Summary

Summary

The eighth page-turning thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Power Plays series.

When an anonymous E-mail alerts UpLink International's operatives to suspicious activity on an exclusive island resort, Pete Nimec goes undercover to investigate.

Located off the coast of Trinidad, Rayos del Sol is not just a playground for the world's richest and most powerful people--it's also the headquarters for a joint fiber-optic--oil refinery project run by UpLink and Sedco Oil. What Nimec discovers is a plot to drain oil from the United States' Strategic Petroleum Reserve and sell it to outlaw nations. And when the island's highly trained security force is sent to take Nimec out, heaven on earth erupts into hell.
