"Deftly plotted and compellingly readable, Kerns takes his readers into the shadowy world of international terrorism " (Sheldon Siegel, New York Times - bestselling author of Perfect Alibi).

After a mission in Afghanistan leads to the death of a colleague, CIA agent Hayden Stone accepts what he thinks is a cushy assignment in the South of France. But on the Cote d'Azur, two terrorists, acting separately, attempt to murder him. Meanwhile, Stone meets an old love, a contessa, who he had seduced and abandoned years before.

As Stone's love life heats up, he learns that a brutal Middle Eastern terrorist is in Provence to deliver a strain of the Ebola virus to major US cities. At the same time, the CIA and French intelligence have targeted a seriously ill al Qaeda functionary who is seeking medical attention in Nice. Caught up in a web of international intrigue, Stone finds himself on the front lines of the War on Terror.

"A modern thriller that echoes today's headlines. Populated with fascinating characters and tightly plotted with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end . . . [A] first-rate debut novel." - D.P. Lyle, Macavity Award - winning author of the Jake Longly Series

"Arthur Kerns draws from a career in counterintelligence and counterterrorism to write nonstop action and create an irrepressible hero in Hayden Stone." - Kirk Russell, bestselling author of Gone Dark
