Book description
S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage and Logistics Directorate. An organization dedicated to the preservation of life and liberty, and the eradication of terrorism around the globe. Based in a flying mobile headquarters called the Helicarrier, the members of this international law enforcement agency are always prepared to avenge the innocent and punish the guilty.

Leading the charge is S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury--a man who has seen more than his fair share of war from the darkest days of World War II to the present, and who has fought time and again to foil the sinister plans of the world's most sinister madmen.

A series of unexplained plane crashes--including one that nearly claims Fury's life--leads the toughened director to what he thinks is a new plot being hatched by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s longtime enemy Hydra.

But when an Empire Airlines flight goes missing, the real enemy behind the attacks is revealed--an enemy more dangerous than anything S.H.I.E.L.D. has confronted before. And now Fury and his deadliest foes must set aside their differences to prevent armageddon!

Now Fury must learn to work with his greatest enemies in order to halt the deadly threat...
