Overview

Dan Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line. It goes with the territory when you're an undercover cop. Now working for Britain's top anti-organized crime agency, Shepherd is pitting his wits against the toughest criminals in the country. But when the man who once saved his life is kidnapped in the badlands of Iraq, thrown into a basement, and threatened with execution, Shepherd has to decide whether his loyalties lie with his country, his career, or his friend. Shepherd and his former SAS colleagues realize that the hostage has been abandoned by the British government and that, officially, nothing is being done to rescue him. And with the execution only days away, Shepherd knows that the only way to save his friend's life is to put himself on the firing line in the most dangerous city in the world—Baghdad.
