Zero HourBook - 2010
A code which will jam every item of military hardware from Kabul to Washington...On 5 September 2007, Israeli jets bombed a suspected nuclear installation in northeastern Syria. Syrian radar - supposedly state-of-the-art - had failed to warn the target of the incoming assault. A system on the verge of collapse...Unknown to anyone but the Israelis and the radar's manufacturers, the commercial, off-the-shelf microprocessors within it contained a remotely accessible kill switch. A terrorist group who nearly have it in their hands...Now British Intelligence has discovered that the same switches are at the heart of every electronic device in the UK and US arsenal. It will take years to replace the components. So they must deactivate the man who controls them instead. And a soldier who wants to go down fighting...Ex-SAS deniable operator Nick Stone is tasked to find and kill him - but this time he's not on 'receive'. For once, his life is under threat for another reason - from within. And now he really is a man with nothing to lose...
