Have a safe jump, Mr Corey.
Detective John Corey is floating to earth, his skydiver’s parachute billowing above him. His wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, is mere metres away, beneath a chute of her own. And clinging to Kate in mid-air, aiming a knife at her throat and Glock at Corey, is the most dangerous man alive: Asad Khalil, code name The Lion – infamous terrorist, ice-blooded assassin, and Corey’s greatest nemesis. It’s been three years since Corey last traded words – and bullets – with The Lion, who vanished after a devastating attack on American soil. But with Khalil’s spectacular return, the threat of a terrorist apocalypse now darkens the globe. The Lion wants revenge. And with Kate’s life in the balance, so does Corey.
