Summary
"Cyber-war. Not the sort that steals identities and raids bank accounts but the kind that brings nations to their knees, switching off their energy lifelines, crippling financial markets, starving their leaders of authority, making populations panic. Much of the world is being dragged to the brink of chaos, but no one knows - yet - who is responsible." "Hidden far away, in a castle on the west coast of Scotland, an extraordinary meeting is about to take place. Under conditions of the most compelling secrecy the two leaders of Britain and Russia gather with the most powerful woman in the world, the President of the United States, to combat the threat. Yet they bring with them old wounds and personal agendas that split them apart. Harry Jones, the SAS-trained politician, is with them and in the few crucial hours they have to decide the fate of the planet, he must try to save them from themselves. Terrifying decisions have to be made. Not everyone can survive."--BOOK JACKET
