At a place known as . . .
Oliver Stone once the countrys most skilled assassin stands in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though hes fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.
But Stones mission changes drastically before it even begins. Its the night of a state dinner honouring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime ministers motorcade leave the White House, a bomb is detonated in an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. Its in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.
Stones opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal. Worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.
