ANDREW CERONI has released a nonstop-action page-turner... MERIDIAN will grab you and hold you from page 1 to the chilling end!
It is the biggest of America's big secrets - MERIDIAN, the deepest black and most intensely protected program since the Atom Bomb. The MERIDIAN program contains the furthest leading edge of weapons technology and with origins more profoundly startling than the technology itself. Governments will stop at nothing to get it. Laszlo Csengerny, a Russian-controlled spy, a man haunted by demons from his past, has uncovered the key to destroying the program.
In this prequel to SNOW MEN, CIA agent Pete Novak is racing to Europe with orders to stop Laszlo, to kill him if that's what it takes. Several agents have already died trying. Novak's dedicated security escort, J.T. Brannon, former assassin unmatched in the art of killing, is leery of Novak's assignment and warns him of its danger. As Novak unravels the alarming secrets behind the MERIDIAN program and his path converges with Laszlo's desperate pursuit to annihilate his demons, Novak and his family are swept into the crosshairs of rogue Agency assassins. Only Brannon can save Novak's family, and he is committed to sacrificing his own life to do so.
