By Stephen Leather
International bestselling author Stephen Leather's first gripping thriller. Revenge, drugs, terrorism and the underworld collide in one man's quest to avenge a cold blooded murder.
Why does a wealthy Scottish financier set up a drugs deal with the IRA? Jeopardise his career, endanger his family and lover by tangling with the East End underworld and a ruthless mercenary? The motive is simple: revenge for a cold-blooded act of murder.
His adversary is a dangerous gangland boss whose connections stretch from the Highlands to London and beyond. More than a match for a newcomer, especially when that newcomer's plans contain a fatal flaw which will be discovered only when it is much too late . . .
