And when the FBI urges Hatfield to stay out of it, he knows he's onto something big.
This event will open up a shadowy trail that leads Hatfield from San Francisco to Tel Aviv, London, Paris, and back again, as he works with a stunning Yemeni intelligence agent and a veteran Green Beret to expose a terrorist group known as the Hand of Allah—and a plot within the highest corridors of power that will dwarf 9/11.

Jack Hatfield must make the choice between protecting his own life and investigating a terrorist cell whose goal is nothing less than total political control—no matter what the cost.

Michael Savage has crafted a modern work of art. The plot and characters are so relevant to todays political and social world. It is thrilling, modern and relevant. We could almost call this "faction." The novel is art imitating life. At times as ironic as it may seem I envisioned Savage, well a younger version of as our hero Jack Hatfield. Who likes '85 Glenrothes followed by a couple of Becks. I'd say reading this was like inspecting the parts of fine vintage watch. A Hamilton Gilbert in which Jack had inherited from his father.
Savage has no problems telling who the enemy is. There is no blurred line. Jack is sanity in a world gone awry by political correctness. Of which all of us are so very exhausted of. Oh, and I don't like that Soren very much. The eighty one year old communist billionaire.
Hatfield at times quotes memories from the Old Testament which I found thought provoking. He has memories and lessons remembered from his father and Rabbi friend. Near the end my heart was pounding.
His little dog Eddie is so lovable. I wish there was more of an important role in which the little guy played. I can hardly wait for more adventures from aboard the "Sea Wrighter".
