With time running out to stop the nuclear destruction of Tel Aviv, Dewey Andreas must defeat his most fearsome opponent yet

Working in secret, away from the eyes of the international community, Iran has completed its first working nuclear device. With only one chance to cause maximum impact before the rest of the world awakens and begins to retaliate, the president of Iran decides to use this bomb to achieve a long-time goal: the destruction of Israel.

Dewey Andreas, a former SEAL and Delta, owes his life to Kohl Meir and his team of Israeli commandos. So when Meir shows him a photo of what appears to be a nuclear device with the words 'Goodbye Tel Aviv' written in F arsi on the side and requests his help, Dewey realizes that repaying his debt to Meir, his team and to I srael is going to take more than a simple 'thank you.'

With the help of leaked information from high-level officials inside of I ran and dissidents from groups outside the country, Meir and Andreas devise a high risk, high stakes plan that will allow them to find and hijack the device before it is deployed. But from their very first move, they catch the attention of the brilliant and brutally tough Abu Paria, the I ranian intelligence chief, who kidnaps and imprisons Meir. Now Dewey must face off against an opponent with equal cunning, skill, and determination while the one man who might be able to prevent the destruction of Israel's largest city is chained to the wall of an Iranian prison.
