Dark Asset
by Adrian Magson

“Two thumbs way up for this heart-stopping, exhilarating action thriller” Booklist Starred Review

Deep cover specialist Marc Portman uncovers a secret deal that could make billions in oil revenue … or topple two governments.

Portman’s latest assignment is providing back-up for a French intelligence agent sent to recover a hard drive from one of the most dangerous cities on the planet: Mogadishu in Somalia. What he hasn’t been told is that the device records secret negotiations between two leading western nations and a hardline terrorist organisation responsible for killing thousands of innocent people.

When the decision is taken to abandon the talks, anybody in the know immediately becomes a target to be silenced.

And Portman finds himself at the top of the list…


A gripping read that will appeal to all adventure lovers
