Navy SEAL James Reece faces a devastating global conspiracy in this high-adrenaline thriller that is ripped from the headlines—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “one of the top writers of political thrillers” (Bookreporter), Jack Carr.

In 1980, a freshman congressman was gunned down in Rhode Island, sending shockwaves through Washington that are still reverberating over four decades later.

Now, with the world on the brink of war and a weakened United States facing rampant inflation, political division, and shocking assassinations, a secret cabal of global elites is ready to assume control. And with the world’s most dangerous man locked in solitary confinement, the conspirators believe the final obstacle to complete domination has been eliminated. They’re wrong.

From the firms of Wall Street to the corridors of power in Washington, DC, and Moscow, secrets from the past have the uncanny ability to rise to the surface in the present.

With the odds stacked against him, James Reece is on a mission generations in the making. Unfortunately for his enemies, the former SEAL is not concerned with odds. He is on the warpath. And when James Reece picks up his tomahawk and sniper rifle, no one is out of range.

From “a master novelist” (Ballistic Magazine), “quintessential hero James Reece is exactly what’s needed in today’s chaotic political milieu” (K.J. Howe, author of Skyjack).

  • Great read

    By sipsey wilderness
    I’ve read the whole series and loved every book. Can’t wait for more by Jack Carr!

  • Couldn’t put it down

    By MJNurseS
    Action packed. If you liked the previous books you will enjoy this adventure.
  • Where’s the rest of the book?

    By bholland60
    Only two chapters?! Where’s the rest of it?
  • A Good Contiuation

    By Bencpody
    Jack. You’ve written another well rounded book. This one seems a bit rushed and repetitive in its verbiage at times. It has set up some good possible future plots. Still one of my favorite series. Waiting for you to top your Magnum Opus - Savage Son, and to that I say “Best of luck”.
  • Shortcut to a conclusion……

    By ...that checks out..
    Entertaining. Seems more like a hurried conclusion after the build up of previous books. Manages to capture the protagonist internal conflict but that internal battle is overshadowed with product placement. But still a fan of the author.

    just starting, but the exchange tween Reece and ‘the voice ‘ at supermax really bites the big one.
  • An interesting evolution of the character.

    Well worth reading, though I have to admit that it’s beginning to remind me of Jack Bauer in 24 with the main character wanting to walk away, ending up in a terrible situation where he’s been betrayed at some level and then jumping back into the fold. Overall it’s worth the read and the writing is phenomenal. I’m curious to see if there will be a seventh book and wonder what choices Reece will make in the future.
