This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When a raid on a terrorist cell leaves no survivors and few clues, New York City police have a problem: since the tip was anonymous, they have no idea why the terrorists were there. Detective Mike Maclaymore has the impossible task of finding out what the cell was planning. When a Saudi princess shows up to ID one of the bodies, he knows this goes deeper than anyone feared. He and the princess pair up to learn the truth, neither sure they can trust the other. The trail leads to a Saudi diplomat, beheaded in his apartment. And to a shadowy figure from Mike’s past as a Black Ops soldier in wartime Afghanistan—a warlord hunted by all sides, and caught by none. Now Mike races to uncover his identity, and stop an attack that will destroy New York City—and then the U.S. economy.
The novel has a fast paced plot, full of twists and turns until the very end. The characters are fully realized each with there own agenda with nods to Shakespeare's Hamlet (Detective Mike) and Macbeth (Sayf). If one likes political thrillers/international thrillers this book is an excellent read. Note: The author also adapted the story into a manga graphic novel.
