Description

Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his war dog Kane are thrust into a global conspiracy that threatens to shake the foundations of American democracy in this second exciting Sigma Force spinoff adventure from New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Grant Blackwood.

Tucker Wayne's past and his present collide when a former army colleague comes to him for help. She's on the run from brutal assassins hunting her and her son. To keep them safe, Tucker must discover who killed a brilliant young idealist—a crime that leads back to the most powerful figures in the U.S. government.

From the haunted ruins of a plantation in the deep South to the beachheads of a savage civil war in Trinidad, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a mystery that leads back to World War II, to a true event that is even now changing the world . . . and will redefine what it means to be human.

With no one to trust, they will be forced to break the law, expose national secrets, and risk everything to stop a madman determined to control the future of modern warfare for his own diabolical ends. But can Tucker and Kane withstand a force so indomitable that it threatens our very future?

        "[A]nother outstanding adventure. Fans of Tom Clancy, Brad Thor, or Rollins' previous titles will enjoy this, and hopefully Wayne and Kane will appear again, perhaps in the next Sigma Force title." — Booklist on WAR HAWK

        "Kane, a Belgian Malinois, is the standout character, more than just a plot device and never anthropomorphized. His point-of-view chapters reveal his loyalty, fear, intelligence, and even a desire for revenge. Kane's a good boy!" — Publishers Weekly on WAR HAWK

        Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his canine partner, Kane, face a new state-of-the-art threat in bestseller Rollins and Blackwood's inventive sequel to 2014's The Kill Switch. Global media magnate Pruitt Kellerman seeks to destabilize political hot spots and murder those in his way with a fleet of military drones. Secret teams under his control use research stolen from famed WWII cryptanalyst Alan Turing to develop drones capable of thinking autonomously, hacking enemy computer systems, and instigating chaos with social media disinformation. Tucker leads a team of intelligence analysts who race to decrypt the drones' malicious code. The action ranges from the swamps of Alabama and New Mexico nuclear test sites to the beaches of Trinidad and the mountains of Serbia. Kane, a Belgian Malinois, is the standout character, more than just a plot device and never anthropomorphized. His point-of-view chapters reveal his loyalty, fear, intelligence, and even a desire for revenge. Kane's a good boy! Agent: Russell Galen, Scovil Galen Ghosh.
