Blake's counterpart in England, General Ferguson, informed the White House about the assassination attempt. Now the general, Sean Dillion and Hannah Bernstein have to trace the assassin's movements back to the source which turns out to be a mosque run by a man who is recruiting British Muslims and sending them to terrorist training camps in the middle east. Working behind the scenes is a Russian billionaire and his chief security officer who want to sow dissension in the west and is funding the terrorists. Ferguson's unit gets in their way one too many times of the Russian and becomes a target for these power hungry megalomaniacs.

Jack Higgins has written a novel that shows how Britain is fighting the war on terror. Sean Dillon, a stone cold killer who was an enforcer for the IRA before being recruited by the General is the protagonist of this book as he seeks justice for the innocents who get caught in the cross-fire.
