Akil Hassan was the CIA's top agent inside the Middle East, a natural destined for an illustrious career, until he broke the Agency's rules. Cast out, his dreams shattered, he's now being offered a second chance. What he doesn't realize is that his life is about to be turned upside down, because tomorrow morning a terrorist is going to unleash a group of suicide bombers on New York City killing hundreds of innocent civilians, including a member of Akil's own family. But the bloodshed, as bad as it is going to be, is nothing compared to what's coming next. Intelligence out of Baghdad indicates a far deadlier attack is in the works, one involving the highest levels of the Iranian Government. In order to stop it, in order to save tens of thousands of lives, Akil will have to risk everything...his career, his future, his life. And this time there will be no second chances.
One man. One chance. Everything to lose!
