For the seasoned warriors of America's most elite and covert defense unit, each mission could be their last.

It is brilliant technology from the space race days, shelved long ago in favor of more sophisticated weaponry. No nukes, no warheads, just simple rods of stainless steel corralled in space and sent jetting into Earth's atmosphere at Mach 2 to hit selected targets with white-hot balls of molten metal. Cheap to make, impossible to stop, and easy to deploy, it has fallen into hostile hands. Across the globe, a demonstration of the accuracy of Sky Hammer leaves little doubt that this could be the endgame for Stony Man…and the world.
The men and women of the covert defense team Stony Man were handpicked because they believe in a cause, driven by a passion that sends them into daily battle against impossible odds.

Her destructive genius is fueled by white-hot vengeance, and she's not above spreading mass murder across the globe to achieve it. For Stony Man, it's a showdown of blood and justice that's as personal as it gets.
Accountable only to the Oval Office and fully committed to the security of the U.S. in an ever-morphing terrorist landscape, the warriors of Stony Man never relent, tire or fold. America's last line of defense understands that all it takes for evil to prevail is for a few good people to stand down. For Stony Man, that day will never come. Not now. Not ever.
