Rear Admiral Jake Grafton must stop a Middle Eastern terrorist group from obtaining nuclear weapons in Moscow and avoid an assassination attempt on his life from rogue conspirators within the CIA before it’s too late.

As the infrastructure of the Soviet Union crumbles before the world’s eyes, twenty thousand tactical nuclear weapons, once under the command of the Soviet military, are up for grabs—and U.S. intelligence believes they may soon appear on the open market.

Rear Admiral Jake Grafton, Deputy Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, is dispatched to Moscow. His assignment: ensure that the weapons are destroyed before the disappear into a Middle East terrorist pipeline. But Grafton discovers that unidentified American officials want his mission to fail—and will go to any length of stop it. Meanwhile, off the coast of the Canary Islands, the body of British billionaire and media magnate Nigel Keren has been found floating in the sea near his yacht. Grafton’s contracts in Israeli intelligence have evidence that he was the victim of hit squad from within the CIA. It’s the kind of knowledge that could prove fatal, but Grafton can’t back off: if the freelance operation succeeds, Middle East hostility could explode into an international conflagration. The only thing Grafton knows for sure is that he has been targeted for an assassination, and the conspiracy is clearly stamped: Made in America.

Admiral Jake Grafton gets involved in a plot to destabilize Russia and to steal nuclear weapons. Sad am Husain is buying nuclear missiles from some old Russian politicians. The people destroy a nuclear power plant and cause the worst radiation leak ever.

Like Tom Clancy without the restraint. Also, if you're writing fiction, maybe having two of your three main characters named "Jack" and "Jake" is a bit confusing.

An intense book for those who follow the saga of "Jake Grafton". I can't wait to find out how it ends (3 books from this one). I hope that he retires rather than get killed!!

Even though it is an older book, this was great. These stories about Jake Grafton is one of my favorite series. Keep writing them.
