Editorial Reviews

Lachlan Fox has retired from his work as diver in the Australian Navy and is hoping to live the quiet life, but he's thrust right back into the action after he discovers a mysterious pod on the floor of the Indian Ocean. The discovery, and what it reveals, thrusts him into an international web of politics, arms sales, intrigue, and corruption, stretching from East Timor to Iran and back again. This is a dark, suspenseful tale with plenty of continent-hoping action, and performer Adrian Mulraney's distinguished baritone lends a touch of class.

Publisher's Summary

Gutsy, fast-paced, explosive thriller that is guaranteed to appeal to Matthew Reilly fans.

When the world faces a deadly threat from a lost weapon, Lachlan Fox, disillusioned ex-Navy operative, is forced back into action. Lachlan Fox has made a career out of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. As a shore assault specialist in an Australian Navy Clearance Diver Team, he came up against bad guys and even worse odds. Having been discharged from the Navy, Fox tries to enjoy the quiet life, but during a visit from his best friend Alister Gammaldi, Fox's life is thrown out of balance. On a diving trip off Christmas Island the pair recover an obviously military but unidentifiable pod from the sea floor of the Indian Ocean-setting in motion a chain of events that will drag them both into the corrupt world of international politics and arms races. From East Timor and Christmas Island to Grozny, Washington to New York, Venice to Iran, Lachlan Fox is forced back into action to save the world from a deadly threat.
