Jonathan ‘Jad’ Bell has spent a lifetime in the US army. He can be relied on to get the job done, whatever happens, whatever the cost.

So when someone needs to go undercover at the nation’s biggest amusement park, Jad is the obvious choice. Aside from dealing with fights and missing children, his main responsibility is to prevent the nightmare scenario from coming to pass.

This is the nightmare scenario:

A group of well-trained, highly motivated terrorists infiltrate the park. They cut off all escape routes. They take hostages. They ensure every camera in the world is trained on Wilsonville…and then they turn it into a bloodbath.

And on the day the nightmare becomes real, Jad and his team are all that stands between a band of ruthless killers and thousands of innocent people… including Jad’s estranged wife and daughter.

Reviews

Cynical hero, unrelenting villains and a story told at rocket-fuelled pace...has a speed and conviction that sets it apart. The perfect airplane read
<i>Daily Mail</i>
A tough, action-filled thriller that starts at a gallop and never slows down
<i>Canberra Times</i>
Hands down, the most exciting, adrenaline-pumping, butt-kicking novel I've read in years.
Christopher Reich
'Pulse-pounding...Rucka mixes suspense and an alarmingly realistic plot with ease.'
<i>Publishers Weekly</i>
This lean, mean thriller with just the right amount of character development and unexpected complications will appeal to all who enjoy this genre but particularly to readers who like a strong hero along the lines of Lee Child's Jack Reacher.
