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.

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...
