    Product Description

    Product Description

    Philip Dunstan's internet payment card business is under attack; his company is being used as a cover for a global fraud, his right-hand man has been murdered, and his executive assistant kidnapped.

    As the security services and the police begin to take an unhealthy interest in Dunstan, it gets even more personal. An expert hit squad is stalking his family, and he and his old army buddy, an ex-SAS NCO known only as 'The Monk', are attacked and almost killed. Dunstan needs to find out fast who his friends are – and who his enemies are. He and The Monk set off on a trail that spans several continents, playing a cat and mouse game with the security services, and leading to a confrontation with Dunstan's past on the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    In a spine-tingling climax, Dunstan races against time to neutralize the threat against his family and himself, and unravel the threads of a plot to destabilize the Indian subcontinent and subsequently the world.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced and Topical 15 Aug 2011
    By Rich
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Hi,

    I downloaded this last week to take on holiday but actually ended up reading it over the weekend. From page one the reader is drawn into a web of intrigue which transpires to be quite complex, but, unlike many books of this ilk around at the moment it does not resort to condescending explanations, but rather encourages the reader to become involved with the plot line and the characters in depth.As the plot moves on across continents, the reader becomes aware of the nature of the (slightly flawed) characters as well as the intricacies of the modern global business and the precarious political nature of the world we live in.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 17 Aug 2011
    By ElaineT
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This is just what a thriller should be - fast-paced, convincing, and packed with excitement and suspense. The writing is effortless; the book grabs your attention from the first pages. The characters are intrigung, and interestingly there are some very strong female characters given leading roles in both the military and security services. The author has an authoritative voice; he seems equally at home whether portraying the more esoteric reaches of the military establishment, the convolutions of the security services, or the geography and politics of the remote mountain areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Altogether this is a great read!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read 26 April 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A fantastic read where the underlying story and plot would rival many current film and TV productions. I was left thinking fact or fiction. Could some of these events really happen! It has highlighted the vulnerability that we all face when our (mobiles, internet etc) latest technology is either attacked or spied upon. A publisher should grab this book and writer as soon as possible so that the audience is extended so ensuring the next story.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A John Buchan of the 21st Century 7 Jun 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A real page turner - I dipped into it and just couldn't put it down - it's classic John Buchan brought into the 21st Century ranging round the world but reaching a splendid climax in the Scottish Highland. It's fast paced, very credible, spot on in all the technical details and a real page turner. My only regret was right at the end when the author, as many first time authors do, seemed almost too much in a hurry to get it finished. I look forward to the next book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars What a cracker of a yarn - when's the sequel???? 24 Aug 2012
    By Bill T
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I stumbled upon this book and once had it on my kindle couldn't put it down. It covers a rich tapestry of territories and personalities and intrigue. Although it is certainly a work of fiction - it has that sublime solution of real life plausibility of consequence. Mr Sperry, if you're thinking of writing a sequel, please do.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out plot, believable characters 26 Jun 2012
    By Martin
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    When I downloaded this and first started reading I had no idea it was to be a story about a lot more than money laundering. The attention to detail is great. The author has gone to great lengths to provide historical, political, technological and military detail, without coming across at all patronising. I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish and thought the characters and scenarios were very believable. A well thought out chain of events.

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Thoroughly enjoyed this book, Duncan Sperry has put some serious research into this story, a great rip roaring yarn although believable in many ways, I look forward to his next book and I am sure the Monk and Dunstan will return in yet another great adventure..
