________ `Crisis . . . was much admired . . . the second in his Luke Carlton series is even better' SUNDAY TIMES _________ HIDDEN FROM PRYING WESTERN SATELLITES, IRANIAN SCIENTISTS WORK ON A BANNED DEVICE. They are acting on the orders of a renegade cell within Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, whose objective is to transform their country into a nuclear-armed nation, and so seal its domination of the Middle East. Britain's intelligence agencies know something is up. Someone on the inside is ready to hand over information - but then the rendezvous with SIS officer Luke Carlton goes bloodily wrong. Luke needs to be extracted. Fast. Forced on to the back foot after that fiasco, MI6 sees an opportunity to recruit an individual with unique access to the IRGC hardliners. Luke is chosen to reel them in. Going into Iran undercover is dangerous enough, but then there's a killing and a kidnapping and the British government is presented with a shocking ultimatum. With time running out, it seems only Luke can stop a cataclysmic new war in the Gulf . . . ________ `Skilfully mixes knowledge garnered as the BBC's security correspondent with breathless action' THE TIMES Don't miss Frank Gardner's first Luke Carlton thriller - the No. 1 bestselling Crisis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Confirms Frank Gardner's place among the pantheon of distinguished reporters who have become excellent thriller writers, including Gerald Seymour and Frederick Forsyth . . . utterly authentic . . . it grips like a python from the first page, squeezing the breath out of the reader." * DAILY MAIL *
"Outstanding." * SUNDAY TIMES *
"Frank Gardner's second thriller is even closer than his first, Crisis, to dealing with the world's most immediate fears . . . current international events do not necessarily turn into exciting novels, but Gardner skilfully mixes knowledge garnered as the BBC's security correspondent with breathless action." -- Marcel Berlins * THE TIMES *
"Lots of twists and turns and a surprise ending. Good stuff." -- Frederick Forsyth * DAILY MAIL *
"Crisis, the debut two years ago by the BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner, was much admired, and the second in his Luke Carlton series is even better . . . its themes of Iranian bomb production and divisions in the country's elite have great topicality." -- John Dugdale * SUNDAY TIMES 'Thriller of the Month' *
