Two enemies join forces to rescue a mutual friend kidnapped in Afghanistan, but it seems the US military doesn't want them to succeed.
Australian assassin, Stonefish, and his squad of ex-military officers discover that their best client is missing. Billionaire, Saul Madison, a man not afraid of fixing the world's problems by surgical means, is held hostage in Afghanistan. While he is driven slowly insane awaiting execution by the Taliban, only Stonefish's deadliest enemy can help him mount a rescue.
Strange allies turn out to have even stranger opponents, including the US military as well as the terrorists. Someone important clearly doesn't want Madison to survive, and the rescue attempt rapidly disintegrates into a suicide mission.
