He was called to redeem a debt of honour . . .
Top-ranked sniper Kyle Swanson was a promising young Marine on a dangerous peace-keeping mission in Mogadishu, Somalia when he first captured a ruthless warlord known as 'the Cobra'. It could have cost Swanson his life - had it not been for the schoolteacher who risked her own to save him.
Now Swanson is sent on a mission to track down two targets: one is the Cobra, who spent twenty years imprisoned after Swanson captured him and is now back in charge of the Somali underworld, vowing vengeance on the Marine; the other is the grandson of the schoolteacher who once saved his life, who has joined the Cobra's army of terror.
The boy had been swept up in a Detroit-based Somali gang before fleeing back to the protection of the Cobra. His grandmother swears he's innocent, but the CIA tells Kyle to take him out. To find the truth and accomplish his mission, Swanson must return to the one place he had hoped he'd never see again - where the Cobra lies in wait.
