In R. J. Pineiro's much-anticipated sequel to Ultimatum, Dalton, a hero as great as Stephen Coonts' Jake Grafton or Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, now works for the CIA. As Saddam prepares to strike at the heart of the United States, Dalton finds himself facing the ultimate horror: nuclear weapons on American soil.
Acquired from the Russian Mafia through an infamous international arms dealer, three warheads of mass destruction are smuggled into the United States. They are Saddam's revenge for his defeats at the hands of America.
Reunited with the beautiful Mossad agent Khalela, Dalton must untangle a web of conspiracy that leads from Jersey City mosques to the backwoods of Virginia, from Atlantic City casinos to the bayous of Louisiana. Only he and Khalela can prevent the weapons from reaching their separate targets: New York City, Washington, D.C., and the President's birthplace, a small town called Hope.
