The Blurb

Action-packed, high-stakes suspense, brilliant characters impossible to put down.

WHEN THE PAST COMES CALLING, WHO CAN YOU TRUST?

The Calder family seem to have it all. Until the day Adrian Calder takes a gun and shoots his wife and children dead.

It looks like an open and shut case, but PC Lucy Davies isn’t convinced.

RUSSIA

A sleeper agent in Moscow demands an urgent meeting with Dan Forrester but when Dan’s cover is blown he finds himself on his own.

Discovering that their cases are linked, Dan and Lucy desperately race to find answers, but they soon realise that their lives aren’t the only ones in danger.

But how do you protect your family when you don’t know who is hunting them?

A fast and ingenious thriller that pits the brilliantly addictive Forrester and Davies against a tense and chillingly real Russian conspiracy.

A short extract

The Prologue

Thursday 22 January, Murmansk

Edik Yesikov listened to the tape with increasing disbelief. He forgot all about his guests milling in the gun room, the snow wolf hunt he’d organised, the fact they only had four hours or so to bag their trophies before the sun set. If what he’d heard was true, it was fantastic news.

‘It’s been verified?’ he asked.

The Director of  the FSK, the Federal Counterintelligence Service of Russia, glanced at Edik’s father, who nodded. As usual, the power in the room was held by the old man, who had flown with the Director straight to the hunting lodge from Moscow this morning. Lazar Yesikov hadn’t wanted anyone overhearing what he had to say.

‘The British journalist says she heard it from Polina Calder directly,’ his father said. ‘I see no reason to doubt her.’

Edik felt a moment’s alarm. ‘We haven’t kept her here, have we? The British government will go insane.’

‘Of course not.’ The old man looked affronted. ‘We put her on a plane this morning.’

Edrik arched both eyebrows into a question.

‘She’ll  be dealt with when she gets home,’ the old man told him. ‘An accident. She bicycles to work. London is a dangerous place for cyclists.

And Polina Calder?’

‘The same. Except she doesn’t use a bicycle. She walks into town. Another accident.’

Edik pulled a face, ‘Are you sure we can get away with it?’

A film fell over his father’s eyes. His expression emptied. Edik knew that look. It meant anyone who stood in his way would, quite simply, be eliminated,

‘Leave any troublemakers to me,’ Said the old man quietly.
