As a former intelligence officer and counter-terrorism expert, Simon Ashcroft thought he’d left the violent world of insurgency behind him, until a young woman is kidnapped and Ashcroft is tasked to rescue her.
A trail of clues leads a wary Ashcroft and the woman’s distressed sister to a remote tropical island, where they quickly confront an army of murderous thugs and a bloody trail of bodies. The rescue mission is anything but straightforward, and Ashcroft realizes there is more to this mystery than a simple kidnapping.
When the enemy reveals himself, he is everything Ashcroft expects and worse, a ruthless financier of global terrorism, willing to destroy anyone threatening his illicit cash pipeline funding the world’s cruelest and most barbaric ideology, the Islamic State.
Kidnapping was only ever the beginning . . .
