The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Ghost War and The Faithful Spy returns with a novel of international intrigue and catastrophic terrorism that "keeps the reader caring, and guessing, until the end." (Booklist)
For CIA operative John Wells, the underworld has become more real than the real world. He's spent years in the close company of evil men. And he's paid the price in every possible way. Now, he's on the ragged edge of burnout. His nights are plagued by twisted dreams. He's beginning to doubt if he can ever live a normal life.
He is right to think so.
