U.S. Marine veteran Mason Hackett moved to London to start his life over, and he’s done his best to convince himself that what happened fifteen years ago doesn’t matter—the people he killed, the men he lost, the lives he ruined. But when Mason sees the face of a dead friend flash on a television screen and then receives a mysterious email referencing a CIA operation gone bad, he can no longer ignore his inner demons.
Driven by loyalty and a need to uncover the truth, Mason launches on a perilous journey from the Czech Republic to Romania toward the war-torn separatist region in eastern Ukraine to honor a fifteen-year-old promise. The answers he seeks—the fate of a friend and his connection to the underworld of international arms dealers and defense corporations—throw Mason into the cauldron of a covert war where no one can be trusted.
Perfect for fans of Daniel Silva and Brad Thor
“Landslide is not only a gripping geo-political thriller, but a morally-complex tale. It grapples with fraught questions of both individual and national loyalty as well as killing and the grim realities of war. I read this book over the course of two-white knuckled days that I won’t soon forget. Adam Sikes is a huge talent.” —Elliot Ackerman, New York Times best-selling author
“A gem of a read with mach-speed mayhem, loaded with rich detail from a writer who knows what he’s talking about.” —Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author
“With an irresistible hook that grabs you from the get-go, Landslide is an action-packed, nonstop espionage thrill ride that will keep you furiously turning the pages. Marine Corp veteran and former intelligence officer Adam Sikes delivers a fast-paced, gritty, supercharged read.” —Andrew Kaplan, New York Times best-selling author
"Landslide is a seismic quake of an international, high-stakes thriller in the grand tradition of Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, and Brad Taylor. Adam Sikes has penned a seminal effort that's bracingly effective in its portrayal of current geopolitical dynamics through the eyes of former Marine, and current expatriate, Mason Hackett. A terrific tapestry of a tale with the kind of stitching that would make the likes of Alistair MacLean and Frederick Forsyth take notice." —Jon Land, USA Today best-selling author
“Sikes imbues the emotionally complex Mason with a palpable sense of grief. Readers will look forward to his further adventures.”—Publishers Weekly
*“[Open Skies is] a highly readable memoir for older teens researching the fight for women’s rights around the world or looking for inspiration.” —Booklist (Starred Review)
