Description

On a freezing winter's night, a small craft skims across the Thames towards London's most exclusive new riverside hotel. On board is a lone assassin, his target - Britain's most powerful new politician. In a nation threatened by extremist jihadis and torn apart by civil unrest, billionaire businessman Vernon Rolt's plans for a zero-tolerance crackdown on ethnic violence has touched a popular nerve. But his move into politics has made him some deadly enemies. MI5 operative Tom Buckingham is undercover inside Rolt's organisation. From here he must neutralise the rogue assassins for whom he also has become a target, and discover the deadly intentions of Rolt's new financier, a shadowy Crimean oligarch. But all too soon, Tom gets caught up in a far more devastating plot which will change the political landscape of Europe - for ever . . .show more

About Andy McNab

From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life. As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS. Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's best-selling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers. He continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.show more
