An electrifying thriller – the first in a blistering series for readers of Brad Thor, Tom Clancy and Daniel Silva
Tom Locke is an elite warrior working for Apollo Outcomes, one of the world’s most successful private contracting firms. Pulled out of a mission in Libya, he is tapped for an unusual and risky assignment: a top secret black op in Ukraine.
Given one week to rescue an oligarch’s family and pull off a spectacular assault, he soon realises his mission has repercussions for this imperiled Eastern European nation and the world.
What Locke doesn’t know is that the operation comes with a dangerous complication: his enigmatic and ambitious boss, Brad Winters. One misstep could cost Locke – and the region – everything.
Written by an army veteran with deep military expertise, Shadow War is an explosive and unputdownable thriller.
