In the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks, spymaster Janos Ilin delivers a chilling message to Jake Grafton: a rogue Russian general has sold four nuclear warheads to radical Islamic terrorist group the Sword of Islam, which intends to detonate them in America in the ultimate terror strike.Charged with finding the warheads before America is consumed by nuclear holocaust, Grafton soon finds himself up to his neck in power politics, techno-billionaires, money-grubbing traitors, anarchists and spies as he hunts for the terrorists, who, as he quickly discovers, don't all come from the Middle East.

She is a 200-year-old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood.
