By James Phelan
The brilliant fourth novel in the Lachlan Fox series
'An absolute must-read for fans of Clancy, Ludlum et al' Bookseller & Publisher
Six names and one GPS location. A death list.
When ex-navy operative turned investigative journalist Lachlan Fox blows open the story of the decade, simmering tensions between India and Pakistan hit boiling point. A continent's water -- liquid gold -- is at stake and one man thinks nothing of a potential all-out war when there is big money to be made. Before helpless millions die, Fox is determined to expose the corrupt Umbra Corporation, and the man behind it, to the world.
With hefty prices on their heads, Fox and his trusted man-at-arms, Al Gammaldi, are pitted against time, terrorist cells and rogue secret agents funded by dirty money. Flanked by news agency GSR and the FBI, Fox and Gammaldi are going to give as good as they get, but nothing can prepare them for the ferocity of this fight.
Fox knows that truth alone triumphs . . . and this time it's going to hurt.
