An explosive, race-against-time thriller and the first in the action-packed series featuring ex-military close protection operators, Ryan Lock and Ty Johnson. From the winner of the 2018 International Thriller Writers award.
A DEADLY MISSION
It may be Christmas Eve in New York, but for ex-military bodyguard Ryan Lock it's business as usual.
His task: to protect the CEO of the world's largest bio-technology company from a group of radical, and highly determined, activists.
A BLOODY SHOOTOUT
But when a failed assassination attempt leaves the streets of midtown littered with bodies, and hours later the son of the company's chief research scientist is abducted from his Upper West Side prep school, Lock's hunt for the boy turns into an explosive game of cat and mouse.
ONLY ONE MAN CAN SAVE NEW YORK
Through the corporate corridors of power and dark alleys of Manhattan, Lock's search leads him towards a deadly confrontation with one of the world's most dangerous women. As the clock ticks towards midnight on New Year's Eve, and the crowds gather in Times Square, Lock realizes that not only is his own life in terrible danger but so are the lives of millions of others...

My 2nd time reading LOCKDOWN and I still love it!
Certain books become a reader’s friends, and this is one of mine. My “bookfriends” contain real, down-to -earth human characters, humor enough to keep me grinning and action that is unexpected, and consistent with reality but just stretching the limit of believability. This author’s books meet all my requirements and more. Lots of research goes into his writing, and he can literally transport a reader to another world with his plots, subplots, side plots and detail.
Super book. Exciting and unpredictable.
An un-put-downable read!
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book. The hero’s, villains and people in between are completely intriguing. One of the best books I’ve read.
