As bombs explode across Washington, the FBI must look abroad for help[
The FBI is the most capable agency in the United States when it comes to investigating and eliminating domestic threats. But when Japanese terrorists start detonating bombs in the nation’s capital, the FBI finds itself remarkably ill equipped for the task at hand. Turning abroad for help, the Bureau finds the best man for the job: Jack Swann, Scotland Yard’s top antiterrorism expert. With this entry in his Harrison and Swann thriller series, Jeff Gulvin creates a diverse literary universe. The Covenant smoothly transitions between characters and storylines: from an English tourist’s ill-fated trip to Texas to the efforts of a secessionist militia in Oregon; from a series of deaths on Capitol Hill meant to provoke civil war to the struggles of a CIA agent to hunt down and find Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. Written before the events of September 11, The Covenant is a prescient and pointed view of international politics and espionage in the twenty-first century.
