Synopsis

Another explosive military thriller from the award-winning author of 'The Seventh Angel' and 'Sea of Shadows'

Three Tibetan rebels attack a train carrying Chinese soldiers into the Tibet Autonomous Region. The rebels escape across the Himalayas into India, unaware that the son of China's First Vice-Premier lays maimed and dying among the burning wreckage of the train.  As an escalating series of retaliations drive China and India toward outright war, hostilities spill over into the sea, and the Bay of Bengal becomes a crucible of naval warfare.

The president of the United States orders a U.S. Navy strike group into the area as a stabilizing force, but the situation between the two nations has already deteriorated beyond any hope of peaceful resolution.  With Asia hovering on the brink of annihilation, a small force of U.S. warships must defeat the Chinese Navy to preempt the coming firestorm.

A SINGLE SPARK CAN IGNITE A WAR THAT CONSUMES THE WORLD.  The fuse has already been lit...
