Hayden Stone is brought back into the CIA to help navigate the choppy diplomatic waters between the U.S., Canada, England, South Africa, and any number of other players in a mission to prevent the worst of weapons from falling into the wrong hands. While representatives from other countries are there to help him, Hayden knows the only person he can trust is himself, and that once the weapon is located, all bets are off.
“Not only is The Africa Conflict a great read, but you know that with Art Kerns’ FBI/CIA background he really knows what he’s writing about.”
M. A. Lawson award winning author of Rosrito Beach
“An intelligent, masterfully-crafted, and all too plausible spy novel that will thrill fans of Olan Steinhauer and Daniel Silva. The African Contract hooked me from the start and kept me up late. Hayden Stone – part James Bond, part Jack Reacher, isn’t afraid to mix it up, but cleans up well in this action-packed, multi-layered romp through the African continent as he searches, literally, for a ticking bomb. If you’re a fan of spy novels. The African Contract should be next on your reading list.”
Robert Dugoni, New York Times Bestselling Author of Murder One and The Conviction.
