About the Author

Tony Kent is a 41-year-old criminal barrister who draws on his legal experience to bring a striking authenticity and accuracy to his thrillers. Long ranked within his profession as a 'leader in his field', for twenty years Tony has prosecuted and defended the most serious criminal allegations, specialising in terrorism, corruption, murder, kidnap, extortion and fraud. His case history is littered with nationally reported trials and has included close contact with GCHQ, the Security Service and the Ministry of Defence. He has also defended in matters with an international element, involving agencies such as the FBI. Out of court, Tony has lectured on international criminal law, bribery and corruption, and has been engaged to teach trial advocacy to Public Defenders and State Prosecutors in the United States. Prior to the start of his legal career Tony represented England as a heavyweight boxer and won a host of national amateur titles. He lives just outside of London with his wife, young son and dog.

Reviews

'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
