More than a year has passed since Ryan Kealey prevented the assassination of multiple world leaders in the nation's capital. While his work is brilliant, he's considered damaged goods. Now he's about to become a key player in a plot of unimaginable scale. For something big is about to go down in New York City.

When a top Iranian source reveals that Iran is planning to bomb the United Nations, U.S. Intelligence begins counter-measures. Only Kealey sees it as a smokescreen for another, far more involved plot. But getting anyone to believe him isn't going to be easy. With only his ally, London's newest assistant chief, Naomi Kharmai, by his side, Ryan will have to operate outside the lines in order to prevent a terrible attack in a city on lockdown.

A weapon of catastrophic power has been stolen from war-torn Iraq and has made its way to the U.S. The man who has it is Kealey's nemesis, William Vanderveen, an international criminal mastermind who has no objective other than pure terror and who will stop at nothing to achieve it. Making matters worse, Vanderveen's being helped by someone on the inside with high ranking security clearance. Even the halls of the CIA are no longer safe from possible espionage and treason. Now, as Kealey and Kharmai race to put the pieces together, they will confront a ghost from the past and be forced to question the people they trust most in a desperate investigation where only this is for certain - time is running out.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 1/14/2014

    " Another excellent book, a real page turner. 2nd in the Ryan Kealy series. Had my heart pumping. I don't like the ending, he left me hanging, now I can't wait to get to the next to finish the story. Too bad the author died, he was really very talented. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 1/11/2014

    " Suspenseful but first book (The American) was better. Archenemy survived from first book -- what a shock. A bit too heavy on the armaments, for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 1/7/2014

    " Saw the spine of this book when I was looking for Dan Brown book and picked it up. So glad I did- great thriller that keeps you engaged til the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/29/2013

    " Almost as good as the first one. The ending dragged a little bit but it was a really good read. I almost- ALMOST felt a smidgen of liking for Kohl and than had it all vanish rather quickly. Great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/28/2013

    " You have to be up on world events for this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 12/21/2013

    " I liked Britton's first book, "The American", better than this one only because this seemed to be too much like the first one for the first 300 or so pages. It did improve in uniqueness from there until the end, however, and I did enjoy the read. Looking forward to his next book... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa Banks-edin | 12/21/2013

    " The plot lines and pacing of this novel are tight and fast and make for an enjoyable experience. The character development is good to great, as is plot development. This adds to the overall suspense right through to the end of the novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryann | 12/8/2013

    " Good action, plot and characters. Not to happy about the f word popping up periodically, but then again that's just my preference. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dewi | 12/2/2013

    " want to know kinds of bombs or guns in us army/navy/air force? read this book.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 11/12/2013

    " Six Hundred pages and he left the reader hanging. I hate that. Some authors do that to lead into the next book, I will not be reading more from this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally Jones | 5/7/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this book. The scene setting portion of the story was slow and labourious. Over half way through the story begins to heat up but even then the action is lacking and suspense is limited. No finesse. I won't be picking up a book by this author again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 12/21/2012

    " A lot of characters to get to know. I will try the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TAMI | 8/26/2012

    " Read via book on CD. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 7/17/2012

    " This was a great continuation of The American. It was slow for the first quarter of the book - necessary periphery of the story. Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Mac | 12/26/2011

    " This book wasn't quite as good as the first book in the series, The American, but a fast read with the same lead character. Another good quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 6/30/2011

    " A good follow up to the American. It'll be interesting to read what happens in the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ocha | 6/26/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Burt | 12/30/2010

    " Not the best. Was set in modern times. But slow and overly descriptive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 10/19/2010

    " Another great book by Britton, very suspenseful. I believe there's another one in the series, can't wait to read it. Yes, I would recommend this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 4/7/2010

    " This was my least favorite of his 3 books and I'm really not sure why. I think it mostly the way the characters developed/didn't develop in this one.

    I found myself skimming more than reading during parts of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/13/2010

    " Great spy thriller. Anticipation at every page turn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 1/8/2010

    " Excellent. This is the 3rd book in the series, and I liked it as well as the first. Britton is a talented new author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 6/26/2009

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 4/7/2009

    " interesting to read the last book by Andrew Britton - good facts given the world we live in "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 2/23/2009

    " I'm reading this book and only doing so because I paid for it. As action books go, this is among the worst I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 2/17/2009

    " What a great read from such a young author. I was saddened to hear of his death, as I'm sure he would've continued to grow as a writer and storyteller, eventually earning a place right up there with the greats of the genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nos22 | 12/18/2008

    " Ok, but probably won't read him again...Plot was good, but didn't care for his writing style.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 11/6/2008

    " This is an exciting, and fast paced read. The third book in the series and it does not disapoint. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 8/5/2008

    " Not as good as The American, but I still liked the third book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jul | 5/10/2008

    " My brother got me into this series... I love a realistic thriller, but it's intense! Don't read before going to bed unless you want some seriously violent dreams! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/25/2008

    " I wanted a thriller, something that would make me want to sit in my chair (or lie on my bed) and just keep reading until the book was gone.

    this isn't it. Too formulaic. Too politically correct and rah-rah. Didn't care about any of the characters. "
