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.
