Determined to halt China’s increasing dominance to the east and south, forces within Russia and the United States push the three countries to the edge of war...
Warned of a terrorist attack, the target unknown, Michael Anderson is once more drawn into a conspiracy of deceit, struggling to understand the complex games played out across three continents. His focus moves from London to Washington, the U.S. Midterm elections turning into a chaotic scramble for power as the American President’s grip on events at home and abroad rapidly spirals out of control.
In the South China Sea, Philippine protests over China’s creeping militarisation of the Spratly Islands escalate into a series of clashes, the United States’ apparent unwillingness to protect her old ally provoking an angry reaction on the streets of Washington. With Beijing and Moscow both seeking to take advantage of the internal battles within the White House, the fight for supremacy over the disputed islands threatens the President’s own survival.
Set seventeen months after the events of The Will of the People, the story brings together many of the characters from the first novel and forms the second part of the Conspiracy Trilogy.
