Join Gideon Crew in his second adventure in this high-octane new thriller series from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors.
A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.
A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.
Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: In ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.
Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse-far worse-than mere Armageddon.
As a child, Gideon Crew witnessed the brutal murder of his father; a scientist wrongly framed by the US government, and shot down by police during a dramatic hostage crisis.
More than twenty years after his father's assassination, Gideon finally gets his revenge and fulfils the promise that he made to his mother on her death bed: to bring down the powerful and corrupt man who destroyed his father.
The Crew family name is finally cleared, but Gideon's story is only just beginning. His daredevil act of revenge has not gone unnoticed and he is soon approached by a shadowy figure who offers him the chance of a lifetime. The only catch? He might not have that much lifetime left and the clock is now ticking...
