“Rockets toward a shattering climax like an incoming missile.”—Stephen Coonts, author of Flight of the Intruder and Final Flight

The countdown begins when welder Jack Hummel is abducted from his suburban Maryland home and whisked to the South Mountain MX missile site—a top-secret nuclear complex now taken over by paramilitary terrorists.
All that stands between the Uzi-armed commandos and the launch button is a half-ton titanium block. They want Jack Hummel to cut through it—so they can unleash a devastatingly brilliant plot that threatens global disaster.
Now a Delta Force veteran and a think-tank defense wizard must get inside South Mountain—by defeating their own super-security systems and a darkly ingenious enemy leader . . .  

. . . while Jack Hummel’s torch burns closer and closer to the launch key . . . while the clock ticks closer to midnight—and Armageddon.
