(From the publisher):
A tightly coordinated series of attacks shatters America's energy-producing capacity-a major hydroelectric dam is blown up and the largest offshore oil field in the hemisphere is destroyed-bringing the country's largest energy company to its knees. But when the terrorists struck the Capitana platform off the coast of Columbia-slaughtering most of the crew and destroying the oil field-there was one factor they didn't take into account: Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, overcomes the team of terrorists, and rescues as many of his men as possible. But with that battle, the war was just begun.
Determined to find and bring to account the men who planned the attack, Dewey must call on his long-dormant skills and overcome waves of increasingly deadly assaults as he follows the trail of terrorists and operatives sent to stop him.
Meanwhile, the mysterious Alexander Fortuna-an agent embedded into the highest levels of American society and business-prepares to launch the second stage of his long-planned attacks. With Dewey Andreas coming ever closer, the two men are locked in a deadly race against time: Fortuna to finally unleash the broader assault against America that has been his life's mission, and Dewey to find and stop Fortuna, to protect the country and the people that he loves.
