a drone, how to convert a car into your own personal safety deposit box -- but not at the expense of action, of which there is plenty. The complex story revolves around a group of American black ops agents led by John Hayes, who has been accused of committing war crimes, and the hunt to find him and his team before they launch an attack on U.S. soil. Caught in the middle is his former friend, Tom Byrne, who's been recruited by the U.S. government to find Hayes, but who struggles with his loyalties and is unsure whom to trust. "Hair-raising," says Booklist of a novel that is "even more chilling for its air of plausibility."
