When you think Valentine, you think soft, sweet, and cuddly. Jack Valentine may have some of those elements, but he has a thirst for revenge and justice that lands him before a judge who gives he a choice, go to jail or enlist in the marines. He could be a poster boy for the marines. Loyal, relentless, physically fit, and an expert shooter, he becomes a sniper that must kill so that others may live. His newest assignment finds him back in the Middle East tracking down al-Qaida terrorist. His childhood sweetheart, FBI agent, Liberty is threatened and Jack is missing in action. This is a story of faith, misguided trust, treason, and redemption. Author Henderson does a fine job describing the complexity of terrorism, fanatics, and the thin line between living one’s beliefs and using other’s belief for selfish reasons.

"From the author of Marine Sniper--the classic true account of Sergeant Carlos Hathcock--comes a gripping and gritty new novel about a sniper on the trail of al-Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in post-9/11 Iraq... At age twenty, Marine Scout-Sniper Jack Valentine had his first kill in Iraq at the start of the Persian Gulf War. Now, it's 2006, and he's back in Baghdad, obsessed with taking down al-Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Jack missed his first shot at Zarqawi, and it's haunted him ever since--even though the attack struck fear into the black hearts of the jihadists and earned him the name the Ghost of Al-Anbar. Now leading his own special forces platoon, Jack is determined to hunt down and take out his target this time. But the jihadists are not his only enemies. The ruthless amoral leader of a band of mercenaries is feeding al-Qaeda secret information--and also pursuing the love of Jack's life, FBI agent Liberty Cruz. Jack may soon find himself in the crosshairs if he doesn't eliminate his rival first..."--… (more)
