Description
With unrelenting excitement and in spectacular style, counterterrorist operative Alexander Hawke returns in this electrifying "New York Times" bestseller from Ted Bell, "the new Clive Cussler" (James Patterson).
Aboard a ship in the south of France, an American spy faces certain torture and death for the vital, explosive intelligence he possesses. In Paris, a ruthless and powerful descendant of Napoleon has forged an unholy alliance with China for its growing nuclear arsenal, poised to send America and the world to the brink of a gut-wrenching showdown. Now, in a maelstrom of razor's-edge danger, Alex Hawke must enter the nightmare visions of madmen to defuse an axis of evil no historian could have predicted -- and no living soul would survive.
