Brad Peterson is a highly trained Special Forces operative. With less than a month of military service left, he is looking forward to a bright future in the civilian sector. His last mission in Afghanistan goes horribly wrong, leaving him injured and his best friend dead. Back in the United States and recuperating from his injuries, he receives the astonishing news that he has inherited a multibillion-dollar fortune from a long-lost family member. Free at last from the army, he heads to Las Vegas with unlimited funds at his disposal. He immerses himself in gambling, alcohol and women in an effort to erase the guilt he feels over his best friend's death. Only after he finds himself in jail following a bar fight, does he see the light. Using his newfound wealth, he creates the Peterson Foundation. Aided by a deadly ex-Special Forces team, the foundation takes on an evil warlord in Africa as well as Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. With his life hanging in the balance, Brad seeks redemption in the war-torn Dark Continent.
