Islamic State is here, all around us. There is no defence. Only attack.

The third book in the hugely popular Danny Black series by the creator of the hit TV show Strikeback.

On the Syria/Iraq border a British hostage is beheaded by IS terrorists. The executioner is a young British extremist. A masked figure watches him. This mysterious person is treated with a mixture of respect and terror. They call him the Caliph.

In Nigeria the British High Commisioner and his young aide are kidnapped. A four-person SAS team, including Regiment hero Danny Black, is deployed to find him. The team find devastation in Nigeria, and when they discover prisoners infected with the plague they realise they have uncovered a combined Boko Haram/IS plot to unleash a bio-terror attack upon the world.

The team must stop the terrorists and identify the Caliph before the deadly disease threatens those much closer to home.

[Ryan] is reliably capable of depicting international crises and special forces operations in plausible and gripping detail — Sunday Times
Praise for Chris Ryan — :
Ryan writes the kind of no-frills prose that virtually dictates the pace at which it is read. We're told just as much as we need to know, and it never gets in the way of the action . . . If you want a demonstration of how 400-odd pages can pass by in the wink of an eye, Ryan is your man. — Independent
Ryan... became so expert as a modern thriller writer that it is easy to underestimate his talents...He chooses fiercely up-to-the-minute plots, and laces them with an exceptional eye for detail and insider knowledge...Fearsome and fast-moving...much more than a conventional thriller. — Daily Mail
A shockingly authentic tale to keep your adrenaline pumping as fast as the blood on the pages. — The Sun
Chris Ryan has always been underrated as a novelist of ideas... a welter of treachery and mayhem. — Daily Telegraph
The books are masterpieces of social realism. [Chris Ryan] has lived the virtual life he writes about - and that makes him the right kind of war novelist for this generation. These storylines are dependent on a bustle of verbs that lead in every instance to blood and explosions, desperate screams and increasing levels of difficulty: it is never long before we find things and people being zapped, fried, crunched, toasted and skewered, as the bad deeds of the world are comprehensively avenged. — London Review of Books
