Now in a premium edition, the explosive international thriller featuring Navy SEAL turned Homeland Security operative Scot Harvath, who somewhere, somehow, has left the wrong person alive.

When the president of the United States is blackmailed into releasing five detainees from Guantanamo Bay, a sadistic assassin with a vendetta years in the making is reactivated. Suddenly, the people closest to counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath are being targeted and he realizes that somehow, somewhere he has left the wrong person alive. With his life plunged into absolute peril, and the president ordering him to stay out of the investigation, Harvath must mount his own covert plan for revenge--and in so doing will uncover shattering revelations about the organizations and the nation he has spent his life serving.

"U.S. president Jack Rutledge has violated the first commandment of war: he has negotiated with terrorists. One of the Guantanamo detainees released in this negotiation is now systematically attacking series hero Scot Harvath's friends and family. Though Scot doesn't know why they're being attacked, and his president has forbidden him to retaliate, he can't sit idly by while his loved ones are decimated. His global search for truth makes for a "violent, shoot-'em-up pulse pounder" (Publishers Weekly) that will have you finishing The First Commandment and reaching for the next in the series, The Last Patriot (6th & 7th, respectively, in a series that now numbers 11 - Black List was published earlier this year)."
