WHERE DO YOU TURN WHEN YOUR COUNTRY TURNS ON YOU?
Marc Dane is a MI6 field agent at home behind a computer screen, one step away from the action. But when a brutal attack on his team leaves Marc as the only survivor - and with the shocking knowledge that there are traitors inside MI6 - he's forced into the front line.
But when the evidence seems to point towards Marc as the perpetrator of the attack, he is accused of betraying his country and must race against time to clear his name.
With nowhere to turn to for help and no one left to trust, Marc is forced to rely on the enigmatic Rubicon group and their operative Lucy Keyes. Ex-US Army, Lucy also knows what it's like to be an outsider, and she's got the resources that Marc is sorely lacking.
A terrorist attack is coming, one bigger and more deadly than has ever been seen before. With the eyes of the security establishment elsewhere, only Lucy and Marc can stop the attack before it is too late...

- Rhianna Pratchett, WGA Award-winning writer
of Tomb Raider and Mirror's Edge.
'Exciting and thought-provoking in equal
measure, NOMAD is a thinking reader's white knuckle thrill ride. James Swallow
has written a benchmark technothriller for the 21st century, one that's as
engrossing as it is plausible.'

and The Division.
