But this mission has a special meaning for Blake his ex-wife, whom he still loved dearly, has been murdered, and he wants revenge.

Blake and his buddies, including a host of top-notch Brits and crafty Mossad agents, perform their derring-do with unequivocal elan, facing danger and even death with the bravado of the best.
