COMING IN MAY 2009 ~
In July 1945, MI6 agent Paul Dark took part in a clandestine mission to hunt down and execute Nazi war criminals. He will discover that everything he understood about that mission, about its consequences, and about the woman he once loved, has been built on false foundations.
Now it's 1969, and a KGB colonel has walked into the British High Commission in Lagos, Nigeria, and announced he wants to defect. His credentials as a defector are good: he has highly suggestive information indicating that there is yet another double agent within MI6, which would be a devastating blow to an organization still coming to terms with its betrayal by Kim Philby and the rest of the Cambridge Ring. Dark has been largely above suspicion during MI6's years of self-recrimination - but this time he's in the frame. For some it would be flight or fight time. But when you discover that everything you've taken for granted turns out to be untrue, and when your arrest may be only moments away, then sometimes the only option is flight and flight... whatever the consequences.
FREE AGENT is an intense, twisting thriller set between London and Nigeria during the height of the Biafran War. It's a novel of innumerable cliff-hangers, all set within a constantly evolving moral universe, and the surprises keep coming right up until the last page. This is a remarkable and riveting debut novel, and the first in a trilogy featuring Paul Dark.
