A group of disgruntled Russian supremos decide the time has come to deploy their secret nuclear arsenal, and so team up with al-Qaeda in order to neutralise America and take political and economic control of western Europe. Only one man can stop them - a British agent called Paul Richter.

As a Special Operations Officer working for British Intelligence, Richter discovers that Europe has been seeded with neutron bombs, while more lethal nuclear devices have been planted in strategic cities throughout America, which can be detonated by satellite at any moment. Now the US government is about to be handed an ultimatum - abandon Western Europe to the Russian forces or see millions of its citizens destroyed. But what the renegade Russians don't realise is their own allies' even deadlier agenda.

Just finished reading OVERKILL, and I have to say, its the best book I have read for a very long time. Its a very complicated and long plot, but I hope that some bright spark in Hollywood, can condense it into a 2hr classic thriller.
