Detective Chief Inspector John Kerr is a British Special Branch intelligence officer running a covert policing unit and an expert at operating under the radar.
When he discovers government corruption at the highest level he finds himself in a race against time to prevent a major terrorist incident in London, yet the police, MI5 and all the other agencies do nothing but place obstacles in his way.
The author is a former commander of the British Special Branch and delivers an excellent punchy thriller, a sort of Smiley on speed adventure. Excellent debut.
