Overview

A US Navy Reserve captain is mobilized to active duty to serve as the Defense Attaché at the US Embassy in Pakistan's capital city. His primary mission is to exchange money with Afghan warlords in the mountains along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border for information leading to Osama bin Laden's capture. Most intelligence points to caves in these mountains as bin Laden's likely hiding place. However, when the captain befriends, and saves the life of, a humble Pakistani pizza delivery man, he learns that bin Laden and his bodyguards are ensconced in one of two safe houses in Islamabad. After a botched raid on the wrong house by Pakistani military forces, the captain's selfless -- and unauthorized -- heroics, aided by a lovely British administrative assistant from the embassy, lead to bin Laden's capture. This thriller novella follows the suspenseful story of the capture of Osama bin Laden by an unlikely hero, Captain Alan Drake, a high school English teacher from Tennessee.
