ABOUT OPERATOR DOWN:
OPERATOR DOWN opens with Israeli operators, and series fan favorites, Shoshana and Aaron, who have been tasked with tracking a merchant in the fabled Israeli Diamond Exchange. Formerly a leader of an elite team under Mossad, Aaron is now working as a contractor, so when he disappears without a trace while tailing his asset, there is no one but Shoshana to help.
Meanwhile, Pike and his team are following an American arms dealer in Tel Aviv who may be attempting to sell sensitive nuclear weapons components to the highest bidder. When The Taskforce breaks up an attempt to kill Shoshana, they stumble into more than they expected—a conspiracy to topple a democratic African country. Pike is forced to choose between his Israeli friends and his Taskforce mission, even as the execution of the coup begins to form.
