As U.S. combat strength dwindles after the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, the government finds it necessary to hire civilian defense contracting companies to fill in the thin lines. Hercules International is one such company. Headquartered in Roswell, New Mexico, Hercules has one mission: to eliminate terrorism. Led by General John Ellis, a distinguished and decorated Army veteran, this defense contracting company recruits a select group of engineers, scientists and military personnel to complete their covert operations through the use of unconventional warfare. Terrorists are quickly unsettled by the success of the methods employed by this unique company. A politically sensitive mission, 'Operation Talon', is set in motion, bringing Hercules to Al Qaeda’s very front door and a conclusion to an interminable manhunt.
