From the back cover: "A year ago, in the sky over Iraq, a hero was forged in the heat of battle. Navy Lieutenant Kevin Dalton destroyed Saddam Hussein's secret arsenal of nuclear missiles. Now, in R.J. Pineiro's much-anticipated sequel to ULTIMATUM, Dalton works for the CIA. Reunited with the beautiful Mossad agent Khalela, Dalton must untangle a web of conspiracy woven by the wrathful Iraqi leader as he seeks his retribution against the American people, sending his messengers bearing weapons of the apolcalypse to America. Only Dalton and Khalela can prevent the weapons from reaching their targets: New York City, Washington, D.C., and the President's birthplace, a small town called Hope."
