In Afghanistan, elite operative John Stratton leads a raid on a remote compound, leaving no survivors.
Days later, in London, Stratton is contacted by an old friend in military intelligence with a curious message about being hunted by an assassin.
When the officer vanishes, Stratton is drawn into a desperate race to secure a missing nuclear warhead that has been stolen from the Pakistan military. Against an unknown enemy, he begins a heart-stopping search for the bomb that will take him from a Taliban hideout just a few miles outside Bagram Air Base to the crowded streets of Manhattan.
A terrifying and authentic vision of the special forces world by an ex-SBS operative, this is Duncan Falconer's most gripping thriller to date.
Another great read
I really enjoyed this book full of action however it was not as thrilling as previous books the Operative is by far my favourite book by this author but still a really good book
Assassin by Duncan falconer
NOT his best work I think he's let himself down with this one ! I've read all his books !
Yet another good read by Duncan, I just found this a little short. So I'm hoping Mr Stratton will be back soon!!
