A swarm of terrorist activity has put the United States on its most heightened alert level since September 11, 2001. Investigations into each of these seemingly unrelated acts uncover the same cryptic codeword: Allah's Scorpion.
Former CIA Director Kirk McGarvey is called into action. Masterminded by Osama bin Laden himself, Allah's Scorpion may be the ultimate strike against America, a grand finale to what began on 9/11. A pair of Russian nuclear missiles that were spirited into Libya just before the invasion of Iraq are in transit to an undisclosed launch site in the Atlantic Ocean. With the help of the Gloria Ibanez, a tough, but sexy Cuban-born CIA agent, and Otto Renke, the eccentric computer genius in the CIAs Special Projects division, Kirk McGarvey must track down the ever-elusive bin Laden in hopes of knocking out Allah's Scorpion.
