'The Peacemaker' is the second novel to feature US Navy Officer Alan Craik following 'Night Trap'. Having recently returned from sea duty, Alan is stuck behind a desk in the Pentagon when he learns that his best friend, a CIA agent, has been kidnapped in central Africa - just as Rwanda is about to be engulfed in violence. After flying out to join a Mediterranean-bound US fleet that has been split in two to cover the growing African crisis, Alan is sent on an ill-fated rescue attempt that leaves him and his wounded friend stranded in the middle of the continent, facing a daunting escape cross-country as bloody war rages all around them.
Meanwhile, with its flag aircraft carrier separated from its battlecruiser by a thousand miles, the overstretched US fleet is facing new dangers, as the test launch off the coast of Libya of Peacemaker, a top-secret weapon, comes under threat from an unexpected quarter.
