The Lantern Network

The Lantern Network

Routine surveillance, nothing special’ – Commander Bailey’s brief from Special Branch seems simple enough. But it leads to a sudden, bloody suicide.

Piece-by-piece, Baily uncovers the history of a courageous special agent aiding the French Resistance during WWII. But the agent’s loyalties are fatally divided. Thirty years on, in a quiet flat in south London, the final, tragic act of the drama takes place…

THE LANTERN NETWORK is a gripping story of heroism and betrayal in Nazi-occupied France from a genuine craftsman of the thriller genre.

‘A grimly realistic story of patriotism, treachery and fierce courage of men and women who defy torture and death’ – Daily Telegraph

I've been reading all his stuff and am most impressed. He has had personal experience in the Intelligence racket and it shows - the books are authentic and most exciting
