Following their military defeat in the Battle of Taiwan, China opens a new front in the struggle for geopolitical supremacy.

As China's Belt and Road Initiative brings together the final pieces of a 1000-mile rail and road connection between China and Tehran, a series of terrorist attacks rock the fractious states of Central Asia. A declining Russia, an isolated India, and a rising Iran all have a stake in the region.

But who is behind the mysterious attacks?

President Serrano, in the midst of another election cycle, just wants the problem to disappear. He puts his trust in Don Riley, the newly appointed CIA Deputy Director of Operations, to deal with the situation.


As tensions escalate, Don leads a covert action to protect America’s interests in the region and blunt the Chinese economic juggernaut. What he discovers threatens to drag the United States into another international conflict.

Covert Action is a high-stakes military thriller from the minds of former submarine officer David Bruns and retired naval intelligence officer J.R. Olson. Packed with propulsive action and pulse-pounding intrigue, this explosive and timely thriller is a must-read for fans of Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney.
