In a race down the Thames, Detective Chief Inspector John Kerr is caught in a fight ot the death with two gold smugglers.
The American wife of the British Defence Secretary is brutally murdered while walking her dog. A senior judge is executed in Middle Temple Lane.
Blocked by 'affirmative inaction' at New Scotland Yard and threats from MI6, Kerr deploys a talented female operative undercover to force the truth.
A dirty bomb attack proves the motive is hatred of the United States and the special relationship. But is this domestic extremism or the work of foreign spies?
As attacks escalate, Kerr confronts treachery and corruption from his own side and resorts to action as extreme as the dark forces turned against him.

'The high-octane action begins on page one and doesn't let up until the end. A top-notch thriller with the unmistakeable ring of authenticity.' (Peter Robinson)
'It's a tribute to Roger Pearce's ability that the plot never becomes inpenetrable and there's an uncomfortable authenticity as real-life operations are referenced... a breathless, hurtling page-turner.' (Financial Times)
'Dramatic, fast-paced, codeword-heavy fun.' (Guardian)
'Vividly written and delivering a glimpse of what counter-terrorism feels like, it's a highly promising start from a writer who could well have a big future.' (Daily Mail)
A groundbreaking new voice in fiction
