We first met James Hicks in Sympathy for the Devil, which called to mind classics like The Day of the Jackal and The Hunt for Red October; entrusted with running The University, Hicks is one of the most powerful—and secretive—men alive. The University has been a clandestine organization since the days of the OSS. The University and its agents have always lived in the shadows; using its vast intelligence resources to help defeat the Nazis, end the Cold War and strike back at terrorists all over the globe.

Various intelligence agencies (both in the U.S. and abroad) are after the brilliant and vicious mastermind of the bio-terror plot, Bajjah, which nearly wiped out New York City if not for the heroics of James Hicks, one of the primary operatives of the clandestine intelligence agency known only as The University.

The CIA, NSA, DIA and the Mossad are all hunting for Bajjah, who seems to have completely disappeared off the face oft he earth. Hicks, however, believes that some unknown enemy might be holding Bajah, and he must track down this cold-blooded enemy while battling against other agencies that have their own motives to find this terrorist. Hicks has been around long enough to have a healthy distrust when it comes to other agencies properly handling Bajjah’s capture and interrogation, especially when Hicks learns that Bajjah works for the most wanted and most connected terrorist in the world— a man known as Jabbar. Hicks must use the University's resources to root out the network, while fighting against both domestic and international intelligence communities to get the job done.

But when Hicks discovers Bajjah’s network goes far deeper than anyone could have fathomed, he's in a race against time to stop a globe-wide atrocity from taking place before it's too late.
