THE ENEMIES AREN’T AT THE GATE
THEY’RE ALREADY INSIDE
_______________
‘An intricate, twisty minefield of geopolitics and absolute power gone rogue. Kent has outdone himself with this one.’ DAVID BALDACCI

‘A gripping conspiracy thriller’ IAN RANKIN
______________
When a plane explodes over the Atlantic Ocean, killing hundreds of passengers, including controversial US presidential candidate Dale Victor, it appears to be a clear-cut case of terrorism. The suspect has even confessed to the bombing. But as criminal barrister Michael Devlin is about to discover, everything is not as it seems.

Also suspecting there are other forces at work, intelligence agent Joe Dempsey is driven to investigate. Who would have wanted Victor out of the way – and would commit mass murder to do it? As the evidence begins to mount, everything seems to point to the US government itself, all the way to the top. And now someone is determined to stop Dempsey and Devlin from discovering the truth. At any cost.

With countless more lives on the line, Dempsey must find a way to prove who’s pulling the strings, and free the White House from the deadly grip that has taken hold of power.

High stakes, high-octane action with twists and turns that will make you gasp. – Adam Hamdy, author of Black 13

Publisher Review

'An intricate, twisty minefield of geopolitics and absolute power gone rogue. Kent has outdone himself with this one.' - DAVID BALDACCI; 'A gripping conspiracy thriller' - IAN RANKIN; 'The kind of fast-paced, action thriller that keeps you hooked until the very end. I loved it.' - Simon Kernick, author of The Bone Field series; 'Reads like Baldacci at his best. Really intelligent, bang-up-to-date thriller.' - Steve Cavanagh, author of Thirteen; 'High stakes, high-octane action with twists and turns that will make you gasp.' - Adam Hamdy, author of Black 13; 'Scarily credible, and so pacy and well-written that I forgot where I was, who I was, and indeed that I was reading a book at all. Gripping, absorbing, a page-turner with characters you commit to 100%' - Judith O'Reilly, author of Killing State; 'Absolutely stunning. Almost eerily topical, it hits like a heavyweight and refuses to let go until the final page. Addictive stuff from Tony Kent, who isn't playing with his claim to be one of the rising starts of crime thrillers.' --Neil Broadfoot, author of No Man's Land; 10 * "[...] a thriller that races across continents with political twists and breathtaking action. Kapow!" - Alex Gordon, Peterborough Telegraph
