After the break-up of the Soviet Union, some of the most hardened and capable criminals came to the United States. Over the past two decades, they have created a vicious and fearless underworld, breathtaking in its violence, disturbing in its efficiency, and destructive to society at large. With conventional law enforcement methods unable to stem the tide, the President issues top secret Executive Order 12-4b3 creating a small, deadly team to take on this fight behind the scenes--a kill team. The head of the CIA's Special Operations Group, Billy Cosgrove, is picked to head this group and he, in turn, asks Rob Tacoma to be his deputy. Rob Tacoma--former Navy SEAL and former CIA agent--has a special reason to agree. Tacoma was raised by his grandparents after his own parents were killed by the Russian mafia. But before Tacoma can even start, Billy Cosgrove is found murdered in his own home, as a warning from the Russian mafia itself. Now Tacoma is in charge of the team and they have their first mission, to achieve the near impossible: find and neutralize the mob boss behind Billy Cosgrove's death. To do so means taking on practically an army in a battle where there are no rules and no limits.

From Library Staff

Former Navy SEAL Rob Tacoma is sent on a dangerous mission to find and kill a hidden Russian mob boss rapidly taking over the criminal underworld of the United States. The message he is sending is quite clear: the opposition will be met with overwhelming deadly force.
