From the acclaimed author of NIGHT TRAP, the third exhilarating tale of modern espionage and military adventure featuring US Navy intelligence officer Alan Craik – sure to appeal to the many fans of Tom Clancy and Dale Brown.
The Alan Craik novels – NIGHT TRAP and PEACEMAKER – have earned Gordon Kent electrifying praise for their pace, authenticity and raw emotion, as well as for some of the most remarkable heroes – and villains – in fiction today. Now US Navy Intelligence officer Alan Craik is back in action, all because one man, fuelled by anger, ambition and pain, has ignited an explosive chain of events that threatens not only two careers, but world peace itself...
Alan Craik and his wife Rose are flying high. She’s heading for astronaut training; he’s off to espionage school. But they come crashing down to earth when Rose is falsely accused of spying. As Alan risks everything to clear her name, a series of stunning escalations take his high-tech airborne attachment – and the world – to the brink of war. Suddenly, Craik finds himself hurtling through forbidden airspace to find “Top Hook”, the spy whose act of betrayal is more complex – and chilling – than anyone can imagine.

Praise for PEACEMAKER:
‘This fireball of a military thriller... Few authors integrate multiple plots with such dazzling 3-D realism and technical accuracy... Harrowing shipboard battles, nail-biting emergency plane flights and riveting action drive this turbo-charged thriller. A tour de force with near hypnotic pull, Kent’s second outing scores a bull’s-eye’ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
‘Heroes of both sexes to root for, deliciously corrupt villains to create anxiety: this rollicking, rousing naval thriller bears comparison to the genre’s best.’ KIRKUS REVIEWS
Praise for NIGHT TRAP:
‘Kent knows his subject at first hand and the expertise shows on the page: high stakes, pounding tension and the best dogfights put on paper. A lot of thrillers these days, you come away feeling like you’ve been in a simulator. Gordon Kent straps you into the real thing. Enjoy the ride!’ IAN RANKIN
‘Flying, spying and dying – Night Trap is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair for this one. I loved it.’ STEPHEN COONTSFrom the Publisher:
From the deafening roar of jet fighters launching off an aircraft carrier to nerve-shattering clandestine meetings in some of the most dangerous regions on earth, Top Hook is an unmissable high-action tale of modern espionage and military adventure
Combining the compelling plotting of Tom Clancy, the experience-based authenticity of John Nichol and the storytelling skills of Patrick Robinson, Gordon Kent is building a remarkable international reputation as a writer of thought-provoking, heart-stopping thrillers
