This is an absolutely absolutely fantastic book. I love this series!!! The rather dramatic cover reflects accurately the awesome story you'll find inside when you open it up. Paul Richter is in on a police attack upon a terrorists hideout near Geneva, which goes horribly wrong. Unexpectedly accused of murder, he flees the country while his boss works on persuading his opposing number that using Richter as a scapegoat is a stupid move. A second attack on a terrorist hideout, found with a mysterious tip off, goes wrong again. Hunting desperately for a pattern, Richter discovers an incredible plot.

Perhaps the best thing about the series is the realism of both plots, which feel like they could actually happen (I'm still mulling over the one in Pandemic...), action that is both tense and realistic, and character. I don't think there's really anything else to say. You should all read it and find out the plot for the largest ever non-nuclear explosion, and the result of its discovery... I don't want to spoil it for you.
