When America learns that Islamic jihadists have destroyed oil sites in Saudi Arabia, inflation hits the world's financial markets, which causes Congress to adopt a bill that allows one hundred specialists to seek and destroy the terrorists.

With this suspenseful, action-packed finale, Oliver North concludes the trilogy that has included his best-selling novels Mission Compromised and The Jericho Sanction.

In 2005, the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on America is met with the news that Jihadists have attacked multiple targets in Saudi Arabia, destroying oil pumping equipment, crippling pipelines, and assassinating most of the royal family. In the U.S. gas prices soar to over $6 a gallon along with hyper-inflation across the world financial markets. “Non-business travel” in the U.S. is limited to no more than 500 miles per week.

The UN Security Council authorizes an international intervention force, and in a closed session of Congress the “Assassination Bill” is introduced. A “Termination or Neutralization Unit” is formed with Gen. Peter Newman as its head. He is given authority for up to 100 specialists, which he recruits and trains.

It is discovered Iranians plan to detonate a nuke in Washington. Newman and a team are dispatched and a chase across Europe and international waters ensues. Newman hunts his illusive nemesis to Mexico and Cuba, but the Iranians have a backup plan in place and ready a plane repainted as a FedEx cargo jet and armed with a nuclear weapon—headed for Washington.
