Suicide bombers are coming to America's heartland. Their targets: our most precious and vulnerable assets - children. Following the most terrifying lead of his life, CIA Director Kirk McGarvey traces the threat to a terrorist known as Khalil - and becomes convinced that Khalil and the Saudi playboy prince Abdul Hasim ibn Salman are the same man. From the deadly, frigid Alaskan waters to the balmy breezes of the French Riviera, and finally to the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, DC, McGarvey has to unravel the latest threat from Osama Bin Laden in order to save American schoolchildren from suicide bombers willing to martyr themselves as Soldiers of God.
