London. July 2012. The British capital prepares for the greatest show in its history – the Olympic Games.
Alex Marden and Jack Rogan, operatives for Unit Five, NATO’s Black Ops specialists, have been working undercover to secure the Games against a lethal terror group plotting to destroy the spectacle.
Jack uncovers a conspiracy – a sleeper insider the security team who is working with the terrorists to release a deadly nerve gas inside the Stadium itself.
But no one in the security services will listen to him.
With hours to go before the Olympics opens, Jack and Alex go rogue – working solo to prevent an attack that would kill the 80,000 spectators as well as the world leaders gathered in the Stadium for the Opening Ceremony.
Soon their own lives are on the line in a deadly race against time – in which no one can be trusted.
Black Ops: Olympics is the third in Matt Lynn’s brilliant series of action-adventure thrillers ripped straight from the headlines.
