New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler.



In this compelling Thriller Short from New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver, the stakes in counterterrorism are raised high. Retired Colonel James J. Peterson—head of a covert, illegal, intelligence-gathering operation known as IAS—is briefed on a national security threat that could unleash a weapon capable of “significant damage.” But what kind of weapon is it? Conventional? A nuke? Or something altogether new? And who’s behind the threat? Al-Qaeda? The Koreans? The Iranians? It’s up to Colonel Peterson’s IAS black site operation to find out who’s behind the threat, and to neutralize the weapon before it’s unleashed on the United States. The problem? He only has four days to do it.
