An ex-operative tries to keep a high-tech missile out of Russian hands in this thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Death Trade. For ten years, Paul Chavasse was one of Britain’s most promising intelligence agents. But when a botched mission in Albania destroyed him physically and psychologically, he was discharged from the agency a broken man. To regain his life of adventure, Chavasse trains under Chinese martial arts master Yuan Tao, gathering his strength and focusing his energy. Now, he will tackle his deadliest assignment yet: foiling a plot by ruthless Russian spies to steal Britain’s newest—and deadliest—missile. From the multimillion-selling author of such classics as The Eagle Has Landed, this is an action-packed story of espionage and high-stakes adventure.
