William H. Hallahan
“Hallahan graduates to the Ludlum-Follett class of writers with this crackling good thriller” (Publishers Weekly).
In this brilliant thriller set against the chilling background of the international arms trade, a former American intelligence agent is killed in the Paris Metro. He dies talking of the Doomsday Book. This deadly document is the inspiration for twenty years of plotting by some of the most influential elements of Germany’s arms business. It contains a sinister plan that, if unleashed, could plunge the United States, Russia, and China into a World War III.
US agent Charlie Brewer and Colin Thomas, a shrewd, gritty international trader in everything from hand grenades to jet fighters, find themselves desperately dueling with the brilliant daughter of Germany’s leading intelligence officer as they slowly penetrate a shocking worldwide conspiracy.
“Puts William Hallahan up above Le Carré, Deighton and Co.” —The Bookseller
