It is 2010 and North Korea is starving its people to pay for its newest high-tech weapons system. The rogue nation has invested all its resources into Peter Nampo, a talented scientist who is developing missile technology capable of eliminating its enemies’ satellites in space and delivering a nuclear payload into the heart of the United States.
Marine recon veteran and small-town prosecutor William Parker is recruited by a dark-ops taskforce run by the CIA and Pentagon. His mission? Infiltrate the Hermit Kingdom and find Nampo’s top-secret location.
As Parker trains for, then launches, his extraordinary operation, he knows his chances of survival are low. But he has no idea he’s about to become part of a mission much more dangerous than the one he set out on.

"I seldom come across a thriller as authentic and well-written as Retribution. Andy Harp brings his considerable military expertise to a global plot that's exciting, timely, and believable. His characters are exceptionally well-drawn and convincing. If you like Tom Clancy's work, you'll love Retribution. Andy Harp is very much his own man, however, and to say that I'm impressed is an understatement."
