When cyber terrorist Fang Bao abruptly reappears after years in hiding, MI6 agent and former SAS trooper Jack Tate is sent to bring him in – but when Fang is assassinated by an unknown assailant, Tate realises he was only a pawn in a plot that threatens to put the whole world in danger.
The mission is impossible
Now Tate has to uncover a lethal conspiracy that stretches all the way from Germany through the United States and into the dark heart of the jungle in Myanmar. As the enemy hunt down the owners of military secrets that would make them indestructible, Tate must race to identify not only their next target, but the enemy themselves.
The war is about to begin…
Soon he learns the dark truth at the heart of the global conspiracy. The enemy doesn’t want to just assassinate a world leader; they want to make war – and Tate is the only one who can stop them.
My thoughts: from the German countryside to California, Singapore and beyond, there’s a conspiracy to destabilise the North Korean regime and replace the current despot with, well, another one essentially.
But a UK/US task force in enroute to stop them, rescue a scientist in hiding, end a rogue soldier’s run of murders and try to keep the world from falling apart. Easy.
With a rip roaring pace and a blend of cyber terrorism and old fashioned blowing stuff up, this is a gripping, high octane and intelligent thriller.
