The former war correspondent has been kidnapped and tortured - twice. Finally he's living something that resembles a normal life. But all that changes when a terrorist murders a woman in front of Bailey in London. The mastermind behind the attack is Mustafa al-Baghdadi - No.1 on the FBI's most wanted list - and the man who tortured Bailey in Fallujah a decade ago. Mustafa has a deadly axe to grind with Bailey. He taunts him with threats of more attacks in other cities, closer to home. Back in Sydney, the people who matter most to Bailey have become targets. Bailey turns to the only man who can help - ruthless CIA veteran Ronnie Johnson - to bring down the world's most deadly terrorist.
