When Dr Kate Shawcross is kidnapped by a Taliban leader -
Masud - he plans to hold her hostage. Kate is the daughter of
a US senator and Masud demands $1 million for her release.
No money will be paid, so Major Nathan Connor and his
Delta Force team are assigned to rescue her.
But with Connor still looking for Hassan, the son of his
dead friend, will he be able to hold all the pieces together
without getting himself, or his team, killed?
Explosive action and a thrilling, high-paced read
is guaranteed in these gritty war adventures,
which follow the behind-enemy-lines exploits
of a squad from the US special combat unit known
as 'Delta Force'.
