About the Book
A powerful banker, gunned down in cold blood. A military family, senselessly slaughtered as they sleep. A four-star general, hacked and framed by virtual assassins. Another key general, kidnapped from his farm near Fort Bragg. Atrocities like these are all too common in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. But this is the United States of America . . .
When Jake Mahegan receives a distress call from General Savage in North Carolina, he rushes to the commanders homeand walks right into an ambush. When the smoke clears, Mahegan is alive but the implications of the attack are as absolute as death: The terrorists are here . . . and no one is safe. Joining forces with Savages combat JAG officer, Alexandra Russell, Mahegan follows the trail to a killer who goes by the name Jackknife, a Syrian refugee-turned-terrorist who vows to avenge the bombing of a Syrian weddingby killing as many Americans as possible.
But time is running out for Mahegan. Terrorist cells are gathering in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hackers are emptying the nations banks of millions of dollars. And their final act of vengeance will bring the whole world to its knees. For Mahegan, its time to kill. Now.
