In February 2016 North Korea successfully tested an H bomb - the backdrop to frantic diplomatic activity and a multi-threaded tale of suspense. Outrageous demands by a visionary terrorist become public and throw the UN into panic.
Ex-Royal Marine Steve Baldwin has been up against an old enemy, Maruška Pavkovic in Malta, but new priorities resulting from the British Government’s dark objectives move him to North Africa where political instability is the norm and terrorists rule.
Baldwin is in the thick of it in more ways than one with Ellie Williams, a senior British agent, as they try to prevent disaster. Events overtake him and he is caught in a powerful intrigue too strong for him to fight against. Is he a hero or just a victim?
With thousands of lives at stake the UK Prime Minister is bent on secretly acquiring the technology - an outrageous gamble with the lives of her soldiers and the diplomatic reputation of the UK. Can Baldwin save the day – and the Prime Minister’s reputation?
