Call it all-American pride. Call it vengeance. The Ocean Voyager is on course. A thirty-thousand-ton undercover assault warship set loose in the Middle East. For Colonel Ryder Long of the U.S. Air Force, fighting to win is in his blood. The same could be said for Bobby Murphy-real identity unknown-a shadowy military genius and super spy programmed for revenge. The crew: Superhawks, a crack secret op team bound by a single war cry: "Remember the Twin Towers!"
Their target is Abdul Kazeel, a notorious madman with connections throughout the Persian Gulf. Infamous in the terrorist underworld and top mission planner for Al Qaeda, he's planning a new attack on America with a destructive force that threatens the future of the free world. Only the Superhawks can stop this enemy dead in his desert tracks as they declare their own war in full explosive fury and enforce world peace through any means necessary.

"Praise Allah!" Jazeer cried. "No!"
The Crazy Americans were here.
Finally Jazeer had to scream.
He could see the man's finger begin to squeeze the trigger. Jazeer was expecting a bullet to his brain at any moment...but then the soldier screamed at him again. "Hands out front!"
Jazeer immediately laid his hands on the counter. He opened his eyes just in time to see the ax coming down. He saw blood, he saw pieces of bone...
Jazeer collapsed in shock. The American soldier stood over him and in perfect Arabic, hissed: "If you have no hands, you will be of no further use to Al Qaeda!"
Then the soldier threw a handful of playing cards on top of Jazeer and left.
One card fell next to where Jazeer's head had hit the floor. He could see it perfectly, through fading eyes. It was a photo of New York City's Twin Towers with the message: We Will Never Forget.
