When terrorists assault Saint Agnes Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, they expect to find a congregation of lambs: they get Bobby Kurtz, instead. An unrepentant Cold Warrior, Kurtz destroys the terror cell with violent finality.
Against his will, Kurtz is pulled back into the life he left behind decades before. He reluctantly picks up the burden of hunting the terrorists in our midst. He risks his life, and his marriage, in a single-minded pursuit of victory over evil.
Working with a shadowy government agency, Kurtz uses all of his skills and experience to foil a plan that would plunge the Twin Cities back into the Stone Age. The final battle rages across the plains during a Christmas Eve blizzard in a story that will leave the reader pleading for more of Kurtz and his team of experts.
