When he is being forced to attack a civilian target, he contacts the security forces and offers a deal: free his grandmother in exchange for the terrorists' base.In a stunning climax, a crack team of SAS commandos, lead by Lieutenant John Waters, attack the base. His orders: locate and secure the Apache, and leave no survivors.But Kelly escapes, as does the terrorist mastermind, who realizes they have been betrayed ...
Once again, French takes us into the dark world of terrorism, the domain of savage men and women who kill without compunction, and a place which which he is entirely familiar.
