Stratton is sent into Yemen to capture a terrorist suspected of possessing ground to air missiles. When the Chinese get involved things go horribly wrong and Stratton finds himself escaping out to sea in the Gulf of Aden.

But Stratton’s capture turns out to be far from a dead-end encounter when he uncovers a plot to bring down dozens of commercial aircraft across the US and Europe in a coordinated attack. But in order to get the information back to his people Stratton has to escape from the pirates and their leader who knows far too much and is prepared to do anything to protect his interests.

Book Reviews

  • "  ... a good rattling story involving lots of hi-tech gear, a hard-as-nails hero (appearing in his fifth book), lots of people (mostly foreigners) getting bumped off in nasty ways, and a token bit of female interest. It’s written in a very readable format.... if your thing is SBS/SAS heroes operating to kill terrorists, with a minimum of complications but a decent enough plot, then I can recommend this to you ....If you are a fan of this genre, the SF action story, then it's probably 5 out of 5 for you"
