David Andrews, the United States President, has convinced his most trusted friend to personally convey his new Middle East strategy to the region’s established power brokers with the view to end the Sunni-Shia sectarian struggle before all-out war breaks out…a war that could change the face of the earth as we know it.

Once again, Cole Palmer is thrust back into the life he had tried desperately to leave behind. Faced with the improbable task of selling Andrews’s new Middle East strategy…a strategy that makes it clear that the United States will no longer support any form of sectarian wars in the Middle East...Palmer must find a way to gain understanding and support. The world agrees that the fighting must stop…if he can only figure out how.

As Palmer navigates the crossfire of politics and power from one Middle East capital to another, ISIS forces seize the opportunity to turn up the tension by capturing more land both in Syria and Iraq with indiscriminate killing and pillage to force UN recognition and eventual sovereignty. The situation explodes when the Syrian President is killed and the Damascus government crumbles in a horrific bloodbath followed by an appalling revolution of death and savage atrocity in the streets of Baghdad.

This is Scot McCauley’s most shocking story…and closer to reality than any government would care to admit.
