THE THREAT: The Islamic ibn Allah (ISA), a newly formed terrorist organization is in the process of uniting all terrorist factions worldwide. Global by nature, the ISA’s area of operation is currently limited to Europe but plans are in the works to wreak terror internationally. Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization, Black September, The Islamic-jihad, Abu Nidal’s Black June are just some of the more radical groups but the ISA is the most hideous of them all. This new threat has split from Nidal’s Black June and other heretic terrorist groups. What makes it scary? They are organized and grow by the hour.
 
THE ANSWER: Nick Cutter, a lieutenant in the United States Navy with the warfare specialty of SEAL, is recruited by an elite counter-terrorist team, the Terrorist Neutralization/Hostage Extraction Squad (TNHES or Tennis Team). His new mission, eliminate the most important cell of the ISA. This squad is more covert than SEAL Team Six or Delta force; no records of their being exist. No paper or financial trails can lead anyone to the Tennis Team keeping their stealth capabilities intact. Lieutenant Cutter signs on under the conditions that the US Government will maintain complete deniability.
 
REASON: The Tennis Team abandons all civilized rules of engagement. Cutter and his men MEET TERRORISTS ON THEIR OWN TERMS, NEUTRALIZE ALL ISA MEMBERS ON THE SCENE, AND TAKE NO PRISONERS UNLESS OTHERWISE DIRECTED.

“There’s a new hero on the American literary scene, and his name is Cutter, Nick Cutter… one part Lloyd Bridges in ‘Sea Hunt,’ one part Harrison Ford in ‘Clear and Present Danger,’ a pinch of James Garner in ‘The Rockford Files,’ and a dash of author Randy Cruts.”
