From the mines of remote India, to the streets of Paris and the lights of Las Vegas, Danielle Leaf is pursued by a terrible secret.
Danielle came to India to find herself. Then she agreed to deliver a passport for her ex-boyfriend, legendary computer hacker Keiran Kell. It seemed like a simple favor for a friend - until she was abducted by thugs and imprisoned in a nightmarish cell.
She is soon joined by another captive: Laurent, a Foreign Legionnaire turned international activist. Their daring escape is only the beginning. Now Danielle has been drawn into a war between a transnational mining company that is poisoning thousands of Third World farmers, and the invisible armies of anti-corporate protestors who oppose it. A cause, finally, that she can believe in.
Amidst a whirlwind romance on the Goa coast, bloody street battles in Paris, cyberspace duels between shadowy hackers, and a bomb gone wrong in London, Danielle, Laurent and Keiran grow more deeply involved in this battle than they ever expected ... until the line between right and wrong begins to blur. For both sides of this war are willing to kill for their cause - and both sides hide deadly secrets.
Award-winning author Jon Evans returns with new heroes and a compulsive, fast-paced story that examines issues of corporate exploitation and the extreme edge of anti-globalization activism. Invisible Armies is Cold War suspense for the modern age, a thriller that looks behind the power of protests and the politics of big business.
