John Stratton

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


After the British military lose an officer to Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, a desperate race begins to find his killers. Little do the assailants know that the precious information they have stolen could bring down the entire network of Western intelligence in the Mid-East. But then one of them is captured by US troops and flown to the States for interrogation.
And so begins a nail-biting, claustrophobic and explosive thriller that will ultimately lead British operative John Stratton to the Styx penitentiary, America's undersea prison. How do you break in to a jail a hundred metres below the ocean? Can Stratton get the information back without the US discovering him? And is everyone in the prison really who they seem to be?
With its labyrinthine narrative and authentic detail, its CIA plots and White House agents, this fourth thriller in the Stratton series will catapult Duncan Falconer right into the top tier.

From Publishers Weekly

23 February 2009 – In Falconer's mediocre fourth contemporary thriller to feature Special Boat Services operative John Stratton (after The Operative), a lucky missile strike downs a British helicopter in Afghanistan. From the wreckage, the Taliban retrieve a security case containing a computer chip with data on 1,443 indigenous British- and U.S.-run agents and informants throughout the Middle East. A doctor implants the chip in the body of a Taliban fighter, Durrani, who later winds up in American custody. Fearing embarrassment if the Yanks discover the chip, MI6 send Stratton after Durrani, who's confined in Styx, a secret prison 300 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico for highest-category prisoners and since the announced closure of Guant namo... a terrorist-detention centre. In order to infiltrate Styx, Stratton takes the place of a look-alike inmate, Nathan Charon, who's being transferred there. Fans of cartoonish action yarns will be the most satisfied.
