When covert isn’t hush-hush enough, the President calls on Phoenix, the CIA’s master assassin. He keeps his private number on speed dial for situations like this.

Special Ambassador Christine Needham, half-Jewish and devoted to creating a lasting peace in the mideast, has flown into Dubai.

Dubai rejects US assistance but the president can’t abandon the ambassador, there’s more at

Very good story line, kept my interest from beginning to end. Who was the "bad guy" pulling the strings in the background? It kind of felt like reading one of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels, the good guys survive some crazy assaults on their bodies and the operation, but keep coming back to fight another day. Would definitely read another book by Jeremy Burns.

The story has left Dubai in ruins. Well, if the Emirs can build an island then building their city is nothing for them. An enjoyable read with plenty of action.

I really liked this novel of international intrigue. It was packed with action from cover to cover. It is like James Bond meets Mission Impossible.

The plot could have come out of today's headlines. Christine Needham, appointed by the president as Ambassador to the Middle East, had just received shocking information when she is kidnapped in Dubai. Wayne Wilkins, deeply buried in the CIA as an assassin, is sent by the president to rescue the woman. The action is intense as it becomes evident there

Great read

This is a great read and hard to put down. It has everything you could want in a spy novel. It has action, suspense, and twists that leaves you wanting more. I hope there will be other books that follow the escapades of Wayne Wilkins as he seeks to rid the world of evil aggressors
