Book Three in the Black Flagged Series
A tense alliance between General Sanderson and the CIA narrowly averts an apocalyptic attack by Islamic fundamentalists in Europe, but ultimately fails to recover the virus canisters. With the biological weapons still missing, the specter of an attack against the United States looms dangerously closer.
Desperate to stop Al Qaeda, Daniel Petrovich's "black ops" team is sent to investigate the last lead provided by Anatoly Reznikov, the twisted scientist responsible for designing the virus. What they uncover will shake U.S. authorities to the core.
Every canister of the Zulu Virus has been shipped to the United States...
Back in Washington D.C., this startling revelation is intensified by a grim discovery. Suspected Al Qaeda cells under FBI surveillance have been simultaneously massacred, targets of a shadowy domestic terror organization with ties to a rising political movement. When Special Agent in Charge Ryan Sharpe discovers that Al Qaeda lost possession of every virus canisters in the coordinated attack, he deploys Task Force Scorpion to hunt down a new breed of terrorist and recover the virus.
As Sharpe's task force unravels the curious fabric of True America's plot, they start to assemble the chilling details of an impending domestic bioweapons attack--on an unimaginable scale. With time expiring, and his task force running out of options, Sharpe embraces the illicit help of a sworn enemy, whose questionable tactics may be their only chance of stopping an insidious plan to destabilize the United States.
Black Flagged Apex propels the gritty, often unapologetic Black Flagged Series into new territory, where hidden agendas, startling betrayals and brutal action define the daily landscape navigated by the puppet masters and frontline operators in the war on terror.
"Apex is a racing adrenaline rush of a thriller, with something for everyone. It's got bio-terrorism, action galore, murder, mayhem, double crosses, evil bureaucrats, and clandestine operatives with nerves of steel - every ingredient that makes the genre fun to read. Konkoly more than does the subject matter justice, taking the reader on a journey they won't soon forget. A great book for escaping into a dark world of covert ops." Russell Blake, bestselling author of the JET Series and the Assassin Series.
"Konkoly is better than most of the "name brand" thriller authors out there today, and if you like a continuing series writer such as Vince Flynn and Lee Child." Amazon Reviewer 2013
"This is a well-paced, realistic action-thriller novel. A page-turner you'll thoroughly enjoy. Well worth the reader's time and money. The plots and characters are well thought out. The stories are vivid, humorous and action packed. This author doesn't disappoint!" Amazon Reviewer 2012
"I love how Konkoly creates vivid battle scenes and his use of modern technology. It's like 007 meets Jason Bourne! Start with the first book in the series and you can enjoy all 3 books. I have also found that Konkoly's writing style has become more complex and intense as his series has progressed." Amazon Reviewer 2013
"Konkoly's writing and pace have never been sharper, but what most impressed this reviewer about Apex is the keen, world-weary dialogue that takes place between longtime bureaucrats situated in high positions. It's as almost as if the author worked in one of these agencies himself." Amazon Reviewer 2013
