Spain is on
the brink of economic collapse and European banks demand that any
bailout be linked to harsh domestic changes. An alliance of Islamic
bankers counters with a rescue package containing no conditions at all.
The underlying goal: to break the unity of Europe and put Madrid on the
path back to Islamic rule.
When the United States stridently
opposes that deal, terrorists storm the American consulate in Barcelona
and slaughter an entire six-man U.S. Marine security guard. Washington
decides the time has come to change the rules of counter-terrorism
response, and instead of going after the individual hired gunmen, it
unleashes black operations team Task Force Trident to take down the
high-ranking financiers known as the Group of Six who were really
responsible for the slaughter. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, one of the
world’s best snipers, and his beautiful sidekick Beth Ledford, go on
the attack, and bodies fall from Mallorca to Madrid.
Meanwhile, Algerian mastermind
Yanis Rebiane puts pressure on Spain to decide before the Group of Six
cracks, while his killing-machine son, Djahid roams the United States,
murdering anyone his father deems a threat to the radical Islamic
takeover scheme. Once Swanson’s name is unearthed from secret files,
Kyle and Djahid become hunter and prey. In On Scope by Jack Coughlin and Donald A. Davis, one shot will decide the future of Spain, NATO, and the European Union.
