Jake Adams is living the good life on the Italian coast, when he is summoned by an old friend to help with an international crisis. A group of terrorists has kidnapped a number of Christian relief workers, and they have disappeared somewhere off the coast of Morocco. Reluctantly, Jake takes on the case. So now Jake must assemble a team of people he can trust from his past to find and free these captured medical professionals.

Jake's mission brings him from the Iberian Peninsula to the Atlas Mountains of North Africa, where he must fight forces of a spreading Caliphate. Has Jake finally found a mountain too hard to climb?
