    An Underground carriage in London is destroyed by a suicide bomber. The injured and the dead litter the platform. But as a crowd forms at street level, Michael Pope knows that this is only the beginning. Pope, head of top-secret Group 15, is tasked with finding the perpetrators of this atrocity and bringing them to justice, any way he can. He knows that the answers to many of his questions will lie at the end of the money trail, but he also knows that whoever funded and organized the attack will kill again for their freedom.

    This book was ok but not griping did not yearn to list to the next chapter

    Characters were not gripping and I tended to loos sight of the story and where it was going.

    Isabella Rose, the Angel, is used to surprises, but being abducted is an unwelcome novelty. She's relying on Michael Pope, the head of the top-secret Group Fifteen, to get her back. When ISIS get involved, the situation becomes even bleaker. Isabella's abductors are in turn abducted, and she finds herself trapped in Raqqa, the capital of the self-styled caliphate. Meanwhile, Pope has problems of his own: a new danger has emerged from the shadows and is threatening both him and his family.

    Showing promise but...

    Great plot but over written and over explained. Good characters. Story line exposition marred by pedantry.
