Overview

The world is overrun by an unimaginable horror. The few surviving humans are scattered in tiny outposts across the world, hoping for reprieve - or death. Waiting on the runway of the abandoned Las Vegas airport sits the B-52 bomber Liberty Bell, revving up for its last, desperate mission. On board - six crew members and one 10-kiloton nuclear payload. The target is a secret compound in the middle of the world's most inhospitable desert.

All the crew have to do is drop the bomb and head to safety.

But when the Liberty Bell crashes, the surviving crew are stranded in the most remote corner of Death Valley. They're alone in an alien environment, their only shelter the wreckage of their giant aircraft, with no hope of rescue. And death is creeping towards them from the place they sought to destroy - and may already reside beneath their feet in the burning desert sands.

This is the fourth of Adam Baker's thrillers set in the post-apocalyptic world of OUTPOST, JUGGERNAUT and TERMINUS.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A lock and load adventure of the highest calibre. A tense, absorbing journey and a high speed collision of military action and apocalyptic horror. Blackhawk Down meets Day of the Dead.—Adam Nevill, author of Apartment 16, on JUGGERNAUT

There's no denying the strength of Baker's prose.—SFX Magazine

JUGGERNAUT is populated with believable characters, strong dialogue and impeccably researched detail. These characters live, love, fight and betray their way through to the book's explosive finale... If you like zombies and survival horror then this book is for you. If you like to see just what man is capable of doing when his back is against the wall then this book definitely is the one for you.—Starburst

JUGGERNAUT is hugely entertaining and as unstoppable as its namesake.—Financial Times

Adam Baker's style is very reminiscent of a combination of Matthew Reilly and James Patterson, and like both those authors, he uses it to tell a punchy story that keeps you engrossed from start to finish.—Sci-Fi Bulletin
