9780006513193: State of Siege (Tom Clancy's Op-Centre, Book 6)

The sixth volume in the fast-selling series of high-tech, high-action thrillers created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik.

Tom Clancy’s Op-Centre, the series of international thrillers centred on the National Crisis Management Centre in Washington, is now firmly established as a bestselling phenomenon – a must for technothriller fans around the world.

The previous volume in the series, Balance of Power, was yet another Sunday Times top-ten bestseller. Now that remarkable record is set to continue, with a spectacular new story – State of Siege.

After years of handling some of the world’s most dangerous international crises, Paul Hood is about to step down from his position as Director of the Op-Centre – only for the latest crisis to erupt much too close to home.

A disgruntled group of ex-members of the UN peackeeping force have banded together and pulled off a series of daring robberies. Now they have devised a plan to make $100,000,000. Armed with nerve gas, they enter the UN building in New York and take ten ambassadors hostage, threatening to kill one every half-hour.

The international crisis that ensues is beyond anything that Paul Hood has ever faced before…

From the Back Cover:

VOLUME THREE IN THE TOM CLANCY’S OP-CENTRE SERIES.

Driven by greed, a group of UN peacekeeping soldiers becomes involved in activities on the wrong side of the law. When their tour of duty ends, the mayhem begins. The rogue soldiers – outfitted with stolen UN arms and ammunition – devise a shocking scheme to get the world's attention…

Meanwhile, Op-Centre head Paul Hood has cleared out his desk. But his retirement is short-lived. Demanding a quarter of a billion dollars in ransom, the assassins have taken over the UN – where ambassadors from ten nations have gathered for a gala function at which Hood's daughter will perform.

This time, it's personal. And the Op-Centre forces will strike with deadly vengeance.

A powerful profile of America's defence, intelligence and crisis management technology, 'Tom Clancy's Op-Centre' is the creation of tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik – inspiring this and other gripping novels.
