Marine sniper Kyle Swanson and his beautiful girlfriend, CIA agent Lauren Carson, are on a mission in Pakistan when their world is turned inside out. Kyle is captured and thrown in prison. Lauren is accused of being a double agent. The one person they can trust to help is the man who sent them on the black operation -- Jim Hall, a legendary CIA agent, Kyle's sniper mentor, and Lauren's boss and former lover. But Hall has gone rogue. He is selling America's innermost secrets to a ruthless Pakistani warlord who wants to mould al- Qaeda into a legitimate political party, and secure a nuclear arsenal. For Jim Hall, his former protege Swanson is the final obstacle. Caught in the sights of a man he once idolized, and who taught him how to shoot, Swanson must prevent a global disaster -- from the streets of Washington to the Bavarian Alps, the two snipers stalk each other in a deadly hunt that has only one possible outcome.
