—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Omega Factor on Sundance Revenge

About the Book

Book 2 in the new Belle Bannon Series

The sister of troubled former combat Marine Belle Bannon is kidnapped. Belle has 72 hours to decode a series of obscure Comanche beaded symbols on a war lance, or her sister will die. Belle learns the symbols lead to the location of a valuable mysterious Chinese jade box.

Belle's search for clues takes her across the dusty plains of west Texas, through New Mexico's labyrinth of caverns, and deep into the fetid Louisiana bayou. But Belle faces an impossible dilemma: if she beats the ticking clock, finds the jade box, and saves her sister, the end result could be nuclear war with China.
