Description of this Book

`Ayliffe delivers a taut, nail-biting page-turner straight from the headlines, stamping his mark on the modern day thriller' John Bailey has a history of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The veteran war reporter has been kidnapped and tortured - twice. Finally he's living something that resembles a normal life. But all that changes when a terrorist murders a woman in front of Bailey in London. The mastermind behind the attack is Mustafa al-Baghdadi - No.1 on the FBI's most wanted list - and the man who tortured Bailey in Fallujah a decade ago. Mustafa has a deadly axe to grind with Bailey. He taunts Bailey with threats of more attacks in other cities, closer to home. Back in Sydney the teenage son of Bailey's old driver from Iraq is missing, and the people who matter most to Bailey have become targets. Bailey enlists the help of the only man he knows he can trust - ruthless CIA veteran Ronnie Johnson, supposedly retired - in a race against time to take down the world's most deadly terrorist, once and for all.
