From the acclaimed author of Night Trap, the third exhilarating tale of modern espionage and military adventure featuring US Navy intelligence officer Alan Craik – sure to appeal to the many fans of Tom Clancy and Dale Brown.

The Alan Craik novels – NIGHT TRAP and PEACEMAKER – have earned Gordon Kent electrifying praise for their pace, authenticity and raw emotion, as well as for some of the most remarkable heroes – and villains – in fiction today. Now US Navy Intelligence officer Alan Craik is back in action, all because one man, fuelled by anger, ambition and pain, has ignited an explosive chain of events that threatens not only two careers, but world peace itself…

Alan Craik and his wife Rose are flying high. She’s heading for astronaut training; he’s off to espionage school. But they come crashing down to earth when Rose is falsely accused of spying. As Alan risks everything to clear her name, a series of stunning escalations take his high-tech airborne attachment – and the world – to the brink of war. Suddenly, Craik finds himself hurtling through forbidden airspace to find “Top Hook”, the spy whose act of betrayal is more complex – and chilling – than anyone can imagine.

When Rose laces her vocabulary with such language does she intend to sound like “one of the boys”?
