Overview

Set in South Africa of the early 1990s, this military thriller has fascist ultraconservative Afrikaners staging a coup and taking over the Pretoria government. The new government then re-institutes apartheid and invades bordering Namibia. A Communist counterforce led by the Cubans is mounted, as internal revolt and harsh suppression breed domestic chaos. A Boer nuclear attack on the Cubans is answered by nerve gas from the Cubans. A daring raid by US Rangers destroys the Afrikaner weapons before they can be used again, while U.S. and British ground forces restore order after much fighting and destruction.


"The techno-thriller has a new ace, and his name is Larry Bond."
– Tom Clancy, Author of "Clear and Present Danger"

"Military adventure on grand scale ... and intricate and compelling thriller that is pure Bond in great form. Larry Bond has proven himself the master of military adventure."
– Clive Cussler, Bestselling author of "Dragon"

"Techno-thriller fans rejoice! Larry Bond is good – very, very good. I started sweating on the first page."
– Stephen Coonts, Bestselling author of "Under Siege"

"A gripping military scenario novel. As timely as today's headlines."
– W.E.B Griffin, Bestselling author of "Battleground"
