The terrorist Abu ben-Zhair is on the cusp of realising his vision to destroy the West and cow the East, thereby succeeding in his avowed ‘Cause of All Causes’ to establish a Caliphate which rules half the world.
In this terror thriller, Steve Baldwin is sent into Algeria with only Ellie Williams (MI6) to support him – and GCHQ hackers to guide them. The gritty covert action and espionage moves from Gibraltar to Algeria – and onward across the Atlantic Ocean. Ben-Zhair has identified one critical point on the earth’s surface where one determined terrorist with resources and imagination can trigger disaster on a global scale – and he has the weapon for this purpose.
In the murky world of counter-intelligence, trust is a tradable commodity and the Geo-political turf wars continue while ben-Zhair moves towards his climactic attack on the US and Europe.
Action and adventure moves to a terrifying close and the international political maneuvering continues – up to the very last seconds.
