ISIS Khorasan has seized control of several key provinces in Afghanistan and crowned a new emir. The new regime is poised to wrestle control of the region from the NATO-established government and is more brutal and deadly than the Taliban or Al Qaeda had ever been. A covert intelligence gathering unit has infiltrated the landscape and cultivated a network of spies from within Khorasan's network. Damien Collins, who struggles with severe anxiety, a troubled marriage and a custody dispute over his five year old daughter, is a member of an elite intelligence gathering team trying to stop the spread of ISIS and its emergence into the hotbed of Afghanistan. Damien's team has confidants within ISIS Khorasan which could turn the tide of the struggle. While Damien's team rushes to solidify their victories, he has to juggle his own chaos at home. Meanwhile ISIS looks to enact massive brutality over the Afghan government and its American overlords as it tried to prove itself as the most dominant tribe in the region. A Failed State takes readers from the domesticity of the United States and the chaos of Afghanistan to the glamor of Dubai and the terrorist networks of Turkey and Germany. Readers will bond with Damien and his colleagues and feel the full impact of America's war on terror, both at home and abroad, with every page.
