Someone is killing members of America's most elite kill/capture military team.

A deadly fall on a rugged stretch of California coast. A home invasion gone wrong in Virginia. These deaths seem unrelated, but the victims are living undercover, their true identities closely-held secrets. Now someone is assassinating them, one by one, taking family and innocent bystanders as well to make the killings seem like accidents.

Captain John Hayes, a Special Operations legend, has left the military to settle down quietly, for good, with his family. But when he pieces together the pattern behind the murders, discovering that his protégée, a brilliant assassin named Claire Rhodes, is the prime suspect, he returns to duty to hunt down the attackers.

The killers strike ever more boldly as they conspire to draw Hayes and his fellow soldiers into Manhattan, where they can all be eliminated in a single devastating attack. To save his teammates and thousands of innocent lives, Hayes must find a way to stop a seemingly unstoppable weapon.

Dead Man Switch delivers non-stop twists, turns, and action in a high-stakes thriller about what happens when the fight abroad follows our covert operators home.
