A secret wing of US Homeland Security is recruiting agents to work undercover in the Middle East, and the director wants his second-in-command, Matt Egan, to bring aboard an old friend. Salam Al Fayed - "Fade - is perfect. An ex-Navy Seal, he is the son of immigrants and speaks Arabic like a native. But Fade's retired. Embittered and alone, he's not too fond of anyone in the government. Least of all his ex-best friend, Matt Egan. Against Egan's wishes, the director tries to persuade Fade to join the team. But Fade, angry and hopeless, is prepared to fight back at any cost. The chase is on : will Matt be able to find his friend-turned-fugitive before Fade can take the ultimate revenge?
