When three CIA employees go missing, there is only one man willing to find them in the depths of the African wilderness. That man is Jack Casey, a retired CIA operative, and nothing can stop him-because one of the missing men saved his life.
Casey is lucky to be alive after a horrific helicopter crash in the jungles of Zimbabwe. He alone survived, and he owes his life to fellow CIA operative Mike Shocklee. He is alarmed when he learns through the intelligence grapevine that Shocklee and two colleagues have been kidnapped by an African soldier.
Colonel Simon Njonjo, a rebel soldier who is loyal to the ousted former president of Zimbabwe, has mounted a brutal attack on Harare Station, a CIA outpost. The bloody assault leaves many station personnel dead and three missing, including Mike Shocklee. No sign of them can be found in Zimbabwe; no ransom is requested, and it's suspected the men have been taken into Mozambique for political purposes. It also is suspected that they will be mistreated, and quite probably tortured or killed. But the CIA's hands are tied when the American president makes it clear that no rescue teams are to search across the border in Mozambique; the unstable political situation there makes the CIA employees expendable.
Jack Casey disagrees; if no one else will go, he will. Despite his retirement status and his settled, comfortable life with his wife, Cherie, he searches for a way to unofficially mount his own search. Returning to Zimbabwe and calling on old friends and allies, Casey is determined to find and rescue the man who pulled him out of the helicopter wreckage. Casey knows the hostages are in grave danger in the hands of Simon Njonjo, a man who will stop at nothing to see his leader returned to the presidency-through any means necessary.
