About this ebook

USA Today Best-Selling Author

Terrorism, Corruption, Torture, and That's Just for Starters . . .


When Ali Hussein, suspected terrorist and alleged banker for Al Qaeda, is finally transported from Guantanamo Bay to the US mainland to stand trial, many are stunned when Byron Carlos Johnson, a pre-eminent lawyer and son of a high-profile diplomat, volunteers to represent him. On principle, Johnson thought he was merely defending a man unjustly captured through rendition and water-boarded illegally. But Johnson soon learns that there is much more at stake than one man's civil rights.

Hussein's intimate knowledge of key financial transactions could lead to the capture of or the unabated funding of the world's most dangerous terror cells.

This makes Hussein the target of corrupt US intelligence forces on one side, and ruthless international terrorists on the other—and puts Byron Carlos Johnson squarely in the crosshairs of both.

Perfect for fans of Nelson de Mille
