Terry Hayes, author of the bestseller I Am Pilgrim, returns with a terrifying and eagerly awaited new thriller. CIA Agent Kane travels to the badlands of Afghanistan: a place where violence is the only way to survive. He must exfiltrate a man with vital information for the safety of the West—but instead he meets an adversary who will take the world to the brink of extinction. A frightening, clever, vicious man with blood on his hands and vengeance in his heart.
