Synopsis

The Edge (Striker 3) by Nick Hale

International football meets the world of espionage and counter-terrorism in a nail-biting action thriller! Jake can't believe he's been scouted for Olympic Advantage.

His dad has come along but promises to stay behind the scenes; this is Jake's moment. But the sunny Florida camp is hiding a nasty secret. The German weight-lifter is crushed by a barbell, painkillers are being issued illegally and many of the athletes are getting seriously aggressive. Jake knows something is up, and he's in the perfect position to report back to MI6. It's his first mission on his own. Popov will be watching...
