What if you discovered the key to an international conspiracy that could destroy the United States and democracies around the world? How long would you have to live? In this latest Thomas Gunn thriller, the clock is ticking for Morgan Alvarez, an investigative journalist who once saved Thomas's life. She suddenly disappears, desperately sending a mysteriously coded message that only he can crack. Racing to follow her cryptic clues, he and his partner Julie are thrust into a convoluted minefield of shady financial dealings, political corruption, extortion, murder and a lust for power on a scale that both stuns and terrifies them.
While tracking billions of dollars shipped through Afghanistan, Iran, Bolivia, Estonia, the UK and USA, they tangle with ruthless Mexican drug cartels, corrupt politicians, greedy Wall St brokers and even the CIA, FBI, and MI5. The stakes are high in this deadly game. The only rule? Survival at all costs. But something keeps niggling at Thomas's mind. Who first set this evil plan in motion? Where? And why?
It appears the shocking truth lies in the painful memories of his past, during covert operations in Afghanistan at the height of the war. A past he had hoped to forget, but will not forget him. Incensed at what he discovers he does something so outrageous, that its boldness and daring will take your breath away! But how high a price will he have to pay for uncovering the truth?
As the son of an MI6 operative, former Officer in Britain's elite Parachute Regiment, pilot, race-car driver, yachtsman and bestselling author of "Contact", AFN Clarke brings a wealth of experience to his writing. This book may be read as a stand-alone story, however readers interested in following the entire series may gain a greater appreciation of the background and personality of the key characters by also reading the first book, "The Orange Moon Affair". The series has been hailed by the San Francisco Book Review as "fast-paced books that you won't want to put down and you won't want them to finish." Available in both ebook and paperback format.AUTHOR INTERVIEW"Why do you think this series has been so well received by readers worldwide?"
AFN Clarke: I think it's because from page one, Thomas's world becomes their world! He's a caring, compassionate man who's found love and wants to leave his old life behind him.
But when something dramatic and deeply personal shakes him to the core, the only way he knows to right a wrong, expose a crime or bring an enemy to its knees, is to go back to who he once was - a Special Forces officer skilled in assassination, covert operations and international espionage. The problem is, at what cost?
I think readers also appreciate the strong female protagonists essential to the series. Whether motivated by good or evil, they are powerful, independent-thinking women, whose strength of character, insights, skills and intelligence directly determine how the action unfolds.THOMAS GUNN SERIES EBOOK CATEGORIES
