"The hunter become the hunted" is only a cliché when it applies to someone else...

After more than a year of hunting the terrorist mastermind who blew up Navy Pier in Chicago, Aeron Callahan is closing in on the man who can lead him to Mohammed Saif al-Din--and vindication. It's a simple plan...until it all goes to hell.

Callahan is a Ghost in the CIA's full-black special operations unit called "The Ghost Section."  A unit of 21st Century warriors recruited from the No Man's Land of the de facto war between America's Aristocracy and Proletariat, unintentionally bred by society with all the skills required for any covert operative.  They're honed into devastatingly effective weapons and unleashed upon America's enemies with little oversight.  Callahan's the oldest, and best, Ghost in the Section, and not everyone is a fan. After narrowly surviving an ambush in Hebron, Israel, he discovers that a group of very powerful interests inside the Beltway want him dead. The cabal has spared no expense, hiring a team of elite former IRA soldiers to kill him.

But Callahan has other problems to deal with--Mohammed Saif al-Din is operational again and his next plot could destroy the US economy for months, if not years to come, sending an economic tsunami around the world. While trying to avoid the team of Irish assassins, he races to stop the attack, and close the book on the only operational failure of his career.

As time goes on, however, a startling revelation surfaces about the effects of his job on his health.  A revelation that threatens everything he holds dear, including his relationship with the love of his life, fellow Ghost Samantha Clarke.  He suddenly finds himself forced to make the most consequential decision of his career: walk away from his quest for redemption and live the normal life he's wanted for so many years while risking another attack in the process, or relentlessly hunt Saif to the ends of the Earth and run the risk that "Terminal Darkness" will take everything from him, including his life...
