The Levine Affair:

Horrifying news reports from Nigeria about Boko Haram's slaughter of Christian villagers have stunned the world. A barbaric gang of thugs has kidnapped hundreds of schoolgirls. They have slaughtered young boys and men and have burned countless worshippers alive in their churches. They've raped and forcibly married Christian women to Muslim men.

And now....

  • An American missionary is kidnapped in by Boko Haram
  • A young Nigerian mother is sentenced to death by stoning
  • A Texas oilman has disappeared in Nigeria's oil-rich delta.

No government in the world will touch these politically charged cases.

Only an Israeli billionaire's private commando unit offers hope for them, and for two desperate Americans who are in grave danger.

Can David Levine's courageous warriors save them all?
