Former marine sniper Kyle Swanson confronts a defected enemy sniper, Juba, who is working with a fringe terrorist organization that has created a weapon of mass destruction recently used to kill hundreds at a British royal wedding.

McMillan Palgrave
In this follow-up to the highly successful Kill Zone, former Marine sniper Kyle Swanson faces his most deadly enemy yet, a legendary enemy sniper working with a fringe Islamic organization that has created a terrifying new weapon of mass destruction

In Baghdad’s Green Zone, an Iraqi scientist is murdered just before he is to reveal the monstrous secret that Saddam Hussein took to his grave: the Palace of Death, home to a chemical weapon that Islamic militants quietly have been developing and whose formula is nearly complete. The assassination is the work of a mysterious sniper called Juba, who was originally trained by the British but now works with a twisted mastermind determined to wrest leadership of the terrorist world from Al Qaeda.
Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps, has become the key member in a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Juba tests the new weapon by killing hundreds of people at a British royal wedding in London, Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special ops rival.
The birth of a new reign of global terror can be stopped only by a confrontation between the two best snipers in the world, a duel in which the first shot wins. Usually.

In Baghdad's Green Zone, an Iraqi scientist is murdered just before he can reveal the monstrous secret that Saddam Hussein took to his grave: the Palace of Death, home to a chemical weapon that Islamic militants have been quietly developing and whose formula is nearly complete. The assassination is the work of a mysterious sniper called Juba, who was originally trained by the British but now works with a twisted mastermind determined to wrest leadership of the terrorist world from al Qaeda. When Juba tests the new weapon at a British royal wedding in London, killing hundreds, Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is assigned to hunt down his old special-ops rival.
In Kill Zone, Swanson was left presumed dead. Once the Marine Corps's top sniper, he had been struck down in a chaotic firefight, declared killed in action, and all trace of his existence was scrubbed from military records. What only few know is that Swanson survived the bloody assault. He has since become the key member of an elite, ultrasecret military task force, operating below the radar and taking on the sort of missions others won't touch. Swanson must emerge from hiding to halt Juba in his tracks, before he can unleash further destruction.
The birth of a new reign of global terror can be stopped only by a confrontation between the two best snipers in the world, a duel in which the first shot wins - usually.

Fast paced action, couple of gaps in the plot line, but maybe I'm just picky! Overall a good read.
