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.

About the Author:

The former Commander of Special Branch at New Scotland Yard, Roger Pearce was responsible for surveillance and undercover operations against terrorists and extremists, the close protection of government ministers and visiting VIPs, and other highly sensitive assignments. He was also Director of Intelligence, charged with heading covert operations against serious and organised criminals. After leaving the Yard he was appointed Counter-Terrorism Adviser to the Foreign Office, where he worked with government and intelligence experts worldwide in the campaign against Al Qaeda. Roger Pearce has degrees in Theology from Durham University and Law from London University. He is also a barrister-at-law. Married with three adult children, he has homes in London and Miami and is European security director of a high profile global company. In his novels the author draws upon his knowledge and first hand experience of a career in national security at every level.

Review:

'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 * 'Dramatic, fast-paced, codeword-heavy fun.' * Guardian * '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 * '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 *
