The Sea Rats

(Book 23 in the Matt Drake series)
A novel by

Following the ruthless hijacking of a cruise liner by Somalian pirates in the Indian Ocean, Matt Drake and his Special Forces team are thrust into a gripping new mission. A mission made even deadlier by the return of the world's most extreme and infamous assassin - The Devil.

Split apart by the twin demands of infiltrating the ship disguised as passengers, and launching a direct attack on the pirates' land-based shanty town HQ, it quickly becomes apparent that the hijacking is a ruse to conceal a far more disturbing and sinister operation. What are the pirates really looking for aboard the ocean liner?

An old KBG informer, partly responsible for the Soviet Union's downfall, disappeared thirty years ago, escaping first from KGB and then CIA custody. He is onboard and the Devil will do anything to get him.

As the tension reaches breaking point, as the hostages face increasing violence, and Special Forces head for land and sea, an infinitely more terrifying threat is uncovered...

Bombs have been attached to the ship's hull... and nothing can stop them from detonating...
