Another explosive adventure featuring invincible SBS operative John Stratton, who discovers the dark truth behind a rash of pirate hijackings
A mysterious "attack rehearsal" in Columbia by Islamic terrorists results in Stratton being sent on a kidnap mission to Yemen?but when the Chinese Secret Service gets involved, things go horribly wrong, and Stratton finds himself escaping out to sea in the Gulf of Aden. Unfortunately it's not the Royal Navy that picks him up but a band of Somali pirates?but Stratton's capture turns out to be far from a dead-end encounter when he uncovers a plot to bring down dozens of commercial aircraft across the U.S. and Europe in a coordinated attack. Stratton must escape in order to return with an SBS attack squadron, but as is so often the case, situations, and people, are not quite what they first appear to be.
