'Jed Walker is right there in Reacher's rear-view mirror' Lee Child, international bestselling author
In the murky world of espionage the rules of war do not apply
2005: Jed Walker has just joined the CIA. As a ten-year veteran of Air Force Special Operations, Walker is used to being at the sharp end of things. But normally the front line is much further from home.
Sent to New Orleans on the trail of some desperate Russians, he has no choice but to team up with a female British agent. As the body count grows and Hurricane Katrina hits, it's clear to Walker that no game has higher stakes. The winner takes all and he must succeed.
From Langley to Louisiana, Washington to Moscow, Jed Walker is going to be pushed to the limit - of what he can do, what he can take, and what he knows is right.
