Incarcerated in a prison hidden from society, an all but broken man has a terrifying secret. His captors know what he has done, have tortured it out of him, but they do not know everything. All he needs to do to bring down the Western world is hold out for long enough.
Still reeling from a CIA double-cross, MI5 need their prisoner back. Alex King accepts a mission of unparalleled risk. But first, he must commit a crime that will see him treated outside the US legal system and get to a prisoner who can destroy or save mankind with the knowledge he holds. For King, the risk is worth the gamble. But getting into America’s secret prison to snatch back an asset is nothing compared to breaking out....
“Alex King is unstoppable, a force to be reckoned with....” (Stephen Leather)
