DESCRIPTION FICTION / MILITARY
ISIS Khorasan has seized control of several key provinces in Afghanistan and crowned a new emir. The new regime is poised to wrestle control of the nation from the NATO-established government and is more brutal and deadly than the Taliban and Al-Qaeda had ever been. A covert intelligence gathering unit has infiltrated the landscape and cultivated a network of spies from within Khorasan’s network.
Damien Collins, who struggles with severe anxiety, a troubled marriage, and a custody dispute over his five-year-old daughter, is a member of this elite intelligence-gathering team trying to stop the spread of ISIS and its emergence in the hotbed of Afghanistan. Damien’s team has confidants within ISIS-Khorasan that could turn the tide of the struggle. While Damien’s team rushes to solidify their victories, he has to juggle his own chaos at home.
Meanwhile ISIS looks to enact massive brutality over the Afghan government and its American overlords. As the body count rises, Damien and his team are in a race to find the emir and end his new reign of terror. Little do the Afghans know that the team, select members of Joint Special Operations command, and other shadowy units are operating covertly in their neighborhoods, trying to stop ISIS Khorasan’s influence from spreading like wildfire into Kabul and the northern provinces.
Failed State takes readers from the domesticity of the United States and the chaos of Afghanistan to the glamor of Dubai and the terrorist networks of Turkey and Germany. Readers will bond with Damien and his colleagues and feel the full impact of America’s war on terror, both at home and abroad, with every page.
