Summary
Entreated for help by an English-Bedouin man whose thirteen-year-old daughter has been kidnapped and forced to marry a terrorist, intelligence operative Sean Dillon finds his willing assistance sparking a deadly chain of events.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

For intelligence operative Sean Dillon, it is a routine passport check. But the events it will lead to will be as bloody as any he has ever known. The man he stops at Heathrow airport is Caspar Rashid, born and bred in England, but with family ties to a Bedouin tribe fiercely wedded to the old ways, as he’s just found out to his pain.

Rashid’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Sara, has been kidnapped by his own father and taken to Iraq to be married to a man known as the Hammer of God, one of the Middle East’s most feared terrorists. Dillon has had his own run-ins with that tribe, and when the distraught man begs Dillon for help, he sees a chance to settle some old scores—but he has no idea of the terrible chain of events he is about to unleash, nor of the implacable enemies he is about to gain. Before his journey is done, many men will die—and Dillon may be one of them.
