RECRUITED:
A crack team of cover agents.
Word is out to ex-Marine sniper Charlie Dean and his team of the National Security Agency: Infiltrate the highest stratum of Peruvian political power and derail a renegade general from acing an election. All Dean has to do is find a way inside an impenetrable bank vault protected by armed guards round the clock–it’s all in a day’s work for the men and women of Deep Black.

ENGAGED:
A violent political coup
But things get complicated when Dean and company discover the renegade general’s second plot. The military madman’s ruse—a nuclear weapon he claims is in the hands of Marxist guerillas, a bomb that only he can rescue…and control.

IGNITED:
A devastating terrorist plot.
When the general and his plot are exposed, the NSA concludes the greatest threat is over. But in fact, it’s only just beginning…
