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)

Need more Stratton Mr Falconer

Have just finished this excellent series and only wish there was more to read. The two narrators involved have been outstanding as have the stories which really need to be made into films without being influenced by the existing Stratton film not quite living up to the first book which sadly wasn't available as an audio book. Makers of audio books MUST include all in a series and make sure the narrators are up to the same standard as those who have worked on these books.

Top notch

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