AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'His war is over and former special forces captain Gerry Gallen is enjoying the relative peace of running a cattle ranch in Wyoming. But when he's asked to lead a team to Jordan to retrieve his war-time sergeant, he agrees.

'Landing in Amman, Gallen re-enters a world of Arab gangsters, American mercenaries and the constantly shifting loyalties of the CIA. And watching over his every step is the lethal presence of Hamas - a daily reminder that Gallen is working under the constant threat of death.

'Nothing about the gig is what it seems and as Gallen realises that his former boss has stolen $3 million dollars from some powerful locals, the spectre of Iraqi aggression rears its head. But why are neo-Baathists chasing Gallen? And what do they want with the cargo he is carrying?

'Hunted, beaten and trapped, Gerry Gallen is a man running two races... Can he break clear before lightning strikes?' (Publisher's blurb)
