Six years after the Gulf War, Saddam Hussein plots revenge against his enemies. A new and far more virulent form of VX nerve gas, called the City Killer by western analysts, is finally produced in quantity. With the last of his SCUD missiles, Saddam plans to launch a devastating attack.

A clandestine rendezvous between a Han Class Chinese submarine and an Iraqi freighter to deliver the Chinese produced nerve agent takes place in the Northern Gulf. Something goes terribly wrong and an errant U-2 spy plane photographs the results.

Major Jim Harper leads a hastily assembled team back into Iraq. Harper faces dissension within his own team, uncertain support inside the intelligence community and a hostile welcome from the Al Amn al-Khas—Iraq’s Special Security Service.


Excerpt

Harper tossed the empty Barrett away. He crept down towards the burning vehicles and rolled a dead soldier over. There was a string of four grenades and an AK-47 in his hands. Grenades would do nothing to the APC, but a big noise might keep their attention. The shotgun was pretty much useless, unless he intended to get inside the APC—an unlikely scenario.

He looked around the burning wrecks. There were people still alive, but they were moving in a stunned and feeble manner. Both APCs were burning, and half the enemy force was out of the action. Four grenades, an AK-47 and a few rounds left in a shotgun do not make good odds against two fully armed APCs.

He backed away from the fire, hearing the mounted machine gun popping as they drew closer. There was no time to get several hundred meters away this time. He found a hole less than fifty meters away from the wrecks. It would be over soon, he concluded.
