Newly named head of Rainbow, an elite multinational task force, John Clark faces the world's greatest fear - international terrorism. And following each terrifying new outbreak - the ghosts from his own dark past. The challenge of a new mission is just what Clark needs, but the opportunities come faster than he expected. Hostage-taking at a Swiss bank. The kidnapping of an international trader. Carnage at a theme park in Spain. Each incident seems separate, yet the timing disturbs Clarke. Is there a connection? Is he being tested? Or is there a bigger threat out there, from terrorists so extreme that no government is ready to admit their existence?'Action packed and full of guns and suspense... a skilfully-crafted plot and high readability.'
