Long-buried secrets. A devastating global conspiracy. And only one man who can stop it: Navy SEAL James Reece. From the “seriously good” (Lee Child) #1 New York Times bestselling author, 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).


  • At times a difficult read but does get back on track

    By Greywolf8577
    I had to skip over parts because they were just acronyms and word salad and then he would get back on track and the story would move along.
  • Amazing!

    WOW! This book moved fast. I really liked it. The only thing is James does kind of “walk” in to some situations that I would believe he should not have. But of course he gets himself out of them. Love this series.
  • Best so far..

    Carr is creeping up on the Thor’s and Silva’s of the genre as top dog! Love to see a Reece Harvath pairing!

    Great book
  • Another excellent entry

    By TigersJC86
    Just another phenomenal thriller from Jack Carr and my favorite since his 3rd books Savage Son. This book answered a lot of questions, had some intense and brutal action and enough espionage and detail of the real to scare you to the realities of the world but engross you to turn the page and keep turning till the end.
  • Terrifyingly believable

    Jack Carr has captured our world today. If only we had a real life James Reece to take out the trash.
