Description

“[I] instantly fell in love with these characters…Unlike other high-testosterone action-adventure series, the authors dedicated time and effort to tell a realistic story about Vietnam veterans. I just can’t say enough good things about this opening installment.” Paperback Warrior on Deadly Reunion

The Black Berets are the world’s best hope …

India is a country divided, torn by religious strife and hounded by potential invaders on all sides. The world’s most powerful governments believe that whoever controls India holds the strategic advantage for global domination. As the chaos spins out of control, a name resurfaces after centuries of obscurity: Akbar.

Once a religious zealot who created his own dominant religion in the region, Akbar has returned, if not in body, then at least in spirit. Beeker, the leader of the fearsome Black Berets, wants nothing to do with a tangle of religious fanatics—until he learns they’ve stolen two atomic bombs they intend to use in their new holy war. Suddenly the mission’s far-reaching, devastating implications become impossible to ignore.
