Publisher's Summary

The president of the US orders Director Elizabeth Harker of the Project to investigate the collision at sea of a US Navy missile destroyer with a Chinese freighter. It may have been sabotage, and the president wants her to get to the bottom of it. But the assignment is not what it seems. Harker has an enemy in the White House who wants her to fail. The Project's continued existence is on the line.

In the cold reaches of the far north, a hidden supercomputer with malicious artificial intelligence is being used by a secret organization to drive the world to war. Disruptive attacks across the world begin to create deep suspicions between China, Russia, and America. Preparations for war escalate. As the war drums begin to beat, the Project team discovers a digital trail that could lead to whoever is trying to touch off a nuclear confrontation.

That makes the team a serious threat. They're getting too close to the truth, and the man behind the attacks decides to stop them. As the doomsday clock ticks toward zero, it's touch and go whether any of the team will get out alive, much less stop the certainty of nuclear war and mutual annihilation.

Will they survive long enough to stop the missiles from flying?

Gold Together

The team is all back together and healed, as a matter of fact someone is pregnant. But you know nothing stays quite for long, and this time is not just one county they bad guys are after it is three and they have made it a nuclear hate triangle between the USA, Russia, and China, not a good thing, but how to prove each of the three did not actually do what they are accused of doing to start this, before it gets any messier.

I don't know how Alex Lukeman does it but he has maintained the same level of action if not more, the same with suspense, and twists and the turns you have come to love from his books. But it is not like his other books as each of his books has it own life about it. If you are lucky enough to have the audio than you will know what a awesome narrator Jack de Golia is and how he can read you right into the story, you will become part of team Project while you are listening, it is so much fun, if you are listen while driving you will probably take the long way home. This author and narrator work so well together it is magic at work.

Good Series

A US Sub hits a Chinese ship, the waters are in questionable Boundaries. This is a triangle mess of power US, Russia and China. The characters are good, they have grown, matured in their responsibilities.
