Ice Islands (Hardcover)
On an inhospitable frozen island, Rake Ozenna must gain the trust of a young woman fleeing a Japanese crime empire and caught in the crosshairs of the Russian government.
"Another outstanding geopolitical thriller in Hawksley's excellent Rake Ozenna series . . . carefully researched, action-packed, and suspenseful" -Booklist Starred Review
Major Rake Ozenna's mission is simple: gain access to the Kato family - Japan's most dangerous crime empire.
But when the secret son of the Russian leader is executed and Rake's target, Sara Kato, is implicated in the murder, a political crisis between Russia, Japan and the US is set in motion.
As Rake learns the true extent of their deadly plans, he must draw on every ounce of his training to succeed. Because if he fails, it won't just be his life that will be lost . . . the consequences will be global.
