Publisher's Summary


After leading a raid in Afghanistan, elite operative John Stratton is contacted by an old friend in military intelligence with a curious message about being hunted by an assassin.
When the officer vanishes, Stratton gets drawn into a desperate race to secure a missing nuclear warhead, stolen from the Pakistan military.
Against an unknown enemy, he conducts a terrifying search for the bomb - from a Taliban hideout a few miles outside Bagram Air Base to the crowded streets of Manhattan.
An authentic vision of the special forces world by an ex-SBS operative, this is Duncan Falconer's most gripping thriller yet.

Critic Reviews

"Falconer, himself ex-SBS, knows his detail and how to spin it into a yarn." (Weekend Sport)
"Inevitably he'll be compared to McNab, but I'd say Falconer has the edge." (Mail on Sunday)

Top notch

Great story, good bit of Hollywood, grounded by Falconer's realism. Plenty of twists, and Stratton kicks ass.
