From the New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio talk-show host comes a lightning-paced first thriller about a maverick journalist who uncovers a chilling terrorist plot—and is the only one daring enough to put a stop to it.

Former war correspondent Jack Hatfield rose to national prominence for his insightful, provocative commentary. But after being smeared as a bigot and extremist by a radical leftist media-watchdog group, his career came crashing down. Now an obscure freelance news producer in San Francisco, Hatfield is going about his business one afternoon when, during a ride-along with the SFPD bomb squad, a seemingly routine carjacking turns deadly. When police find several pounds of military-grade explosives in the jacked car—and the FBI urges Hatfield to look the other way—he knows he’s onto his next, big story…

ABUSE OF POWER

Soon Hatfield finds himself following a shadowy trail that will take him across the globe, from Tel Aviv to London and Paris and back again, as he works with a stunning Yemeni intelligence agent and a veteran Green Beret to expose a powerful Islamist terrorist group with a plot to rival 9/11 and whose goal is nothing less than total political control—no matter what the cost…

“Score[s] a bull’s-eye.” —Publishers Weekly
