An exhilarating new tale of modern espionage and flying adventure featuring US Navy intelligence officer Alan Craik - sure to appeal to the many fans of Tom Clancy, Dale Brown and Patrick Robinson.During a fleet exercise in India, Alan Craik faces a minefield of explosive events that threaten to tear the country and a US battlegroup apart. A military base is attacked by 'fringe elements'; an Indian submarine mutinies and then shoots down a US Navy aircraft and a group of Indian scientists are killed when they are attacked with Sarin gas.Craik, ignoring the conventional wisdom that the incidents are unrelated, believes that a fanatical group have control of certain elements of both the Indian government and its armed forces.Then the rebels seize part of India's nuclear arsenal. Suddenly, a U.S. carrier battle group joins Pakistan, China, and Saudi Arabia on the target list.The world is faced with the spectacle of a nuclear-capable nation in the hands of a self-destructive religious cult, and it's up to Craik and a team of specialists to re-capture the nukes and prevent massive devastation.But with time running out and the cult leader still at large, are they already too late?

Here's what you say about us...

Gordon Kent is the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have considerable experience in the US Navy. The idea for Night Trap was born out of a series of fishing and hiking trips together.

Their interests, many of which are shared, include military matters, Africa, antiques, book collecting, war gaming and theatre. Both now live in the USA.

'Kent knows his subject at first hand and the expertise shows on the page: high stakes, pounding tension and the best dogfights put on paper. A lot of thrillers these days, you come away feeling like you've been in a simulator. Gordon Kent straps you into the real thing. Enjoy the ride!'
IAN RANKIN, on Night Trap

'Flying, spying and dying - Night Trap is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair. I loved it.'
STEPHEN COONTS

'Tom Clancy used to have the high-tech military thriller stakes all to himself but now Gordon Kent has entered the field, and how. There's action on all fronts with Alan Craik at the heart of it, whether it's a carrier group in the Med confronting a rogue Russian sub commander, mounting a rescue mission for a captured CIA agent in Africa, or helping combat a high-level conspiracy in Washington. Non-stop . a smoking gun of a story.'
Northern Echo, on Peacemaker
