U.S. Marine Colonel David Saxon has finished five months of bureaucratic hell at the Pentagon. The confines of his office had turned Saxon into a pent-up, caged beast, until he got what he wanted?a mission back to the danger zone?

Marine Colonel David Saxon’s ?Big Mean One” Special Ops team is being airlifted to extract hostages seized onboard an ocean liner by the infamous terrorist, Carlos Evangelista. It’s a daring mid-sea rescue, one certain to cause heavy casualties. But the ?Evangelist” has more in mind than slaughtering innocent civilians. A neo-Soviet plot plans to kill Libya’s Kaddafi?so that a new Libyan strongman will welcome placement of Soviet missiles for a nuclear strike against the U.S. Sixth Fleet, on maneuvers in the Gulf of Sidara. To the neo-Soviet leadership and the ?Evangelist,” it’s just the first round in a world-dominating game of nuclear brinkmanship. But to Saxon’s team, it’s the last round of a game with only once acceptable outcome?the obliteration of America’s enemies?
