The nationally bestselling, award-winning author of Countdown returns with this highly-acclaimed, explosive global thriller. Saddam Hussein wants an atom bomb--and those standing in his way killed. His most accomplished assassin and his sensuous but sadistic daughter are out to do just that--when confronted by the West's finest counter-intelligence agent.
Joseph Assad-Sherif is one of the world’s most dangerous assassins. Known as Saddam Hussein’s “Jackal,” his bloody hit list includes the 1972 Israeli Olympic athletes, the South Yemen cabinet, and the 20,000 slaughtered citizens of Hamma, Syria.
Now Assad-Sheriff has been called upon for his most vicious task, acquiring and transporting nuclear technologies for Iraq. When this psychopath takes the life of Sharazad Razmarah, an American citizen working with the German Secret Service, Federal investigator Walter Roemer is set on his trail. Roemer soon discovers that the clandestine operations of the nuclear industry hold many well-guarded secrets, which cannot ever see the light of day. Roemer finds himself battling not only the crazed Assad-Sherif but the German Secret Service, and the clock is ticking: on Assad-Sherif’s orders, Iraqi terrorists are heading for Germany’s largest nuclear facility . . . with suicidal detonation plans.
