Selected by The Sunday Times as one of the four top thrillers of the year, JERICHO'S WAR is the new paperback from 'the best thriller writer in the world' (Daily Telegraph).
In a moment of nerve-shredding suspense that will affect many thousands of lives, a handful of men and women converge on a barren stretch of Yemeni desert. The mission is to take down a high-value player in the war against Al-Qaeda. It is the brainchild of an old, fat fool called Jericho.
In his striped cricket blazer, never without a G&T, he is a sweating figure of fun among the ex-pats across the border in Muscat. Yet perhaps he is not quite as old, or foolish, or even fat as he appears. Nor as harmless...
Welcome to Jericho's War: its weaponry is state-of-the-art, its brutality as timeless as the desert.
