Publisher's Summary

Hidden in the vastness of the Saudi Arabian desert, a camel caravan of fugitives moves slowly toward its goal. Deep in the sand and out of sight are the men they seek, leaders of Al Qaeda, regrouping to strike again. One man in the caravan stands out for his strength and self-discipline. His identity is masked, his past blanketed from memory. His obsession is to be briefed on his next target. Searching for him in the limitless sands are American and British counterterrorism experts with their sophisticated electronics. If they fail to find and kill him, if he receives his orders, he will disappear again to re-emerge in a teeming Western city with a suitcase bomb that will create the ultimate devastation.

What the Critics Say

"he plot of Seymour's skilled thriller could be a contemporary headline 'Al Qaeda Terrorist Escapes; Allies Pursue Through Desert'....[He] offers an engrossing and thought-provoking look at an all-too-possible crisis." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Ends with a whimper not with a bang"

    The author's technique of fragmenting the story makes it intriguing for much of the book but eventually becomes tiresome. It also makes listening to this audiobook a bit challenging. The narrator has a wondeful voice and is excellent with accents-except for the American accent. He gives them all the same extra syllable pronunciation and it makes them seem a bit stupid. The ending will leave you saying, "huh?".
