About the Book

In this action-packed thriller, the Amalfi detective agency has won government contracts referred to as ‘blind eye’.  Patrick Mann, the owner, employs loyal staff he has liberated from a gang of traffickers. An operation to catch a serial killer ends with the culprit escaping justice, but dying at the hands of a vigilante. Patrick recognises the high-tech method involved leading him to a colleague from his past and a security company, based in N. Yemen, staffed by ex-special forces personnel. Jed, the vigilante responsible for the serial killers death, leaves his partner and moves to California. Seduced by the lifestyle, he turns to drugs and becomes a loose cannon when his son is killed in a Taliban attack.  He discovers that essential supplies failed to reach their forward position and the Para patrol was forced to fight a hand-to-hand battle when they ran out of ammunition. During subsequent events they find themselves at odds with the Russian Mafia and a drugs gang.
