From Ken Follett--the #1 name in electrifying international suspense--comes a remarkable novel of intrigue and doomsday possibilities.

The world's balance of power is about to shift dangerously as the ultimate weapon nears completion in a secret facility in the heart of the desert. Across the globe, operatives from the great nations set a deadly game in motion, covertly maneuvering pawns and kings to achieve a frightening advantage--while terrorists and their hunters prepare for the contest's final, bloody moves. And one man--a razor-sharp master of disguise, deceit, and triple-cross--must somehow do the impossible: steal 200 tons of uranium without any of the other players discovering the theft.

The clock is ticking.

And the price of failure is Apocalypse.

"It was never determined what had actually happened to the 200 tons of uranium", but three countries know the truth. Three young men met decades ago and now world events have cast them as adversaries. Nat, Israel's hero, known as 'The Pirate', stages a daring nuclear exploit. Breathing down his neck, the KGB's Rostov and Egyptian intelligence's Yassif. A furious race against time builds to an extraordinary climax on a doomed cargo boat.
