If you like page-turners based on realistic scenarios and thoughtful characters you will love this fast-paced spy fiction. Here is what we can tell you about the plot, from the official book write up:
One by one, a group of top Department of Defense research scientists are murdered or die by unusual circumstances.
Each instance appears to be a random act of violence or a fateful accident that is unrelated to the classified work projects that the scientists were involved with.
Halfway around the world, a military conflict in Korea escalates. Battle tested United States Marine First Lieutenant Nick Gallaher survives after being injured and captured by enemy forces, only to learn during his recovery that his father died while skydiving, and his older brother was brutally killed while investigating a lead into their father’s death.
As he closes in on the truth, Gallaher uncovers a sinister plot to hijack a game-changing laser weapons platform code-named Crossfire, and to use it to upset the balance of world power. But before he can act, Gallaher is taken prisoner once again and held captive aboard one of Russia’s most advanced nuclear-powered guided-missile submarines. Amid dog fights in the sky and intense submarine chases beneath the ocean waves, the Russians prepare to annihilate a U.S. naval carrier strike group in the Middle East. Gallaher must take matters into his own hands and decide whether to trust a Russian officer who may, in fact, be a British spy, to escape from his captors aboard the Russian submarine and to destroy the space-based laser satellite reflection mirror before all hell breaks loose. Crossfire is a gripping, adrenaline-infused roller-coaster ride that is sure to delight murder mystery, military action, suspense and international espionage thriller fans everywhere.
