On the eve of a presidential election, an act of domestic terrorism has a young boy held hostage before the eyes of the nation. As a nationwide investigation into the boy's whereabouts is mobilized, military brass asks Wolverine if he can become involved as well, as there's no better tracker and no better person to try and get things solved quickly, especially with election day less than a week away...

This story is a little different from the other books, in that it jumps around to the points of view of a few other character as it goes along, but it primarily remains focused on Wolverine and the actions he takes to discover what has happened to what appears to be a random kidnapped child, but whose disappearance at the time of the next presidential election has thrown the country into turmoil. Its up to Logan and a new ally to find the missing boy in time to keep the country from giving into fear, anger, and turning on the very government that has sworn to protect it.
There's a good mix of action, mystery, and political intrigue to satisfy any type of fan in my opinion. Wolverine is in top form here, coming off as very confident, but not unstoppable. His limits are pushed to the brink and his foes are suitably powerful enough to challenge him in a variety of ways. This is solely a Wolverine novel, with the other X-Men only receiving brief mentions here and there, and surprisingly the very idea of the X-Men and how they confront adversity and peaceful relations between Mutants and Humans receives some notable commentary throughout. It's overall a very good and interesting read that i'd suggest to not only Wolverine fans, but comic fans in general. Even if you're not that familiar with the character the basics of him and who he is (And what he does) are detailed within in a short amount of time.
