"They have our weapons, Mr. President!" When circumstances spare the life of her target, Grace trails him across the Middle East, the South Pacific and Mexico to uncover the terrorist's plan. Sahm Mahaz bin Batal, terrorist financier and dealer in death, has gained access to the most secret - and least expected - defense weapons the US has ever created. Allied with a bitter enemy of the United States, he is bent on destroying as much of the United States as possible. After gunfights, being blown through the wall of a house and sporting an embarrassing pair of wounds, the President asks Grace to put an end to the madness - a war that should never have happened. She readily undertakes the task, but runs into trouble when escaping with a wounded comrade, after locating the man she considers responsible for enabling the war - and the death of a best friend.
