When you want to take power, call the SAS.
A right-wing billionaire is standing for Parliament. He enlists the help of ex-SAS soldier, Gabriel Wolfe. Gabriel left the Army after a covert mission went disastrously wrong and has sworn never to cause another man's death.
It quickly becomes clear that Sir Toby Maitland's ambitions extend far beyond a seat as an MP.
When an ex-contact in Swedish Special Forces, now working for MI5, contacts Gabriel, he realizes he has little choice but to try to stop his employer's juggernaut in its tracks.
Drugs, guns, and plastique: Gabriel finds himself embroiled in deals with Hell's Angels and a South African arms dealer in the US before the true nature of Sir Toby's plan is revealed.
This is a fast-paced thriller in the same vein as early James Bond, through Robert Ludlum's Bourne books to Lee Child's Jack Reacher series. Expect fast cars, gunplay, nail-biting suspense, and enough hardware to start a small war.
Watch out Reacher, there's a new guy in town. If you like your action hot and heavy and your heroes cool under fire, you'll love Gabriel Wolfe. But be warned, beneath the calm surface deep currents are flowing. Currents that threaten to take him under every single day of his life.

Yes. It's a beautifully written book, full of the kind of small details and observations that make characters and places really believable. The plot's clever and clearly very well researched. It had me hooked from the start and kept me gripped throughout. What also helped was that it was read well too, which made it a pleasure to listen to. I can't wait for the audio version of the next Gabriel Wolfe novel!
It's not usually the kind of book I'd read or listen to, but I'm converted!
As much as the action scenes are expertly written with an amazing level of detail, I really liked the softer scenes involving the girls and when Gabriel's alone with his thoughts too.
Yes. I won't give away too much away but it involved Gabriel's dog.
Definitely one to download for your hols!
"A thrilling and suspenseful ride."
This is my first book by Andy Maslen and it was thrilling. I was on the edge of my seat listening to every word. What a story! Filled with intrigue, suspense, conspiracy, excellent details, absolutely amazing. Narrator Gethyn Edwards delivers a fantastic performance. With a wide range of accents and characters, it is truly a outstanding performance. A must have book.
