"The face of war is changing.
The other side doesn''t play by the rules much
There's thinking, in some circles,
that we need to play by a different set of rules too
James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the
Afghan war, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in
the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6 and the
Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: To
protect the Realm, by any means necessary.
A Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a
beautiful woman. Headquarters has decrypted an electronic whisper
about an attack scheduled for later in the week:
Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests
And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche to do
whatever it takes to fulfill his mission . . .
The new thriller by Master of the Mind Game
as you've never seen him before.
