When a high-level intelligence source reveals that Iranian agents are planning to bomb the United Nations, US Intelligence begins desperate counter-measures. Only maverick CIA agent, Ryan Kealey, sees it as a smokescreen for another, far more terrifying plot. But no-one is prepared to follow his hunch. Worse still, it would seem that even the halls of the CIA are no longer safe from possible espionage and treason. Meanwhile a weapon of catastrophic power is smuggled into the US, in the hands of an international criminal mastermind. A man who will stop at nothing to inflict total devastation on his chosen target, and a man who is a vengeful shadow from Kealey's past . . . Kealey must battle against all odds while the clock is ticking down towards an act of unholy terror...

Andrew Britton is in his twenties. Born in England, he moved with his family to the United States when he was seven. After serving in the US armed forces as a combat engineer, Andrew entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he is a junior pursuing a double major in Economics and Psychology.From AudioFile:
This second thriller from 24-year-old Andrew Britton almost measures up to its predecessor and it's got enough action to keep Christopher Lane very busy. The CIA agent Robin Kealey is up against an old nemesis who was thought to be dead in the final moments of The American, Britton's first novel. While most officials in this story believe the Iranian regime has plans to bomb the UN, Kealey sets out to uncover an even greater catastrophe in the making. Lane's reading of this story is glib and fast paced. His only near failing comes when he reads one of the many Arab characters, whose accent sounds contrived.
