Special Purposes: First Strike Weapon

Published by Abaddon
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

1987, the height of the Cold War. For Captain Vadim Scorlenski and the rest of the 15th Spetsnaz Brigade, being scrambled to unfamiliar territory at no notice, without a brief or proper equipment, is more or less expected; but even by his standards, their mission to one of the United States’ busiest cities stinks...

World War III was over in a matter of hours, and Vadim and most of his squad are dead, but not done. What’s happened to them, and to millions of civilians around the world, goes beyond any war crime; and Vadim and his team – Skull, Mongol, Farm Boy, Princess, Gulag, the Fräulein and New Boy – won’t rest until they’ve seen justice done.

Gavin G. Smith is the Dundee-born author of the hard edged, action-packed SF novels Veteran, War in Heaven, Age of Scorpio, A Quantum Mythology, The Beauty of Destruction and The Hangman’s Daughter, as well as the short story collection Crysis Escalation. In collaboration with Stephen Deas, as the composite personality Gavin Deas, he has co-written Elite: Wanted, and the shared world series Empires: Infiltration and Empires: Extraction. Spec Ops Z is his first World War Three/Horror novel and he enjoyed writing it a little too much.
