Description

THE ACTION-PACKED THRILLER THAT FUSES BRAWN AND BRAINS

Oxford University has never employed a man like Leo Black before.

Now an adored lecturer destined for tenure among the gleaming spires, Leo Black served the SAS for twenty years with distinction.

When the friend he fought alongside is killed in Paris trying to prevent the abduction of a young British scientist, the world Leo has tried to put behind him begins to reel him back in.

But as Leo gets closer to the startling truth about his friend’s death, he faces a difficult decision.

Forget the training, the loyalty, the service and be the man the university wants him to be . . .

Or remember that not so long ago, he was a truly exceptional soldier.

Publisher Review

Fasten your seatbelts for a quality thriller . . . * Independent on Sunday * An edge-of-the-seat thriller . . . should come with a health warning * Irish Independent * Breathlessly enjoyable * The Times * Praise for Matthew Hall * - * Matthew Hall has crafted an action thriller with more texture than most * The Times * A fast-paced global thriller * Mail on Sunday * A Bond-style thriller for the 21st century. . . Written with pace and great panache, it feels like a movie already * The Daily Mail * Hall probes how a real-life Jack Reacher figure might cope with years of taking lives for the greater good, and Black's inner conflict gives the firefights and betrayals erupting around him unusual depth * The Times * This is an ideal piece of escapism. I heartily recommend it * Shots Magazine * This intelligent thriller is his best work yet * The Sun *
