For the visitors to Wilsonville, the largest theme park in the world, the day began with a smile. By the end, they wonder—will they be able to escape with their lives?

Retired Delta Force operator, Master Sergeant Jonathan “Jad” Bell, is Wilsonville’s lead undercover security officer. The threat begins with the announcement of a hidden dirty bomb, but quickly becomes something far, far worse.

Trained since the age of seventeen to save innocent victims from impossible hostage situations, Jad scrambles to assess the threat and protect the visitors. He will come face to face with a villain whose training matches his in every way—and presents a threat Jad may not be able to stop.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Pulse-pounding…Rucka mixes suspense and an alarmingly realistic plot with ease.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • Alpha is hands down, the most exciting, adrenaline-pumping, butt-kicking novel I’ve read in years. Rucka is the real deal. If this one doesn’t make you stay up late rooting for the good guys, you don’t have a heartbeat. Highly recommended!”

    Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Deception and Numbered Account

  • “A smashing start…pitch-perfect…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. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “An interesting setting, a liable hero, an appropriately clever villain, and a gripping story. A real corker.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Abbey Trotta | 2/6/2014

    " This book reminded me of a Lee Child's type action story but with more technical detail and better character development. Another reviewer referenced Die Hard which I found to be an apt comparison except Jad Bell has a team. In future novels it would be awesome to have some more development of the team members. All in all a rollercoaster ride of an action novel superbly crafted. I look forward to the next book in the series. "

    " Really couldn't put this one down easily. Superquick summer read about a sleeper cell/terrorist plot at a themepark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jovany Trujillo | 1/30/2014

    " Die Hard in Disneyland sounds about right. Enjoyed Greg Rucka's Batman: No Man's Land and decided to give this novel a chance. Glad I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Doug Wareing | 1/29/2014

    " It's like a Tom Clancy book where you can actually follow all the characters. Sharp writing, good plot twists, and a satisfying ending. "
