In desperation, they decide to “follow the money,” believing the terrorists may be supported from abroad by the Wahhabi Sunnis, a Muslim sect that establishes and maintains radical mosques and madrassas worldwide. Employing funds provided by the Saudi royal family, these mosques and schools preach jihad, a personal war to convert or kill the nonbelievers.

Homeland Security arranges Cody Sargent’s transfer from Wall Street to the Washington, DC brokerage office where Omar Walid, a cultural attaché to the Saudi embassy, maintains a number of charity accounts for the benefit Muslim immigrants in America. Charged with learning how and where the money is being disbursed, Cody soon finds himself the target of a Muslim assassin even as he tries to arrange the downfall of Omar Walid and the Islamic terrorists Omar has set loose on America.
