The Scotland Yard Detective and FBI Agent trace a link between an alt-right militia and the CIA’s hunt for Osama bin Laden in this pre-9/11 thriller.
A CIA agent hunts Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. A female sergeant is assassinated in London. A Japanese terrorist is detonating bombs across Washington, DC And in Texas, a serial killer is murdering transients who ride the rails, until—either by mistake or design—an ill-fated English tourist is counted among the victims.
Scotland Yard’s top anti-terrorism expert, Jack Swann, and his friend, FBI Special Agent Johnny Harrison, are about to find a frightening connection between these seemingly random events. A secessionist militia in America’s heartland is amassing an army for a coming civil war calculated to divide and destroy the United States. And their next two targets are the only two men who can stop the explosive plan from going off.
Written before the events of September 11, The Covenant is a prescient view of international politics, espionage, terrorism, and the rise of the alt-right in the twenty-first century. Jeff Gulvin’s extensive research and contacts within the FBI and London’s Special Branch bring unerring authenticity to his Jack Swann novels, Nom de Guerre, and Storm Crow, which New York Times–bestselling author Jack Higgins called “absolutely marvelous. One of the best thrillers I’ve read this year.”
