Andrew Britton Books Overview
At thirty three, Ryan Kealey has achieved more in his military and CIA career than most men can dream of in a lifetime. He’s also seen the worst life has to offer and is lucky to have survived it. But being left alone with his demons is no longer an option. The CIA needs him badly, because the enemy they re facing is former U.S. soldier Jason March. Ryan knows all about March he trained him. He knows they re dealing with one of the most ruthless assassins in the world, a master of many languages, an explosives expert, a superb sharpshooter who can disappear like a shadow and who is capable of crimes they cannot begin to imagine. And now, March has resurfaced on the global stage, aligning himself with a powerful Middle East terror network whose goal is nothing less than the total destruction of the United States. Teaming up with beautiful and tenacious British born agent Naomi Kharmai, Ryan intends to break every rule in order to hunt down his former pupil, whatever the cost to himself. As Ryan puts together the pieces of a terrifying puzzle, and as the elusive March taunts him, always staying one step ahead, he discovers the madman s crusade is personal as well as political and Ryan himself is an unwitting pawn. With the clock ticking down and the fate of the country resting uneasily on his shoulders, Ryan is caught in a desperate game of cat and mouse with the most cunning opponent he s ever faced, one who will never stop until he s committed the ultimate act of evil a man who is all the more deadly for being one of our own.

Now he s about to become a key player in a plot of unimaginable scale. For something big is about to go down in New York City. When a top Iranian source reveals that Iran is planning to bomb the United Nations, U.S. Intelligence begins counter measures. Only Kealey sees it as a smokescreen for another, far more involved plot. But getting anyone to believe him isn t going to be easy. With only his ally, London s newest assistant chief, Naomi Kharmai, by his side, Ryan will have to operate outside the lines in order to prevent a terrible attack in a city on lockdown. A weapon of catastrophic power has been stolen from war torn Iraq and has made its way to the U.S. The man who has it is Kealey s nemesis, William Vanderveen, an international criminal mastermind who has no objective other than pure terror and who will stop at nothing to achieve it. Making matters worse, Vanderveen s being helped by someone on the inside with high ranking security clearance. Even the halls of the CIA are no longer safe from possible espionage and treason. Now, as Kealey and Kharmai race to put the pieces together, they will confront a ghost from the past and be forced to question the people they trust most in a desperate investigation where only this is for certain time is running out.

Tensions between Pakistan and India are at an all time high. To complicate matters, twelve American climbers have disappeared in the snow capped peaks of Pakistan s Hindu Kush range. The President is demanding answers, but neither government is supplying them.
As the conflict escalates, Brynn Fitzgerald departs Washington D.C. on her first official trip as acting secretary of state. Her goal is to serve as an intermediary between the leaders of both nations as well as to ensure all efforts are being made in the search for the missing American climbers. But when Fitzgerald s motorcade is ambushed on the outskirts of Islamabad, her back up team arrives to discover a disastrous scene: dozens are dead, including seven diplomatic security agents, and the secretary of state has vanished without a trace.
In the wake of the unprecedented attack, Kealey s operation goes into high gear. Once again, he is joined by Naomi Kharmai, the British born analyst who has taken on a daring new role with the Agency. But Kharmai is becoming as unpredictable as the man they re going after, and as they work their way toward the target, it becomes clear to Kealey that anyone is fair game and no one can be trusted.
