Hawk Hunter must stop a super-weapon before it reaches America’s shores: “The best high-action thriller writer out there today, bar none” (Jon Land). Low on fuel while patrolling the South Pacific, Captain “Crunch” O’Malley has no choice but to touch down on Xmas Island, a capitalist’s paradise, where anything can be bought or sold. On his first fly-by, he finds the hedonistic hot spot is nothing more than a blackened hole in the ground. A weapon of extreme power has wiped out every trace of life on the island, and the United States could be next. The carnage was wreaked by a battleship armed with an array of sixteen-inch cannons that, in a matter of minutes, could obliterate any city on Earth. As far as Hawk Hunter is concerned, that constitutes a direct threat to the West Coast. And so, as he has done so many times before, he will suit up and defend the nation that he loves. The Ghost War is the eleventh book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.

The news-breaking book that has sent schockwaves through the White House, Ghost Wars is the most accurate and revealing account yet of the CIA's secret involvement in al-Qaeada's evolution.

Here he gives the full inside story of the CIA's covert funding of an Islamic jihad against Soviet forces in Afghanistan, explores how this sowed the seeds of bn Laden's rise, traces how he built his global network and brings to life the dramatic battles within the US government over national security. Above all, he lays bare American intelligence's continual failure to grasp the rising threat of terrrorism in the years leading to 9/11 - and its devastating consequences.
