After a series of risky black ops missions, Steve is looking forward to a straightforward intelligence assignment in beautiful Israel. What he finds is a conspiracy that will rock the Middle East and the world. He also finds Neena Shahud, an attractive Mossad agent waging a personal vendetta against Hezbollah. First Steve must save Neena's life, then he must figure out why the Middle East is about to explode and stop it. But, by the time Steve and Neena put the pieces in place, it may be too late. If Masada, an historic fortress, the object of an oath taken by the Israel's elite soldiers, and a symbol of Jewish freedom is not to fall to enemies a second time, what will be the price? Who will pay it?
