As fears of a dangerous nuclear confrontation between China and the US escalate, China targets individual members of the Black Wasp team in this heart-pounding entry in the bestselling series.

After successfully extricating one of Beijing's top scientists from captivity and escorting him to America, the Black Wasp commandos find themselves targeted by Chinese assassins. The killers are not only highly trained but invisible, launching tactical strikes from multiple embassies in Washington, D.C. The Chinese squad has also infiltrated American intelligence and is aware of every move Black Wasp makes. Complicating matters, the new president of the United States seems willing to let Op Center take the fall for the mission that precipitated the crisis.

The shocking murder of one of their own forces the surviving team members to seek both a safe haven and an ally in the fight for survival -- an unexpected partner who might, in fact, be part of the problem.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rovin's 19th Op-Center series entry (following 2021's The Black Order) checks all the customary boxes, if mutedly. Things kick off after a Chinese space station destroys a manned American spacecraft, killing everyone on board, and the Op-Center, now codenamed Black Wasp, has been whittled down to five members by a multitude of enemies. The space massacre is revenge for a Black Wasp mission a year earlier in which Lt. Grace Lee abducted Yang Dayou, the chief engineer of a Chinese hypersonic missile program, and his family, and assassinated the project director. Soon, Chinese forces reduce Black Wasp's numbers even further, and Grace endures a terrible personal blow. Readers will be pleased that the ending points to a possible new structure for the Op-Center series and a return to the exceptional action of past missions, but this feels more like a placeholder than full-bore thriller. Only Clancy diehards need apply. (May)"
