(From the publisher):
Wanting only a peaceful, obscure life, Dewey Andreas has gone to rural Australia, far from the turbulent forces that he once fought against. But powerful men, seeking revenge, have been scouring the earth looking for Dewey. And now, they've finally found him-forcing Dewey to abandon his home and to fight for his life against a very well armed, well trained group of assassins.
Meanwhile, a radical cleric has been elected president of Pakistan and, upon taking power, sets off a rapidly escaling conflict against India. As the situation spins quickly out of control it becomes clear that India is only days from resorting to a nuclear response, one that will have unimaginable disastrous results for the world at large. With only days to head this off, the President sends his best people, including Jessica Tanzer, to do whatever it takes to restore the fragile peace in the region. Tanzer has only one viable option-to set up and execute a coup d'etat in Pakistan-and only one man in mind to lead the team that will try to pull off this almost unimaginable task in the nerve-wrackingly short time frame, Dewey Andreas. If, that is, Jessica can even get to Dewey and if Dewey can get out of Austraila alive.
