A long-forgotten threat becomes a deadly new danger
What should have been a routine arrest near Geneva turns into a bloody shoot-out. Four terrorists and four policeman are left dead, with Paul Richter on the run from a murder charge.
Back in the UK, a tramp is viciously murdered on the Isle of Sheppey. Then a surveillance operation in Stuttgart goes badly wrong when a mole tips off the terrorists.
As Richter hunts for the connection between these widely separated events, he discovers a chilling plot: to use the world’s largest ever non-nuclear explosion to devastate the City of London, and leave thousands dead.
Pitted against both a vicious and highly-experienced terrorist, and a ruthless gang of international criminals, Richter must use all his skill and grit to prevent the atrocity. But the true identity of the mastermind will come as a shock to everyone.
The fifth Paul Richter novel showcases James Barrington as an elite thriller writer at the very height of his powers. With twists and turns aplenty, it portrays the world of a military operator with an almost unrivalled precision and verve.Watch out for more Agent Paul Richter thrillers
