The enemy has found a new path to America's doorstep, and is approaching fast. In South America, covert operatives Ed Storey and Lee Troy discover that Al Qaeda and the criminal underworld have combined their resources, with money moving from the jungles to the deserts of the Middle East. And now terrorists are moving from the Middle East right to the U.S./Mexican border. There is a nightmarish plan in the works - and time is running out to stop it. But the madmen of Al Qaeda are already moving towards their goal - a devastating attack that will disrupt the presidential election and drain the Americans of their will to fight. And as Storey and Troy work their way closer to the terrorists, the odds against them skyrocket. For the terrorists have a secret ally who has been guiding them in their quest for bloodshed - an ally who works on the inside.
