A world-renowned Israeli bio-scientist is kidnapped, and only SEAL Petty Officer Tony Chase and his elite team have any chance of saving him.
This is no ordinary scientist, for he is in process of developing a new and virulent strain of a deadly virus. Undetectable, yet deadly. The perfect stealth weapon capable of wreaking unparalleled mass destruction. The perpetrators are no ordinary kidnappers. They are Russians, led by renegade General Viktor Primakov, anxious to enhance his reputation and his nation’s arsenal with a new and terrifying weapon.
SEAL Petty Officer Tony Chase is handed the assignment, and he has a personal reason to succeed. Primakov, a man he holds culpable for the death of his parents. A man he wants dead. He leads his small team on a mission to recover the scientist. He is held prisoner in a makeshift laboratory inside a fortress said to be impregnable. A fortress on an island outside the port of St Petersburg, in Northern Russia. The name – Kronstadt.
The difficulties of making entry to the heavily guarded island mean the mission was always unlikely to succeed. Despite the odds they make it inside and spirit the scientist away. To the shores of St Petersburg, the heavily guarded headquarters of the Russian Navy. Pursued by an army of vengeful Russians, they battle to stay alive. Stay alive and complete the mission. For the fortress laboratory is still intact. The Russians could recover the work on the bioweapon. Until they get back inside and destroy it, the threat is still extant. And General Primakov still lives.
SEAL Strike: Fortress is new, the first FULL LENGTH SEAL Strike novel. A collaboration between Todd McLeod and Eric Meyer, the bestselling author of more than fifty war novels. Don’t miss it.
