by Adrian Magson

The explosive new Harry Tate thriller

Former MI5 officer Harry Tate’s skill at tracking down runaways is second to none – and the Security Services need his help. When MI6 ask him to trace Vanessa Tan, a lieutenant with the Royal Logistics Corps who failed to report for her return flight to Afghanistan, Harry instinctively feels it’s a mission to avoid. But when he learns of the involvement of his former boss, Henry Paulton – the man who tried to have him killed – he agrees to take the job, and events soon take an unexpected turn . .


Magson offers up his usual taut, keep-’em-guessing thriller packed with action and unexpected twists, and guaranteed to keep espionage aficionados on the edge of their seats.


Well-constructed and exciting, with plenty of strong dialogue and plot twists to keep the reader guessing, and probably guessing wrong.
