"Eric Steele and author Sean Parnell are the real deal."— Lee Child

Special operative Eric Steele, introduced in Man of War, is on the hunt for a formidable Russian terrorist in this high-intensity tale of international intrigue from the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Outlaw Platoon.

Badly injured while stopping a rogue agent from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, elite warrior Eric Steele is drawn back into service before he's ready when unknown assailants break into his home near Pittsburgh, injuring his mother and stealing his father's pistol.

An Alpha—an elite soldier under the direct command of the president of the United States—Steele is hell-bent on finding the attackers and bringing them to justice. While tracking his foe, Steele discovers he's become entangled in a far more sinister plan that's already been set in motion.

A terrorist named Zakayev, once locked away in a maximum-security prison in Russia, has escaped and joined forces with Hassan Sitta, a man who's shown his prowess and ingenuity with a spectacular bomb planted somewhere in the Middle East that hasn't been ignited—and no one can find. But that is only the beginning of a horrifying plan that, if it succeeds, will shatter international alliances and bring the world to the brink of war.

Now, the hunted must turn the tables on the hunter—Steele must find a way to stay alive and stop Zakayev before innocent lives are lost.

    Early in bestseller Parnell’s rousing second Eric Steele novel (after 2018’s Man of War), Steele, a clandestine operative in a secret U.S. unit known as the Program, has dinner with his widowed mother, Susan, at his home near Pittsburgh, Pa. After dinner, an RPG hits the front gate of the fortified house. Two teams of assailants get through the breach made by the rocket blast. Steele and Susan manage to escape, but in the ensuing chase his mother is badly hurt. Steele resolves to go after the perpetrators with a vengeance. Meanwhile, Gabriel, a rogue Saudi, has sprung Aleksandr Zakayev from Russia’s infamous Black Dolphin prison and tasked him with getting a friend of his, terrorist Hassan Sitta, out of an American black site prison ship known as Cold Storage. As Steele pursues his attackers, he gets involved in the effort to identify the target of Gabriel’s plot that requires Sitta. Not all the investigative work makes sense, but the vivid, unrelenting action scenes more than compensate. A lingering mystery will leave readers eager for Steele’s next adventure. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group.

    An elite American soldier who is out for vengeance uncovers a menacing terrorist plot. Retired U.S. Army captain and combat veteran Parnell (Man of War, 2018) delivers the second installment of the adventures of special operative Eric Steele. On the mend from a showdown with a rogue agent, Steele is preparing for a quiet dinner at home with his mother. The wine is quickly forgotten and the steaks start burning when Russian assailants bring the war to his doorstep. Using RPGs, C-4 explosives, and a SAW machine gun, the Russians are after a mysterious package sent from someone deeply connected to Steele's past. Steele narrowly escapes the attack with his life, but his mother ends up in intensive care. Shoulders heavy with guilt, Steele must use his connections and skills as an Alpha--an elite operator who answers only to the president--to find those responsible for the attack. Pumped up with prescription steroids and with his "keeper" and close friend, Demo, at his side, he takes off for Europe to follow the only clue offered by a former president, who cryptically refers to some off-the-books operation called Cold Storage. The mission becomes increasingly complex, dangerous, and engaging once Steele learns that the attack on his home is tied to assassination plans for some of the world's most prominent leaders. A well-written and well-researched page-turner.

  • Booklist (starred review) "A fast-paced, all-out action-fest... Steele is the kind of adventure hero whom everyone will want to see succeed, and here he's up against antagonists who define sheer villainy... Parnell has jumped to the top of the military-thriller class, right up there with Brad Thor and Vince Flynn."
  • Kirkus Reviews "The mission becomes increasingly complex, dangerous, and engaging once Steele learns that the attack on his home is tied to assassination plans for some of the world's most prominent leaders... A well-written and well-researched page-turner."
  • RealBookSpy "Sean Parnell continues to impress with his second novel, a timely action thriller that brings the pain in a big way... Readers will enjoy following Eric Steele as he goes to work killing bad guys and trying to save the world."
  • Lima Charlie "There is never any lack of action, and putting this thriller down is a tall order."
  • Publishers Weekly "[A] rousing novel... [with] vivid, unrelenting action scenes... A lingering mystery will leave readers eager for Steele's next adventure."
