A surprise attack on the U.S. embassy in Kuwait threatens to tear the country apart—just as its perpetrator knew it would. Tensions between the Shi’ite and Sunni populations rise to record highs as the public rushes to place blame, and the threat of a second Arab spring looms dark on the horizon. If that were to happen, its ramifications would be felt across the entire Middle Eastern region and—ultimately—the world.
Undercover CIA Agent Steve Connors jumps into action. Rooting out the person or entity responsible is the only way to restore peace, but the process is slow going. Whoever did this is a professional, and highly adept in the art of covering their tracks.
As more bombings pepper the city, anti-Shi'ite and anti-government protests erupt in the streets. Riot police open fire on the civilian crowds. The death toll rises by the day, and every passing moment is another opportunity for the terrorists to attack. Tick. Tock.
Can Steve Connors diffuse the situation before it's too late?
