Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Barely into his twenties and already a highly decorated military hero, Army Special Forces veteran Blake Kershaw is now going to college, studying while recuperating from wounds received in Afghanistan, and planning to re-enter the Army as an officer after graduation. But life tosses Blake a curve when his country approaches him about using his special skills to avert a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in a major eastern U.S. city. To do that, he would need to become an operative deep within Al-Qaeda's innermost circles--changing his entire identity, even his face. A true patriot, Blake makes the journey into a shadow world that leaves friends, family and, seemingly, even God far behind. But when things go terribly wrong, and his country looks set to destroy him, it is God and God's people who intervene.

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-15)

Blake Kershaw is going to school to earn his degree while he recovers from wounds he received while serving in Afghanistan. But his college career is cut short when the army asks him to go deep undercover within al-Qaeda to avert a plot to bomb a U.S. city. The young Blake accepts the mission, changing even his physical appearance in order to infiltrate the terrorist organization.

Verdict: Boykin brings his notably fundamental belief system to the forefront in his fiction debut, setting the war on terror in a Christian framework. His notoriety as the former U.S. Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and the media controversy he stirred with remarks about the war on terror will attract readers who may not usually read in this genre. Be sure to note the fundamentalist nature of the writing to potential readers when recommending this title, which, despite the heavy-handed message, is a suspenseful page-turner.

To do that, he would need to become an operative deep within Al-Qaeda’s innermost circles—changing his entire identity, even his face.

A true patriot, Blake makes the journey into a shadow world that leaves friends, family and, seemingly, even God far behind. But when things go terribly wrong, and his country looks set to destroy him, it is God and God’s people who intervene.
