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.

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.
