===About this Book=== Secluded in a remote corner of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, behind rows of razor wire and heavily armed guards, lies the headquarters of the nation's most elite counter-terrorism unit: the United States Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. It is here in which a brilliant new approach to combating terrorism has just been born, codenamed: The Athena Project. The novels will follow an elite team of female warriors from their recruitment as top-level athletes, through their training, to their deployment on some of the most exciting and dangerous international assignments the fiction world has ever seen. Brad Thor's readers will be electrified as he employs his vast knowledge of covert operations and military intrigue to bring to life his most heart-pounding, globe-trotting thrillers yet. Each mission has a purpose in the War on Terrorism. One false move and the agents may not make it home alive, or even worse, the deaths of countless innocents.
