Synopsis

Strike Back refers to the missions of Section 20, a special forces operational force that makes the world a safer place. Over the years, they have faced a number of threats that required more engagement than the table duties find and making morally questionable decisions for the greater good. But this year they will pay the price for it.

A simple mission of rescuing British property in Kosovo in the midst of a civil uprising is going wrong. Section 20 learns that dangerous biological weapons have found their way into the hands of a mysterious Balkan jihadist, aided by unknown forces. As Section 20 races to overthrow this enemy, they become aware of the danger they are left in. Global action sparked by war hawks in the US and UK to create an excuse for invasion of the Balkans and the destruction of the Black River – the infamous Balkan trade route that carries most of the drugs and weapons between the Middle East and Europe. At the head of this action is James Tanner, Deputy Chief of SIS (aka MI6) and the creator of Department 20. Tanner needs a team to find his target – a Balkan terrorist called Zayef. When Zayef carries out a major terrorist attack in Europe, the blood is on Tanner’s hands – and the Department will not agree to concealment.
