British intelligence operative and hardened assassin Max McLean must discover who is killing the members of his team in this electrifying new thriller from James Brabazon, author of The Break Line.

Soldier, assassin, and special agent Max McLean works for a highly secretive unit called the Unknown: a black-ops team that delivers off-the-books justice on behalf of the British government.

But when a straightforward operation to kill a terrorist commander goes badly wrong, Max finds himself framed for murder. Cut off from his base and cut loose by his government handlers, he’s forced to go even deeper underground, propelled across Europe on a personal, high-stakes investigation to clear his name.

Racing against time to find out who his enemy is before his enemy finds him, Max has to unravel the only clue he has to their identity: an unusual hundred-dollar bill clutched in the dead terrorist’s fist.

But in this brutal game of spies nothing is as it seems. As hostile powers prepare to move against the West, Max McLean must face the shocking possibility that the traitor he seeks has been with him all along.

Praise for The Break Line

“Breathless, complex, and seriously hard-core—don’t plan to sleep tonight.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

“A wonderfully crafted story of action, history, and secrets that is as imaginative as it is compelling.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Bishop’s Pawn

The Break Line punches you in the stomach on the first page and then plunges you—still doubled over—into the most harrowing world of covert operations I have ever read. I have worked in those places and covered those wars….Brabazon gets it exactly right. I finished the book three days ago and feel like I’m still waiting for the choppers to come take me home.”—Sebastian Junger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Storm

The Break Line is a riveting page-turner, a gruesome delight, and a study of what lies in the shadowed corners of the human heart.”—Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan X

“A natural-born writer with wit and a gift for prose; strong and lucid and nonstop suspense.”—Ted Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Overkill
