When Dennis Milne--now living under an assumed identity in the Philippines--hears that his old friend and colleague Malik has been gunned down in a restaurant, he decides to go back to the violent city he once called home and bring the murderer to justice. Milne arrives in a pre-Christmas London that is cold and hostile. But he is no longer a policeman; no longer charged with keeping the peace and upholding the law. Although his old friends at the King's Cross station do not know that Milne is back in town, it soon becomes clear that his arrival has been expected by men who are after his blood. Hungry for revenge and determined to uphold his own very rough brand of justice, Milne searches for the person behind his friend's demise--and leaves a trail of death and destruction more wide-reaching than even he could have expected

When Operation Surgical Strike, a police sting designed to catch Colombian drug traffickers in the act of selling a large consignment of cocaine to undercover police officers, goes horribly wrong, suspicion quickly falls on one of the police officers involved: "Stegs" Jenner.

"John Meron, a happily married father of two young children, has always lived an unassuming, unexceptional life. But one brief phone call changes everything. On an ordinary summer afternoon, John recognizes the voice of his old friend Jack Calley, a big-time City lawyer, screaming for his life. Meron listens helplessly to the sounds of Calley being viciously attacked and murdered. Most shocking of all are Calley's last words: the first two lines of Meron's home address. Confused and terrified, Meron piles his children in the car and drives away, trying desperately to reach his wife on her cell phone or at her office. There is no answer. With his wife missing, an unidentified corpse in her office, his home occupied by three armed men, and the police after him for crimes too horrible to contemplate, John Meron's quiet life is about to get a whole lot more interesting. But he might not stay alive long enough to notice."--

ADVENTURE / THRILLER. A terrifying read-in-one-gulp thriller with a killer premise: what do you do when the woman in bed beside you is a headless corpse. Straight off I knew it was going to be a bad day. The room was stifling hot; and when I did finally manage to drag open my eyes, all I could see was blood. I thought I'd stepped into the middle of a nightmare. But I was wrong. The nightmare was only just beginning. Ex-soldier Sean Tyler wakes up in an unfamiliar room next to the headless corpse of a girl he's met only once. With his memory of the previous twenty-four hours wiped clean, he's hardly out of bed before the phone rings. A voice tells him to press play on the room's DVD machine. The film shows him stabbing someone to death. Tyler is confident that the footage is fake, but will a jury see things the same way? The man on the phone tells him to go to an address in east London, and await instructions. Tyler knows he must do as he is told

"It's evening, you're back late from work - and the house is in darkness. You step inside, and the phone rings. You answer it - and your world turns upside down. Your fourteen-year-old daughter's been taken, and her kidnappers demand half a million pounds in cash. They give you forty-eight hours to raise the money, and warn you that if you call the police, she'll die. Trying desperately to remain calm, you realise that your husband - the man you married only two years previously - is also missing. But he can't be involved in your daughter's abduction. Or can he? As your nightmare begins, you can be certain of only two things: you will do anything to get your daughter back alive - and that time is running out"--Publisher's website
