Back Cover Summary: A tough, veteran Army CID Agent, Thomas Fox, is recruited into the Army’s new Counter Terrorism Task Force to take on the growing threat of domestic terrorism and extremists in the ranks of the U.S. Military. But it is not long before a rogue U.S. Senator controlling the Task Force decides to take it in a new direction. He sends Fox to Baghdad to ensure a radical Islamic Cleric does not steal the upcoming elections in Iraq. After a failed assassination attempt on the U.S. Secretary of Defense by this cleric, the leaders of the Task Force give Fox the green light to take him out. But when something goes wrong, someone has to take the fall. Fox returns home to finds himself in the middle of a cover-up at the highest levels of the government. When going along with their plan doesn’t work, Fox decides to hit the streets to take down the Task Force and the corrupt politicians running it. Agent Fox is thrust into a world of revenge, lies and betrayal. He must risk everything to clear his name and protect the ones he loves.
In this action packed thriller, Agent Fox discovers that sometimes, politics can be just as dangerous as the streets of Baghdad.
