A struggle for power rumbles at the highest levels of the Central Committee of the People's Republic of China in Beijing.

A growing threat from China leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in this continuation of internationally bestselling Tom Clancy series.

On the fringes of the Pacific Ocean, a catastrophic explosion destroys a Chinese container ship.

In Texas a solitary Highway Patrol trooper stops on a deserted road to find a young Hispanic girl with no identity, a murky history and information to kill for.

In the White House, President Jack Ryan faces his toughest negotiation yet.

Amid a web of coincidences and connections, it soon becomes clear a series of incidents around the world are connected. And at the centre of the web is a threat as dangerous as anything Jack Ryan has faced before . . .

PROLOGUE

A dozen men clad in bright orange coveralls and white hardhats swarmed the decks of CGSL Orion, the 396-meter flagship of China Global Shipping Lines, like ants.
