Low-level CIA financial analyst Jack Ryan comes to believe that $9 million of unusual financial transactions are connected to a new Yemeni terrorist named Suleiman. Jack meets medical doctor Cathy Mueller at a social function before he is collected by helicopter and then taken via a plane to Yemen by James Greer, his new boss in the Terror, Finance, and Arms Division (T-FAD) of the CIA. The man seemingly responsible for the payments and his assumed bodyguard are being interrogated when the American base is attacked by rebels/militia. The attackers then rescue the bodyguard, who an injured Jack then realises is Suleiman.
Cathy Mueller is an eye surgeon in the novels.
