THE DEFIANT HERO

Author(s): 

When Navy SEAL John Nilsson receives a call telling him that former Kazbekistan Embassy translator Meg Moore has taken the Kazbekistan Ambassador hostage and is refusing to negotiate with anyone other than John, he thinks the world has gone nuts. Why on earth would Meg take people hostage in the D.C Embassy? Certain that there is more going on than meets the eye, John agrees to see Meg.

Once inside the Embassy, Meg secretly communicates to John that something is terribly wrong. Both Megs 10-year-old daughter Amy and her grandmother Eve have been kidnapped by a Kazbekistan extremist organization. They want Meg to find and kill rival leader Osman Razeem.

John and his SEAL team are ready to help in any way they can, but Meg is not being completely honest. For Meg knows that she is both willing to kill and die to save her child, no matter what the government prefers.
