Stratton’s sixth adventure comes to a ripping climax in the heart of Russia, far below ground
After a surveillance mission in Sevastopol goes badly wrong, Stratton finds himself doing penance at MI16, the government’s clandestine organization that creates weapons equipment for special forces and the secret service. But Sevastopol has started something. In the North Sea a team of hijackers take over the giant Morpheus oil platform, demanding two billion dollars within 24 hours—or the bodies will start falling. With the SBS overstretched and its surveillance team locked down, there is only one option: Stratton and a team of unproven MI16 operatives. Stratton knows he has to redeem himself and he also has his own agenda. One of the men on the rig is an old friend, and Stratton intends to save him. But one member of Stratton’s team has their own deadly agenda, and Morpheus is just the beginning.
