Thriller | Suspense Spy
With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power
struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the president was
forced to establish his own clandestine group--Covert-One.
It is activated only as a last resort, when the threat is on
a global scale and time is running out.
THE JANUS REPRISAL
It begins with a terrorist attack. Covert-One operative
Colonel Jon Smith is attending a conference in The Hague on
infectious diseases, together with leading scientists and
political figures from around the world. Without warning,
the conference hotel is consumed in a bloodbath. Smith is
caught in the crossfire and barely escapes . . . but not
before discovering a picture of himself and two other
targets in the pocket of one of the shooters.
But the hotel is not the only location under attack in The
Hague. Bombs are going off at the train station, the
airport, and the International Criminal Court, where
Pakistani warlord Oman Dattar is being held while he's tried
for crimes against humanity. In the resulting chaos, the
Dattar nurses a special hatred for the United States and its
allies. With his freedom, and access to a mysterious new
weapon, Dattar puts in motion a murderous, ambitious plot to
exact his revenge and bring down the West once and for
all--unless Covert-One can stop him.
