Beschreibung

One of the greatest relics in all of Islam-a treasure with the power to alter the course of history for Afghanistan and the world-is stolen from its guarded mosque in Kandahar. A week later, a CIA asset with knowledge of its whereabouts is murdered in a quiet Virginia suburb outside of D.C. Now it is up to Destin Saunders, a rogue agent suspended from active duty, to find Charles Phelan-a discharged U.S. Army shipping clerk from Boston and the only person who may hold the key to the relic's whereabouts. In order to succeed, Saunders is forced to rely on Phelan's sister Cianna-a disgraced former war hero and convicted murderer-to track her brother through the warrens of Boston's clannish underworld, and uncover an international conspiracy at the highest levels of the U.S. security community. If they fail, the future of Afghanistan and the uncertain peace in the Middle East hangs in the balance. Even if they succeed, though, there is no telling whether they can survive.

Klappentext

When a CIA informant from Kandahar is gunned down in a suburban area of Virginia outside D.C., special Agent Jack Saunders is tasked with uncovering a plot that could alter the fate of Afghanistan and unsettle a tepid peace in the Middle East. But when a raid on a radical safe house goes horribly wrong, Jack finds himself without support within his own government.

Determined to find answers on his own, Jack enlists the aid of Cianna Phelan, a disgraced former war hero trying to put her life back together. When Cianna's brother, Charlie, returns to South Boston from active duty in Afghanistan and immediately goes missing, Cianna and Jack find themselves in a race against time not only to save his life, but to prevent an international conspiracy at the highest levels of the US intelligence community. As lives are lost in the warrens of Boston's clannish underworld, Jack and Cianna realize they are on the trail of one of the most sacred artefacts in all of Islam. And when the bullets start to fly, they realize they can never know whom to trust, and nothing is what it seems.

Praise for David Hosp

'Red-hot fiction rooted in stone-cold fact - a legal thriller to rival the best from Grisham or Turow'

Lee Child

'It is the detail and subplots that make Hosp such a gripping writer. He creates real dilemmas for his characters and saves the most touching resolution to the very end... Hosp is growing and developing with each new book'
