Summary

A newly formed terrorist group has declared war on the world’s richest people. The choice is simple. The rich can give away their wealth to escape an assassin’s bullet, or they can die. When the wealthiest five people are dead, a new death list will be publicly declared. 

When a British billionaire is assassinated, MI5 agent Alex King is sent to investigate. With the killings carried out by a sniper of tremendous skill, King’s dark past makes him the best man for the task.

King soon discovers attempts to corrupt the investigation and investment links to a prominent cabinet member. Only when an attempt is made on his own life does King suspect there is more to the group’s declaration than first appeared. 

King faces an impossible task. With multi-billionaires giving so much of their wealth to charities, the terrorist group are regarded by many as heroes of a new world order. 

As King closes in, the fight becomes personal.

brilliant!

I didn't even give the last book one star but that was completely down to the narration, I really enjoy the Alex King books & this was excellent, fast paced, good detail & brilliant narration, looking forward to book 5 now
