An exhilarating new tale of modern espionage and flying adventure featuring US Navy intelligence officer Alan Craik - sure to appeal to the many fans of Tom Clancy, Dale Brown and Patrick Robinson.
During a fleet exercise in India, Alan Craik faces a minefield of explosive events that threaten to tear the country and a US battle group apart. A military base is attacked by 'fringe elements'; an Indian submarine mutinies and then shoots down a US Navy aircraft; and a group of Indian scientists are killed - attacked with Sarin gas.
Craik, ignoring the conventional wisdom that the incidents are unrelated, believes that a fanatical group have control of certain elements of both the Indian government and its armed forces.
Then the rebels seize part of India's nuclear arsenal. Suddenly, a US carrier battle group joins Pakistan, China, and Saudi Arabia on the target list.
The world is faced with the spectacle of a nuclear-capable nation in the hands of a self-destructive religious cult, and it's up to Craik and a team of specialists to recapture the nukes and prevent massive devastation.
But with time running out and the cult leader still at large, are they already too late?
