"World War Three has already started, Mr McLain, but most of the world doesn't know it yet." Following the brutal murder of his brother in Afghanistan, businessman Harry McLain reluctantly returns to Kabul where he becomes a suspect in a car bombing incident and involved in a cybersecurity operation. Hassled by the police and with his passport confiscated, he is unable to leave the country. His delayed departure results in him being taken hostage by the Taliban and threatened with instant death. A daring rescue attempt puts him in even more danger and nearly ends in tragedy. Will members of The Gander Club be able to save him and will the meaning of 'What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander', become clear?
