Later, Jon Reznick’s own daughter lands in the center of the deadly game, which forces him to come out in open. But, he is not someone who would surrender so easily.

The team suspects that there is an Islamist terrorist group that has kidnapped the diplomat as he works in the Persian Gulf area. However, Reznick thinks that there is something else at play in this case. He suspects that a leading surgeon from Washington DC has something to do in this case. Probably, he is involved in the kidnapping. Soon, several attacks take place on the FBI team, which makes them realize that the diplomat’s abduction is just a small part of a bigger plot. And due to this, New York as well as the whole country has come under a great risk. Reznick needs to use his specialized skills and reach the roots of this conspiracy so as to prevent the nation from getting destroyed.

    I have just discovered your Jon Reznick books and am currently reading your first in this series. I note your favourite & influential authors (mine too) & note that whilst there is a similar genre & theme that is present in your work I’m impressed with not only your writing style but also the extensive research that you have done to make this book credible.
    I believe a side career in Geopolitics would be a good fit for you.
    Keep up the good work!
