November, 1943. Hitler sanctions his boldest mission yet – to kill President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill as they visit Cairo for a secret conference to plan the Allied invasion of Europe. Only one man is capable of leading the mission: Major Johann Halder, one of the Abwehr’s most brilliant agents, a man with a tortured soul and a talent for the impossible. Accompanied by an undercover team and young Egyptologist Rachel Stern, Halder must race against time across the hostile desert to reach Cairo and successfully carry out the assignment – or forfeit his own life and that of his young son. When U.S. military intelligence learn of the plot, Lt. Colonel Harry Weaver is assigned to hunt down and eliminate Halder and his time. But for Weaver, there’s more than the balance of the war and the Allied leaders at stake.
