The USS Vicksburg is returning home when the crew comes upon a lifeboat bearing a dead Somali pirate who shows signs of torture. Questions immediately arise: Who is this man, and which ship did he come from? Who tortured him? Soon Red Cell analysts Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke have traced the dead man back to an Iranian ship currently bound for Venezuela - and the ship appears to have dangerous, radioactive cargo on board.

On a par with his previous offering sends his heroine back to Venezuela and things do get a bit far out in the brinksmanship area. The author does illuminate a very real problem for spies, the Executive branch is every much the enemy as the opposition. How would you like to depend on the current administration for anything? Only thing worse is the Secret Service, they have to take a bullet for POTUS-when will they ever learn-when will they ever learn!

Good follow up to Red Cell. This book is a fast read. Henshaw leaves open for a third book.
