The "Accident Man" returns to prevent a global holy war
Tom Cain's The Accident Man introduced Samuel Carver-a man hired to make bad things happen-to rave reviews from major newspapers and fellow thriller writers alike. Now, Carver is back in an action packed new adventure that takes him from the war rooms of Washington, D.C., to the merciless Arctic peaks of Norway and from the palaces of the French Riviera to the war-torn Serbian countryside.
At the beginning of No Survivors, Carver lies broken and damaged in a Swiss sanitarium after rescuing his lover, Alix Petrova, from her Russian spymaster. But when Alix's former employers force her to leave Carver and seduce an American military official, Carver emerges from his catatonia and returns-violently- to his former self. As Carver tracks Alix down, he uncovers a messianic Texas billionaire's chilling plot to reactivate stolen Soviet suitcase nukes and set off a global holy war that will bring about the final Rapture. Driven by a brilliant cast of characters and a terrifyingly plausible story line, No Survivors is a pulse-pounding follow-up that will leave readers breathless.
