Description Lieutenant Colonel Art Jensen finds himself a soldier without an army after he is caught on tape killing an Iraqi terrorist in a Baghdad fire fight - only to have the media make him out to be a murderer. A career spent serving his beloved country now seems to be over...Until Jensen receives a new set of orders - secret orders. He is promoted to brigadier general, and placed in charge of the Special Function Unit - a new, covert black ops team. A team of one. The terrorists are already here. Financed and trained by a billionaire Saudi prince determined to bring the infidel America to its knees, a number of sleeper cells within the U.S. are being activated. Officially, the politically protected prince is untouchable, and his campaign of terror stands ready to begin. But Art Jensen is no longer a soldier bound by orders - he's a weapon, bound by duty and honour, and he has one mission: to destroy the enemy within.

A team of one

William Johnstone is a prolific writer of fiction. As a fiction writer he is very entertaining, I find myself chuckling at the things some of his characters do, and cheering others. This is not classic fiction, it's the kind of trashy pulp fiction that many of us secretly read because it's so entertaining. I've read about half of his books and I'm happy that I have.

Triggers: Lots of violence in these stories, wars, post-apocalyptic, and the good guys taking on terrorists. People get harmed or killed in these books.

Lieutenant Colonel Art Jensen finds himself a soldier without an army after he is caught on tape killing an Iraqi terrorist in a Baghdad firefight--only to have the media make him out to be a murderer. A career spent serving his beloved country now seems to be over. Until Jensen receives a new set of orders--secret orders. He is promoted to brigadier general, and placed in charge of the Special Function Unit--a new, covert "black ops" team. A team of one. The terrorists are already here. Financed and trained by a billionaire Saudi prince determined to bring the infidel America to its knees, a number of sleeper cells within the U.S. are being activated. Officially, the politically protected prince is untouchable, and his campaign of terror stands ready to begin. But Art Jensen is no longer a soldier bound by orders--he's a weapon, bound by duty and honor, and he has one mission: to destroy the enemy within.
