Suicide or murder? DI Ford is sure there’s a killer to catch, but time is running out.
A young female soldier is found on Salisbury Plain, her throat cut and a bloody knife in her dead hand. Everyone assumes that she killed herself. But something doesn’t feel right to DI Ford; the whole scene seems staged. Convinced of foul play, and despite fierce opposition from the army brass and his own superiors, Ford launches a murder investigation.
Years on from his wife’s death, Ford is still struggling with guilt and whether or not to tell his son the truth about what really happened. When his CSI partner confronts him about the tragedy, he knows he has to confess sooner or later. But the living can wait; the dead are calling. With the victim’s regiment due to deploy to Somalia, taking any suspects and evidence with them, Ford has just days to apprehend the killer.
His career on the line and his relationship with his son in the balance, Ford has to work fast if he is going to bring justice to the dead—and closure to the living.
A country manor. Two murders. Multiple suspects. Can DI Ford solve the case before his own dark past is exposed?
After a dog walker discovers human remains in a badger sett in the idyllic Salisbury countryside, DI Ford is called in to lead the ensuing murder investigation. When a second victim turns up in a nearby pond, Ford is determined to find the connection.
Both victims met their fate near the sprawling Alverchalke Estate, ancestral home of a decorated war hero and his family. One was a dogged eco-activist and vocal critic of Lord Baverstock. The other was a petty criminal and poacher, youngest brother of a notorious local crime family. Certain that there’s more to this case than trespassing, Ford and Dr Hannah Fellowes race to find the hidden link. But when one victim’s family threatens to expose Ford’s own dark secret, the ticking clock becomes a time bomb.
Still consumed by guilt over his part in his wife’s tragic accident and struggling to raise the teenage son he lied to, Ford now finds himself losing control of the investigation. Can he work with Hannah to solve the case while privately fighting off the attempted blackmail? Or have his demons finally caught up with him?
Detective Ford has a cold-blooded killer to catch. But can he escape his own dark secrets?
Barely a month since his promotion to Inspector, DI Ford is called in to investigate the murder of a young nurse and her son in a small flat in Salisbury. There are few clues, and no apparent motive, but Ford can sense that there’s a serial killer at work. After all, he knows from brutal personal experience how killers cover their tracks…
It’s been six years since Ford lost his wife in a climbing accident—an accident he caused. He is desperate to keep the truth hidden, especially from his son, Sam. But Ford’s new partner, Dr Hannah Fellowes, is a crime scene investigator with a ruthlessly analytical mind, and as they work together to track down the killer, his crippling guilt is compounded by fear of exposure.
When instinct leads him towards a high-profile suspect, his superiors’ warnings just make him more determined to connect impulse and fact. But can Ford hold it all together—the case, his life—long enough to stop the killer?
SAS combat veteran Gabriel Wolfe now works as a Government troubleshooter. Haunted by a botched mission, he battles PTSD as well as his country’s enemies. In Trigger Point, Gabriel faces an egotistical billionaire planning an armed coup.
It all starts here …
While driving his prized Maserati, Gabriel is run off the road by a glamorous redhead who tells him his old CO, Don Webster, wants to see him. Don now runs a covert ops unit called, simply, the Department. He hires Gabriel as a troubleshooter. “The job’s pretty easy, Old Sport. You find trouble. And you shoot it.”
Gabriel is inserted into Sir Toby Maitland’s inner circle and accompanies him to the US, where he intends to buy the final pieces of kit he needs for his coup to succeed. But Maitland is as devious as he is rich, and soon Gabriel is under threat from an unexpected quarter.
Partnered with a former Delta Force operative, Shaun Cunningham, Gabriel has just days to defeat Maitland or see the country he loves fall into enemy hands. But Maitland has powerful, and dangerous, friends.
“The opening gambit for Gabriel Wolfe, and a great story of a plan to take back the United Kingdom from the government by a madman. Great intriguing tale.”
“Andy Maslen's Trigger Point introduces Gabriel Wolfe as a new hero. What a tremendous read. Fast paced, kept me in suspense all of the way through. Could hardly put it down.”
“Absolutely brilliant. You will not be disappointed!”
The first book in an enthralling series
This gritty, action-packed thriller will leave you short of sleep. It will keep you guessing from page one, including a truly shocking second-act twist. Its powerful mix of strong male and female characters will have you rooting for them against all the odds they face.
A hero like no other
Readers have compared Wolfe to other familiar action heroes. Jack Reacher. John Milton. Ben Hope. Spider Shepherd. Mitch Rapp. But in truth he is his own man.
He's no super-soldier or indestructible man-mountain. If he's shot, he bleeds ... and he hurts. His PTSD, which he battles along with his country’s enemies, gives his missions a sharper edge.
But make no mistake. Wolfe is a good man to have on your side in a tight spot. And he always finds time to help those in trouble, whether or not they are paying for his services.
