THE DRUG WAR
is about to become
A REAL WAR.
Chris Teller may be the best in the intelligence business, but that doesn't mean he's the most popular. Far from it, in fact. While he may be a threat to the status quo, however, the only thing saving him from expulsion is an even greater threat to his country, one that's already within our borders.
With Mexico descending into anarchy, the drug cartels have kicked up the heat, allying with Hezbollah and the Iranian secret service in a plot aimed at nothing less than the destruction of the United States of America. As Teller races to unravel the plot, he discovers that the most dangerous and pernicious enemies are not bloodthirsty drug lords, but a terrifying and treasonous cabal within the U.S. government itself.
Former military intelligence officer Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer made headlines when his memoir, Operation Dark Heart, faced Department of Defense censorship. Now he returns with The Last Line, an eye-opening thriller rooted in the shadow world of espionage, government power, and betrayal.
An overly complicated plot mars this action thriller from Shaffer, author of the memoir Operation Dark Heart, and Keith . Saeed Reyshahri, an officer in Iran's state security service, slips into the U.S. through Mexico, tasked with implementing a complex operation to bring in two suitcase nukes to be set off in New York and Washington, D.C. The resulting destruction will be blamed on al-Qaeda, but behind the plot is a secret organization of U.S. government and business traitors led by Randolph Edgar Preston, the president's assistant for national security affairs. Their ultimate goal is to establish a Latino country known as Aztl n in the American Southwest. Standing almost alone against the bad guys is Capt. Chris Teller, a case officer in the Department of Defense. Shaffer's 25 years as an intelligence officer show in such details as the bleeding-edge spy gear, but even the characters hatching this outlandish scheme have trouble believing it.
