In this explosive series from New York Times bestselling author Harold Coyle and noted military author Barrett Tillman, a new type of war is being fought by private paramilitary companies at the beck and call of the highest bidder. With its military and intelligence agencies spread thin, the United States constantly calls upon these organizations--and Strategic Solutions, Inc., is among the best.
An SSI team, led by former Rear Admiral Michael Derringer, is in Chad on a relatively simple military-training mission. Their task soon turns into a high-stakes game of nuclear brinkmanship when they stumble across a plot to extract and smuggle yellowcake – the base fuel for nuclear weapons. Tracking the operation to a remote, supposedly abandoned mine in the desert, Derringer and the SSI task force launch an attack but are unable to halt the yellowcake shipment. With time running out, the SSI teams must locate a ship in international waters and retrieve its deadly cargo – by any means necessary.
