A botched & bloody assassination in full view of the media kicks off this action-packed thriller from Tony Kent.

Starting in London, we’re dragged breathlessly around the U.K and Northern Ireland with professional killers, politicians, the security services, former para-militaries and sundry ‘civilians’ all adding to the tension of this accomplished thriller.

Military Intelligence Officer, Joe Dempsey, was overseeing the event and realises that it’s a professional ‘hit’ with intricate and far-reaching consequences. Reporter, Sarah Truman, witnesses the killing and reaches the same conclusion.

One of the men that seems to be an integral part to the assassination team is taken into custody. Which starts a coverup and spiral of murders that draws Belfast-born, barrister, Michael Devlin in to the mix. Michael has a secret past that will lead him back to old Loyalist connections in Northern Ireland.

These three figures are at the centre of a tightly-written and pacey story. With the clock ticking all too swiftly on the crumbling future of the British Government, Joe, Michael and Sarah scramble to uncover the concealed dark truth, and lead us to a deadly denouement.

This is an absolute knockout debut novel from Tony Kent and with more of Devlin and Dempsey promised, I for one can’t wait.
