The latest techno-thriller from the New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown.

THE FIGHT FOR THE PACIFIC BEGINS . . .

When China launches the first successful test of its deadly new Dong Feng-21D antiship ballistic missile, President Phoenix finds himself facing up to a terrible reality: he has just slashed the military budget to reduce the national debt. But without funds to compete with China's advancing technology, the future looks bleak - are America's days of Pacific naval supremacy numbered?

Retired US Air Force Lieutenant General Patrick McLanahan refuses to accept this fate. The government may lack money, but McLanahan believes it's possible to revive their old - but still potent - long-range B-1B Lancer bombers to push back against Chinese aggression. The President backs McLanahan, and soon America stands ready to deploy a battle task force in the South China Sea. The stage is set for an epic battle for supreme Pacific dominion.

New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown is at the top of his game, bringing to life a thrilling and dramatic story that could almost foreshadow the headlines of the not-so-distant future.

Praise for Dale Brown:

'Dale Brown is the best military adventure writer in the country.' Clive Cussler.

'Brown puts us in the cockpit...authentic and gripping.' New York Times.

A deadly fall on a rugged stretch of California coast. A home invasion gone wrong in Brittany. No one connects the killings because the victims are living under cover, their true identities closely-held secrets. They are members of America's most select kill/capture team, which combines special operations lethality with CIA tradecraft. They are the last line of defense against foreign threats, and someone is assassinating them one by one where they sleep, taking family and innocent bystanders to make the deaths seem like accidents. Captain John Hayes, a special operations legend, has left the military and spent the past year at home with his family. Once he uncovers the pattern behind the killings, he returns to the field to protect the men and women he once worked with. One of those women, Claire Sutherland, draws suspicion for her brilliant abilities as an assassin, and vanishes into thin air. Meanwhile, the attacks on Hayes's team members grow bolder, the killers conspiring to draw them into Manhattan by orchestrating a devastating attack on Independence Day.Hayes and his teammates are racing against the clock to save their own lives, and thousands more. As with his first John Hayes novel, Cold Barrel Zero, Matthew Quirk has written a breathless high-stakes thriller where the gravest dangers are embedded deep within a tangled nest of politics, double-crosses, and government conspiracies.
