The men of Force 5 Recon have been given a new mission—and it's taking them to the Philippines. A Muslim extremist organization, Abu Sayyaf, has been using kidnappings and terrorist techniques to make their political goals known on a world stage. Mac Rainey and his team of elite Marin operators is assigned to assist and advise Fillipino Marines in how to combat terrorists.But everything goes horribly wrong when the Marines walk into an ambush, and half of the men of Force 5 are captured by terrorists. Rainey escapes, but knows that he only has a small window of time to save his men before the terrorists make an example of them. But to save his men, Rainey will have to enlist the help of a CIA agent he can't completely trust. He knows that attempting a rescue his men alone would be suicide, but to place his faith in the intelligence operative might lead him down the same road.
