They came from all walks of life. . .to answer their nation’s call and form the National Clandestine Service’s top strike team. They are a brotherhood of steel, forged in the fires of battle.
If they fail, their country will deny their existence. . .
If they succeed, no one will know. . .
They are shadow warriors. . .
Harry Nichols: A native of the rural Virginian Piedmont, he joined the CIA straight out of college. Now a fifteen-year veteran paramilitary operations officer, he leads a crack team of commandos into the shadows of war across the globe. The stakes are higher than ever before. . .
Hamid Zakiri: A naturalized citizen, Hamid was raised an Iraqi Shiite, coming to the States after Desert Storm forced his family to flee Saddam Hussein’s oppression. Now he’s Harry’s right-hand man, his religious devotion split equally between Islam and the NFL.
Jack “Tex” Richards: His grandfather was a full-blooded Mescalero Apache, and he’s lost none of the old man’s skill. Before coming to the Company, he was a demolitions expert in the elite Marine Force Recon. A tall, quiet man, he forms the backbone of the team.
Thomas Parker: He was an investment banker before his company disappeared into the ashes of the World Trade Center Towers. Before that dark September morning, he had never held a gun in his life. Now he’s a sniper, a tough, silent angel of death on the battlefield.
Davood Sarami: The newest man on the team, he is assigned to them for the duration of Operation TALON because of his Iranian background and fluent Farsi. But when TALON begins to fall apart in the mountains of northwestern Iran, it appears his past may be a liability. Or is it something darker. . .
Their loyalty to each other knows no bounds. But neither does the cunning of the foe. And even the strongest steel can bend—and break. . .
