John Wells goes undercover in Saudi Arabia in a cutting-edge novel of modern suspense from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.
Wells may have left the CIA, but it hasn't left him. A mysterious call
brings a surprise meeting with the aged monarch of Saudi Arabia, King
Abdullah. "My kingdom is on a precipice," he tells Wells. "Powerful
factions are plotting against me, and my own family is in danger. I
don't know who I can trust, but I'm told I can trust you."
and with the secret blessing of the CIA, Wells goes undercover; but the
more he learns, the more complicated things become, and soon he, too,
is unsure whom to trust, in Saudi Arabia or Washington. One thing,
however, is clear: If the conspirators prevail, it will mean more than
the fall of a monarch-it may be the beginning of the final conflagration
between America and Islam.
