The new blockbuster from bestselling author Chris Ryan.
 
Blackout -- three cities all lose power. No-one claims responsibility. Fears of a terrorist strike are imminent.
 
Josh Harding is a tough SAS soldier. Yet his disregard for authority has landed him a secondment to MI6's anti-terrorism unit. In the wake of the mysterious 'Three Cities' attacks, Josh finds himself on the way to the USA, on the trail of a pair on intrepid young hackers who are out to try and make themselves a fortune, and who are in grave danger from those who would kill for the secrets they have managed to uncover -- how to control the power of the Western world.
 
But soon Josh finds himself waking up in a ditch bloody and wounded, and with no memory of who he is, how he got there, or how he got hurt.
 
Yet one thing is for certain -- Josh is in danger.
 
Stranded in the Wild West, Josh must rely on his instincts as a soldier and on the kindness of a beautiful stranger in order to escape those who appear intent on tracking him down and killing him -- all for a secret he can't remember. His determination to discover who he is, and what he was doing there leads him into an explosive web of corporate blackmail, deceit and greed -- where the stakes are high and where no-one can be trusted.

From the Back Cover:

London. Paris. New York. One by one the power systems get swtiched off in three of the world's major cities, plunging them into darkness and chaos.

Is this the greatest terrorist spectacular since 9/11?

Josh Harding, a battle-hardened SAS soldier, is working undercover on anti-terrorist operations, tracking the leaders of al-Qaeda.

He wakes up in a ditch in the wilderness of Arizona. Two bullets have shot up his leg and his neck.

His memory is gone.

And the police are hunting him for murder.

As Josh struggles to recover his memory, and to stay one step ahead of the police, he finds himself drawn into a deadly conspiracy. To stay alive, he must find out who he is, and why he was shot. And who is turning off the power around the world.

Blackout is a terrifyingly realistic story of what happens when technology and terrorism combine.

CHRIS RYAN was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also Sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq, of which three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal. For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS.
