When a band of CIA agents goes rogue—breaking all of the rules while on an anti-terrorist mission in the Sudan—a deadly drone falls into the wrong hands. Enter Director Jonathon Reid, who is suddenly in the dark about the details behind this catastrophic mistake. The closer he gets to uncovering what went wrong, the more he realizes that there’s something sinister going on at the CIA, and forces are aligned to make sure he doesn’t find out the truth.


In Raven Strike, find out why Clive Cussler calls Dale Brown “the best military adventure writer in the country,” then explore his other pulse-pounding adventures.
