Fan favorites Preston and Child take a break from their Agent Pendergast novels to start a planned 12-book series about a new hero, Gideon Crew. The novel has been optioned by action-movie director Michael Bay, which tells you all you need to know about the pulse-pounding thrills to be found on every page of this exciting novel.

While fulfilling a promise to his mother to avenge his father’s death, Gideon gets the opportunity to become a private operative. His first assignment is to retrieve the plans for a terrifying new weapon of mass destruction from a rogue Chinese scientist. When the scientist is murdered, the plans vanish, and Gideon follows clues that lead from New York to Hong Kong to Dubai, ultimately ending up on an uninhabited island in the Long Island Sound where he discovers that the weapon is something far more frightening than anyone realized.
