"German Tornados, you are ordered to accompany us to Ellington Field, over." Krieger didn't reply. The F-16s were now only 15 miles away. His crews knew what to do, and continuing on course, they streaked south towards their targets. Meanwhile, he and Konrad turned to fight. General Wang, head of the PLA's Intelligence Directorate, dreams of becoming China's new Emperor. Ruthless, sadistic, and brilliant, he intends to rule the world by defeating an unsuspecting America in a new kind of war. When soaring oil prices threaten China's survival, Wang orders the first strike. As he does, his 6-10 Office agents capture the beautiful Falun Gong coed, Song Lizhen. Within hours, he tortures the terrified, yet fiercely defiant, young dissident. In Washington, D.C., Treasury agent Patrick Brennan vows to redeem himself as the interim head of OIA. But when America suffers a withering nuclear attack, he suddenly confronts a treacherous dilemma-to either hunt down al-Qaeda, or go rogue and fight the real mastermind. Mustering a loyal cadre of financial wizards, he races to thwart Wang's insidious plot and its final deathblow. As America's time runs out, Song Lizhen faces a terrible choice, and all fates converge in The Shenfeng Conjunction's electrifying climax.
