"The violent terrorist group ISIS has launched a major military campaign to take over Syria. But as they commit more and more public atrocities, their sources for ammunition are drying up. However, their charismatic and tyrannical leader, Tristan Nazir, has a major card left to play, which will get a new secret shipment of arms underway. Dewey Andreas is sent into the field to meet Mallory, the Milan CIA station chief who has explosive proof about the source of the terrorists group's original funding. While ISIS operatives take out both Mallory and his source, Dewey escapes with the proof the group's original munitions were provided by a black-ops program from deep within the Pentagon itself"-- Provided by publisher.

This is an incredibly intense novel, I couldn't put it down. Once again Dewey Andreas gets tangled up into a complicated plot about ISIS and weapons obtained from the US. I would recommend this novel. Ben Coes is a very skilled author.

Great book until the Epilogue. That was awkward - leaving it off would have been a good idea.

Been a Coes fan since his first book. He never disappoints. Poor Dewey, he's got more battle scars and yet he keeps on keepin' on. Worth the read.
