His first job - to investigate the Eastern European sex-slave industry, just as a key witness is murdered. Finlay, along with his new partner, Nina Brasov, finds himself facing a ruthless criminal gang determined to keep control at all costs. Finlay's efforts to protect his wife and child may have been in vain, though, as an MI5 protection officer uncovers a covert secret service operation that threatens them all....

Thoroughly entertaining

A great listen. Many plot twists & turns. Good building of character profiles. A great follow on from Wicked Game. I hope Matt Johnson writes many more.

Superb

Totally enjoyed this book. Though at times a strange combination of styles of writing. Still very sad to get to the end.

Gripping story lines

I have listened to both books on Audible and found them pretty addictive.
Superb characters I found myself becoming fond on Finley and Kevin. Very well narrated throughout with great accents for each individual character.
Well done Matt, fantastic job!
