A race against time in the Middle East Hauled back from an exercise with the SAS, Paul Richter is tasked with a short-notice extraction job. It goes well and as a reward he's given an easy job: investigating James Holden, a middle-aged Englishman living in Dubai, who appears to predict terrorist attacks. It should be simple -- a break in the sun and a couple of days' work -- but, almost as soon as he arrives in Dubai, Richter is diverted to Bahrain. Then it all begins to get complicated. Who is the secretive patient in the nearby Manama hospital? Who slaughtered a dozen people at a remote stable in Saudi Arabia, seemingly just to steal one horse? And why has a US State Department jet carrying a specialist CIA team been diverted to Cairo? Nothing makes sense until Richter finally uncovers the outline of a truly catastrophic plot ... The final Paul Richter novel is an utterly exhilarating and no-holds-barred thriller with a race-against-time series ending that will leave you stunned.
