‘For Danny Quigley and his buddy Scotty McGregor, missing a flight was the start of a journey into hell.’
Thus starts the third novel in the Quigley series. The action is gritty and unrelenting as the SAS Special Forces duo embark on a NATO mission to rescue an American major and two important Afghan officials. It culminates in a fierce fire-fight when the alarm goes off at a pivotal moment and the Special Forces team are forced back up into the mountains, chased by hundreds of vengeful Taliban and Al Quada terrorists.
Even after Danny becomes a civilian, the nail-biting action never lets up when he receives a mysterious message from an old friend, long believed dead. He journeys into the deep woods of British Columbia
in Canada, to find him, and there discovers a threat against the U.S. that would make 9/11 look like a picnic.
Danny is unaware that in Washington a black operation has been initiated to terminate him, using a stone-cold killer, Pierre La Fonte, in collusion with a rogue CIA agent. The efforts to eliminate him are aided by an ex Serbian mercenary group illegally resident in Canada, who have a personal score to settle with the SAS.
When he finally locates his missing friend, he is forced to demonstrate his sniping skills, using a member of his party as a live target to prevent his group from being massacred. In a second test he has to take on a massive and highly trained opponent, in unarmed combat.
On discovering two buildings crammed with weapons and military hardware, the group have no option but to attempt to disrupt a planned and devastating attack against the United States. Out-manned and out-gunned and with their backs to the wire, Danny and his group make a last ‘Alamo’ stand against the highly trained enemy fighters hurled against them.
Like a buzzard floating high up on the thermal winds, Pierre La Fonte, watches and waits...
