Book Details

International terrorist Asahif al-Massoud, AKA The Viper, will soon arrive on U.S. soil to carry out the most heinous and murderous terrorist plot since 9-11. By engaging an American-based Jamaat ul-Fuqra element, his plan is to simultaneously detonate explosive devices in a number of American cities, including Washington, D.C. and New York’s Manhattan, that will kill thousands and destroy the cities’ infrastructure. Bruce McGowan would do almost anything to protect the citizens of the United States. But would this former counter-terrorist operative actually agree to come out of his retirement to take on yet another mission for the Government, and in doing so, break a promise to his wife, the lovely Adriana, proprietress of Wolf Laurel? And who is the mysterious hit man, Atticus Steed that McGowan has been tasked to locate...this cold and calculating killer still on America’s Most Wanted list? Is the Government really serious about Bruce engaging an executioner like Steed to take down the Viper in exchange for a full Presidential pardon? In this latest installment of The McGowan Chronicles, much to his chagrin, Bruce will reluctantly and with immense skepticism establish an alliance with hit man Steed and set him up to kill the Viper. Based on the latest Intel, al-Massoud will enter one of the thirty-five American al-Qaeda training compounds in early September. McGowan must now devise a tactical plan that will place him and Steed inside that camp to set up for the kill. Will McGowan’s clandestine plan be successful? Will the number one sniper in the world get his crack at the most dangerous terrorist in the world? No matter what...the Viper must die.
