When a raid on an Iraqi terrorist nest uncovers a list of American targets, the Specialists need answers fast. Is the list real? Which targets will be threatened first? And who's the mastermind behind it all? The Specialists have three chief suspects: the notorious Osama Bin Laden, the Iranian Abdel Salim - known as the "Muslim Assassin", and a shadowy figure who calls himself "The Scimitar" -- all masters of disquise whose exploits have brought destruction and death to untold innocents. Now the Specialists must stop the most ambitious act of terror yet: the theft of a nuclear bomb and its detonation somewhere within the United States. The Specialists' one slim hope lies in identifying a double-crossing terrorist who plans to sell renegade nukes to the highest bidder -- or the world will face its first act of nuclear terror...and a new reign of bloodshed impossible to stop.
