searing narrative twists, THE INVISIBLE plunges us headlong into
today’s shadowy, fever-pitched battle between terrorism and

For more than a decade, Ryan Kealey has been a key player in the
war on terror. First, as a captain in the U.S. Army’s third
Special Forces Group, then as a contract operative with the CIA.
His actions have saved thousands of lives, including that of the
U.S. President. Now once again, Kealey receives the call of duty

Tensions between Pakistan and India are at an all-time high. To
complicate matters, twelve American climbers have disappeared in
the snow-capped peaks of Pakistan’s Hindu Kush range. The
President is demanding answers, but neither government is supplying
As the conflict escalates, Brynn Fitzgerald departs Washington D.C.
on her first official trip as acting secretary of state. Her goal
is to serve as an intermediary between the leaders of both nations
as well as to ensure all efforts are being made in the search for
the missing American climbers. But when Fitzgerald’s
motorcade is ambushed on the outskirts of Islamabad, her back-up
team arrives to discover a disastrous scene: dozens are dead,
including seven diplomatic security agents, and the secretary of
state has vanished without a trace.
In the wake of the unprecedented attack, Kealey’s operation
goes into high gear. Once again, he is joined by Naomi Kharmai, the
British-born analyst who has taken on a daring new role with the
Agency. But Kharmai is becoming as unpredictable as the man
they’re going after, and as they work their way toward the
target, it becomes clear to Kealey that anyone is fair game --- and
no one can be trusted.
Thundering to a stark and chilling climax, The Invisible raises the
stakes on every page. Like Andrew Britton’s THE ASSASSIN, it
is a super-charged, fiercely intelligent international thriller
filled with shocking betrayal and, ultimately, revenge. The shocks
are felt until the very last page. Born in England, Andrew Britton
moved with his family to the United States when he was seven,
settling in Michigan, then North Carolina. After serving in the
Army as a combat engineer, Andrew entered the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he is pursuing a double major in
economics and psychology.
