Forty years ago, a mysterious weapon disappeared in the jungles of Vietnam. Now a notoriously ruthless band of Somali pirates has found it and is threatening to sell it to Middle-Eastern terrorists. The CIA, desperate to retrieve the weapon and even more anxious to keep Washington out of it, recruits Team Whiskey, a group of former U.S. military men-turned-pirate hunters, to do their dirty work.
From a secret pirate lair in the Indian Ocean to the most exclusive casino in Monte Carlo, Snake Nolan and his resourceful men have the fight of their lives on their hands as they race against time to reclaim the deadly weapon before it falls into the wrong hands.
Just when they think the stakes can go no higher, they realize that their quarry is headed for New York City, on a suicide mission that will make the 9-11 attacks look like mere prologue to a catastrophe of unprecedented destruction.
