THE AMERICAN introduces Ryan Kealey, who is retired from the military and CIA when he receives the call he's been dreading. Jason March, a former U.S. soldier and Kealey's one-time student, is on an extended mission of terror against the United States. March nurses a pathological hatred against the U.S. and all it stands for. He is also an assassin of the highest order, being a master of explosives, firearms and unarmed combat. He is, in short, Kealey's mirror image. The last time they met, March came to within a hairs breadth of killing Kealey. When March's presence reveals itself in a dramatic and deadly fashion, Kealey is brought back into the service of the CIA.
Teamed with the brilliant and beautiful Naomi Kharmi, Kealey finds himself constantly a step behind March, who has aligned himself with Middle Eastern terrorists whose goal is nothing less than the destruction of western civilization in general and the United States specifically. Britton follows both men on twin tracks as their opposing goals slowly and inexorably head toward a collision.
