About this item
In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Back man, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems Back man, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the worlds most sophisticated satellite surveillance system.
Back man is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy. Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese, and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back and watch. The question is not whether Back man will survivethere is no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, who will kill him?
