"U.S. president Jack Rutledge has violated the first commandment of war: he has negotiated with terrorists. One of the Guantanamo detainees released in this negotiation is now systematically attacking series hero Scot Harvath's friends and family. Though Scot doesn't know why they're being attacked, and his president has forbidden him to retaliate, he can't sit idly by while his loved ones are decimated. His global search for truth makes for a "violent, shoot-'em-up pulse pounder" (Publishers Weekly) that will have you finishing The First Commandment and reaching for the next in the series, The Last Patriot (6th & 7th, respectively, in a series that now numbers 11 - Black List was published earlier this year)."
