Five hundred years from now, humankind has found a link to a remarkably Earth-like planet and settled there, dividing ?as humans will -- into dozens of nation-states. The Federated States of Columbia has consolidated power and risen against the oppression of Earth's corrupt Caliphate. But when Salafi madmen bent on a new jihad kill FSC Captain Patrick Hennessey's family in a cowardly attack, they create an enemy that will show even less mercy than they do. A legendary warrior is born: Carrera, the scourge of Salafism. He will forge an army from the decrepit remains of a military in a failing state. He will find those who killed his family. He will destroy them utterly. And he will try like hell to not becoming exactly like the enemy he is fighting. Only when he is finished will there be peace: the peace of an empty wind as it blows across a desert strewn with the bones of Carrera's enemies.

The author forgot a form of torture that even the most liberal world not object to; probably not even recognise as torture: porc (ham, sausage, herad chease, etc.) and shellfish including shrimp , crab, hoysters, etc. because the Islamic dietary laws forbid absolutely these itens. Plus all alcoholic beverages. These terrorists are ultraconservative Islamic fundamentalists. Diet would also work against untraconsertive fundamentalist Jewish terrorists.
