Facing international gangsters in deadly shootouts and high-speed chases, Gill Underwood's fate rests on his mastery of The Art of War...and on his thirst for vengeance.
Gill Underwood and his jewel-heisting partner Trudy Elwell have been set up, and Trudy has paid the ultimate price. Now Underwood, a former naval intelligence officer, is holding $150 million worth of hot sparks, running from ruthless gangs of Serbians, Chinese, Israelis, and Cubans--and the Feds are closing in. With speed, technology, brains, and brawn, Underwood must turn the tables in a heart-pounding game of cat and mouse that leads to the most deadly enemy of all.

The Clause will appeal to readers who look for Bourne Identity style thrillers.
