The master of international intrigue and explosive action introduces a new hero for a new era of warfare . . . against a new kind of threat. Get ready to meet ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore. For years, ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America's enemies at every turn. When Moore arrives at a rendezvous to take charge of a high-ranking Taliban captive, the meeting takes a horrific turn that neither Moore nor any of his bosses saw coming. Barely surviving, he tries to bring to safety a Pakistani colonel with information about the debacle, only to have that mission fall prey to forces more powerful and cunning than any he has faced before. Undaunted, and with failure not an option, Moore continues his quest for the truth, leaving many dead in his wake--killed by those for whom secrecy is the ultimate weapon. In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U. S. -Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.
El autor de best sellers #1 del New York Times y de la exitosa novela Vivo o muerto "es el rey supremo del popular género de suspenso".* Ahora, en una historia que va desde los remotos paisajes del Medio Oriente marcados por la guerra hasta el caos sangriento en la frontera de los Estado Unidos con México, Tom Clancy ofrece una novela alucinante que es alarmantemente parecida a la realidad. El ex-SEAL de la Armada Maxwell Moore--quien trabaja encubierto para la División de Actividades Especiales de la CIA--llega a una cita para hacerse cargo de un prisionero talibán de alto rango. Pero la reunión de un giro terrible que ni Moore ni ninguno de sus jefes veía venir. Sin dejarse intimidar, no teniendo el fracaso como opción, Moore continúa su búsqueda de la verdad, dejando muchos muertos a su paso...asesinados por aquellos para quienes el secreto es la mayor de las armas. Luego llega una revelación impactante: Dos de las mayores amenazas para la seguridad de los Estados Unidos han foriado una alianza nefasta. Después de años de planificación, los talibanes han llegado a un acuerdo con un despiadado cartel de drogas mexicano par el que suministrarán opio. Para el cartel, es una cuestión de dinero, poder y control absoluto del tráfico de drogas. Pero para los talibanes es una oportunidad largamente esperada: explotar los carteles a llevar el fuego de la yihad al corazón de los infieles. *Publishers Weekly
