‘It grips like a python from the first page, squeezing the breath out of the reader’ DAILY MAIL

‘Outstanding’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘Breathless action’ THE TIMES

Hidden from prying Western satellites, Iranian scientists are at 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 the rendezvous with SIS officer Luke Carlton goes bloodily wrong . . .

Then 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 . . .

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'

“Guaranteed Page Turner !”

It might be a rather well used phrase but Ultimatum cannot be put down until it's finished ! Having read and enjoyed Crisis on holiday last year (it was in the AirBNB when we got there), I had to get hold of this... More
