Clancy meets LeCarré in Matthew Quirk's action-packed new thriller.Former combat medic John Byrne's vacation in southern California is interrupted when FBI agents bring him in for questioning and charge him with burglary, grand larceny, the use of weapons of mass destruction, and a litany of other felonies. It's a case of mistaken identity, but the FBI isn't taking any chances, freezing Byrne's bank accounts and adding his name to the no-fly list. Byrne is left with nowhere to turn--until he's picked up by the very man the government seeks: Thomas Hayes.Byrne recognizes Hayes from the early days of his military service. In the years since, Hayes has become a special ops squad leader as formidable as he is infamous. He claims he and his teammates have been wrongly accused of terrorist acts, and the series of heists they're planning will yield enough evidence to clear their name. But Byrne sees another possibility: these daring heists could lead to a catastrophic attack on American soil.Byrne isn't sure who to believe--Hayes, his former brother in arms, or Colonel Riggs, the leader of the task force charged with bringing Hayes down. Byrne must decide where his allegiances lie--or he and the entire country will face the consequences.

Details abound in this fast-paced novel -- how to avoid a drone, how to convert a car into your own personal safety deposit box -- but not at the expense of action, of which there is plenty. The complex story revolves around a group of American black ops agents led by John Hayes, who has been accused of committing war crimes, and the hunt to find him and his team before they launch an attack on U.S. soil. Caught in the middle is his former friend, Tom Byrne, who's been recruited by the U.S. government to find Hayes, but who struggles with his loyalties and is unsure whom to trust. "Hair-raising," says Booklist of a novel that is "even more chilling for its air of plausibility."
