She is undercover. She is pretending to be in love. She is ready to protect.

In the aftermath of a failed plot against America, Jad Bell and his team are sent after those behind it. But they can only find the middle man, not the mastermind.

Something far worse is coming. And at the heart of it all are two women: an American spy and a terrorist operative, both living lies so deep they cannot even trust themselves.

The stakes are higher, the clock is ticking, and the enemies are hiding in plain sight…


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.

'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.
<i>Library Journal</i>
Praise for ALPHA
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
