Publisher's Description

Two Dangerous Missions Collide with Explosive Results

A suicide bomber blows up a hotel in Beirut, killing hundreds of people. A young American woman is kidnapped in Lebanon by terrorists. Connected or coincidence? Despite the government’s difficulty in locating her sister, Liz Fairchild, a reporter from the States, is determined to find her…regardless of the risks. Meanwhile, Sergeant John Cooper and his elite Special Ops team hunt down Palestinian extremists in possession of a new undetectable explosive that will change the "face of terror." When Liz and Task Force Valor’s paths intersect, more is at risk than their separate missions. While maneuvering through hostile territory, Liz and John realize they need each other to survive. Their antagonism gradually gives way to cooperation—and something more.

Task Force Valor

Explosive Ordnance Disposal—The Bomb Squad

As the global war on terror heats up, the U.S. needs a team of highly trained special operators to deploy overseas to locate and neutralize threats, bringing EOD expertise to the dirty, deadly missions that have no room for error. For the men of Task Force Valor—life is a blast.

A lethal new weapon.

Master Sergeant John Cooper and his Special Ops team of explosives-hunters have a mission unlike any they’ve ever experienced before. A new undetectable type of explosive has burst onto the scene, and it will change the "face of terror" in the world. Washington wants the manufacturers shut down before it turns up on American soil.

A missing sister.

A suicide bomber blows up a hotel in Beirut. Liz Fairchild, an American reporter, searches for her sister, Julie, who is presumed dead in the blast…until Liz uncovers evidence she might be alive. When signs indicate that time is running out for Julie, Liz is determined to find her—regardless of the risks.

A stealthy escape.

As their separate objectives bring John and Liz together, the path ahead takes twists neither of them counted on. Although God works in all things for the good of those who love Him, God’s definition of good might not match theirs. When the mission goes south and politics intrude on their plans, the team must rely on their wits—and guts—to survive. Can they make it…with a wounded team member and a female civilian in tow?

Story Behind the Book

"I met Chuck Holton a few years ago when he took my fiction classes at the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. I enjoyed him because my life experience is so different from his. When it was time to develop a new fiction series, I thought it would be fun to combine his military background with my civilian background and write a series right out of today’s headlines. He has basically written the male points of view, and I’ve done the female. Very challenging and great fun!"

—Gayle Roper

    this is definitely action-packed and a nail-biter but very sensitive to the realities of terrorism and how we can respond to this as a Christian. I really enjoyed this book.

    For awhile now my sister has hounded me to read this series, said I would love it. Turns out I did! I only have read the first book but I loved it SO much. Anyone who asks I'll say this is a must read book. I can't wait to read the 2nd and 3rd books. "Allah's Fire" kept me on the edge of my couch the whole time. And as the book went on the more interesting it was, there was more action, more humor, and just more John and Liz! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was almost like a movie for me. The writers displayed the planning, the bombings, the terrorists, the army guys so well. Keep them coming!

    If you're looking for action packed military books this is about as good as it gets. It is an exciting story filled with action and humorous and likeable main characters. Of course, there is a dark side to the story. It shows a little into the muslim mind and the shameful way they treat their women. Liz Fairchild is in Beruit to write a story on these women when her sister is kidnapped during a hotel bombing. this powerful new fire bomb is what brings Task Force Valor in from the states where they have been mourning a fallen friend. Liz is determined to find her sister, John Cooper, the distributors of the hily volatile new bomb. The two's missions collide and they must work together to accomplish their missions and get out of the country safely before they are captured. Great read. Buckle your seat belt. It's quite a ride.

    Very truthful in its depiction of what that area is like in Lebanon.Keeps a person's interest up and helps to understand the mind-set of Islamic radicals. Find it more non-fiction than fiction.Jan Robbins

    Great read. This book sat in my book stash for months and I didn't pick it up. When I did start reading it, I couldn't put it down. I like suspense, military drama and light romance. I disagree that it was mushy. I am hoping the two authors develop the characters of the rest of the team. I also truly makes you appreciate our military. This book is NOT far-fetched. I looking forward to reading more in the series.
