Being mugged by a spook, if you’re a journalist, is a good sign your story is more about the sinister truth and less mad conspiracy.

International journalist Chloe Moreau is drawn into the intelligence world where secret services collaborate as well as compete for information.

It isn’t only her investigation that is worrying the intelligence community, her husband has links with an Al Qaeda money-laundering project. Chloe needs information from MI5 and they need her help to bring down the terrorist plot.

Can Chloe get the proof she needs to publish her findings? And can MI5 prevent the imminent terrorist attack on England?

"I really enjoyed this book! It was not a book to read before going to bed! I would start it when I finally had time at night to read and it would keep me up at night! It is sooo suspenseful and detailed that I couldn't put it down. I would stay up until the wee hours and then feel sleepy all the next day! Needless to say, I stopped reading it at bedtime!"

"An interesting theme with complex plotting."

"The difficulties of writing a torture scene – with the delicate balance between understatement and overstatement – should not be underestimated. However, Harris has risen to the challenge admirably."

"The drama in the spine of the overall story does convey a wonderful milieu of menace and unease. There is plenty for the reader to do, and that is always a good indication of the writer’s engagement with the subject."

"This is a story about a multi-national journalist who becomes drawn into a terrorist plot. It covers the globe with modern power blocks and old cold-war tensions all in play. The tension steadily builds to a dramatic scrambling climax to avoid disaster. This is not a tale of super-heroes. The characters are believable, both strong and weak, smart and mistaken. After about 1/4 of the book, I was hooked and had to finish the book". *****
