An anonymous attacker known as Terror’s Sword is heading for the U.S. with an unidentified bioweapon. His mission: erase America from existence. When intelligence agencies fail to identify the terrorist, the president taps elite counterterrorism operative Kyle McEwan to hunt down the terrorist and eliminate the threat. McEwan is the highly classified, off-the-books weapon America unleashes when all other methods fail.
Piecing together clues from the kidnappings and murders of the world’s foremost bioweapons experts, McEwan quickly confirms the threat’s authenticity and imminent danger. Tracking the terrorist across multiple continents, McEwan and U.S. special operations forces execute daring raids yielding crucial evidence that unmasks Terror’s Sword and identifies his bioagent. Despite these discoveries, biomedical scientists urgently pursuing a cure conclude that the highly contagious engineered virus cannot be defeated, leaving the world to face an unprecedented pandemic threatening millions if the attack on America succeeds.
Global survival rests on McEwan’s shoulders as he battles sleeper cells embedded on U.S. soil and powerful factions inside his government who obstruct his search, increasing the likelihood of an attack on America. The terror mastermind is on the loose and determined to strike. The resolute McEwan vows to stop him. Who will prevail?
