When veteran operator Pike Logan
and partner Jennifer Cahill receive a letter from Blaisdell
Consulting—the umbrella cover company for their real employer, a top
secret counterterrorist unit called the Taskforce—they expect orders for
their next mission-impossible tasking. Instead, they learn that their
latest actions have gotten them fired, despite having saved thousands of
Pike’s shock and fury is
redirected when their commander, Colonel Kurt Hale, asks him and
Jennifer for help with a personal matter: His niece Kylie, an exchange
student in England, has gone missing. Neither Pike nor Jennifer
understands how critical her disappearance will become.
Meanwhile, all Taskforce teams have been redirected to a developing
situation. A terrorist organization has targeted military relatives of
key members of the US government, including the vice president’s son.
Their seizure of hostages was far-reaching and meticulously coordinated,
and the full extent of the threat—and potential demands—has thrown the
government into turmoil. They face a terrible choice: Cease
counter-terrorist operations, or watch hostages die one by one. How much
is a single life worth? Unless the Taskforce can decipher the web of
lies devised by their enemies, the United States is about to find out.
