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.

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...
