Thriller of the Year - Apple iBooks
The Fifth Column: the world's most powerful and secretive organization. They run our militaries. They run our governments. They run our terrorist cells.
Recruited as a child, Sophia is a deniable operative for the Fifth Column. Like all operatives, Sophia's DNA has been altered to augment her senses and her mind is splintered into programmed subsets.

On a routine mission in Iran something goes catastrophically wrong. Bugs are beginning to appear in Sophia's programming and the mission spins out of control.

High-speed chases, gun fights, helicopter battles, super soldiers and enhanced abilities are all in the mix in this edge-of-your-seat action-packed techno-thriller. 
Perfect for fans of Matthew Reilly, THE CHIMERA VECTOR melds sci-fi with sizzling espionage action.
Nathan Farrugia is a former Australian recon soldier who has trained under Spetsnaz, Defence Intelligence and SEAL team instructors.
"Farrugia! Bringin' the awesome from the first headshot to the last 'splosion." JOHN BIRMINGHAM, author of the Axis of Time and Disappearance trilogies.

About the Author:

Nathan Farrugia is published by Momentum Books (Pan Macmillan).

Nathan served in the Australian Army in infantry and reconnaissance, and studied film, television and professional writing. He worked as a post-production video editor, colorist and copywriter, where he earned the nickname Fagoogoo because no one could pronounce Farrugia.

Nathan lives in Melbourne, Australia. In his spare time he discovers hidden places around the world with urban explorers. He studies Systema, a little-known martial art and former secret of Russian special forces.

Nathan has trained under USMC, SEAL team, Spetsnaz and Defence Intelligence instructors, and the wilderness and tracking skills of the Chiricahua Apache scouts and Aboriginal Australians. He also drinks tea.
