Amelia Lennon no longer wears a uniform or carries a weapon. An Army
trained Foreign Affairs Officer, she’s negotiating a dispute with the
Kyrgyzstan government that threatens to leave the U.S. without an
airbase in that region. She traded her gun for the power of words, but
now she needs both.
While following her government contact —
Jildiz Oskonbaeva, the lawyer daughter of Kyrgyzstan’s president —
Amelia witnesses an attempt to abduct her. She manages to prevent the
kidnapping, but now the two women are on the run in a city that’s
erupting into chaos.
Master Sergeant J.J. Bartley is the Special
Operations team leader tasked to rescue Amelia and Jildiz. With two new
members in his unit — one with a secret that could endanger everyone’s
life — J.J. must soldier his unit through crazed mobs intent on
overthrowing the government. Back home, his pregnant wife is misinformed
that her husband and the team have been killed. But before this is
over, Bartley will find out that’s the least of his problems.
