Thomas Dunne Books

Along the Afghanistan border, a CIA agent meets secretly with a distraught Arab girl. She passes him a coded message before killing herself. But before the message can be deciphered, the world spins toward war: Within hours, the president of Pakistan is assassinated, and the country's nuclear warheads go missing. Al Qaeda streams into northern Pakistan. Israel puts her combat forces on hair-trigger alert.
CIA paramilitary agent Peter Zembeic is given the impossible task of finding and destroying the missing warheads. Working with his best friend, a B-2 pilot, they develop a desperate plan to save the world from the threat of nuclear terror.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Fourth War

"Red-hot intrigue and combat action from a talented young writer."
--Stephen Coonts
"The Fourth War is a masterpiece, one that sets new techno-thriller standards. Chris Stewart's literary torque wrench cranks up the tension to an unbearable point in this stark tale of the war on terror. The Fourth War is more than a page turner, it's a mind blower as he tosses twists, turns and surprises on every page. Bound to be a movie!" --Walter Boyne

For Chris Stewart's earlier books:
"Better than Tom Clancy." --Douglas Preston
"A splendid thriller. The aerial action scenes are outstanding." --W. E. B. Griffin
"Full throttle...laced with intrigue." --Eric Harry, author of Arc Light
