Overview

Jack 'Tinlegs' Taylor is a former elite Navy SEAL platoon leader; the best of the best. Recovering from the wounds which ended his career, he returns home to Boston to find a city under siege. A violent Arab businessman is forcing people out of their homes so he can profit from their redevelopment. Payoffs to a local cop mean there is no one to stop the war he has declared on many of the city’s residents. Until he makes the mistake of targeting one of Taylor's platoon, Wes Harper. Taylor decides to help Wes fight the war. And for Taylor, war is his business.

'Tinlegs' Taylor brings his own brand of justice, using skills forged in the hell of Afghanistan and Iraq. First he must overcome his own demons, then it is time to go back into action. This time the battle will not be fought overseas, but will rage across the streets of one of the oldest cities in the US.

The enemy, Mehdi Hussein, will stop at nothing to win, bringing in a mercenary army that threatens to set the city ablaze. Although Taylor isn't the man he used to be, he must muster all his strength to battle an enemy as savage and determined as the Taliban. A thrilling story of a SEAL vet who overcomes every obstacle to go back into action to defend his comrade. The weapons are the same, the tactics are the same, but this time the fight is on their very doorsteps, and in their homes.
