#1 New York Times bestselling author Frederick Forsyth delivers an international thriller that takes readers into the darkest hearts of men and nations…
In a remote corner of the impoverished African republic of Zangaro lies Crystal Mountain. At certain times of the day, the mountain itself seems to glow with a strange light. Only the ruthless and untouchable tycoon Sir James Manson knows why: the mountain contains billions of dollars worth of the world’s most valuable mineral—platinum. And he wants it all.
To do so, he must first remove the unfriendly government currently in power and replace it with a puppet regime. Towards this end, Manson hires the deadly Cat Shannon and his team of mercenaries to do the dirty work. But he didn’t realize how bloody things were going to get. And when he betrays the mercenaries to a brutal fate, he doesn’t realize how far Shannon is willing to go for revenge…

A classic action thriller
This is the kind of book that the author of most modern military or spy novels wish that they could write, an exciting story that doesn't require 900 pages to tell. The main part of the story is not the combat (although there is enough of that to go around) but the planning and execution of a plan to overthrow a government.
Mind numbingly boring
90% is about extraordinarily mundane stuff... it’s like reading a securities prospectus ... but one tenth as interesting ...
