After decades of work, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Ibrahim Hamedi, has taken Iran to the threshold of its dream - a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile. Mossad must eliminate the man, but all of their assassination attempts end in failure. They have only one option: bring back David Slaton, once Israel's most lethal assassin. Slaton has vowed to never kill again. He has a good life, with a new wife and a house in the Virginia suburbs. When his wife is attacked and forced to flee across Europe, events force Slaton's hand. Dr. Hamedi may be one of the most closely guarded men on earth, but he is David Slaton's next target . . . and Slaton does not fail.
