If Zufar al-Massoud, the celebrated leader of the Salafist jihadists, accomplishes his planned terrorist act, Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. will forever be known as America’s Day of Blood. He and his fellow conspirators will not only place multiple IEDs along the New York City Macy’s parade route, slaughtering thousands of onlookers, but will release canisters of sarin gas on the subway landings in both New York and Washington, D.C. Hours later when America thinks it’s all over, two fertilizer bombs planted at the Cowboys-Lions game at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas will kill hundreds maybe thousands more.
But this will not be al-Massoud’s only crusade. As he is also on a quest to avenge the murder of his brother, Asahif, AKA the Viper, by killing Asahif’s assassin, Atticus Steed, at Steed’s beach home in Antigua, he inadvertently shoots and wounds Steed’s wife, Maria. While she lies in ICU near death, Steed, who is himself now out for revenge but helplessly compelled to stay at Maria’s side, engages the support of his old comrade-in-arms, ex-counterterrorist operative Bruce McGowan. Unbeknownst to McGowan, however, he is likewise on al-Massoud’s hit list and must take necessary steps to protect his own wife, Adriana, from certain peril.
In this gripping cat-and-mouse sequel in the Wolf Laurel series, McGowan and Steed once again team up to find and kill the dangerous al-Massoud before he puts his heinous plans of attack into action. Tick tock.
