"Robert Finlay seems to have finally left his SAS past behind him and is settled into his new career as a detective. But when the girlfriend of his former SAS colleague and close friend Kevin Jones is murdered, it's clear that Finlay's troubles are far from over. Jones is arrested for the killing, but soon escapes from jail, and Finlay is held responsible for the breakout. Suspended from duty and sure he's being framed too, our hero teams up with MI5 agent Toni Fellowes to find out who's behind the conspiracy. Their quest soon reveals a plot that goes to the very heart of the UK's security services."--Provided by publisher.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Set in London in 2002, Johnson's hard-hitting conclusion to his trilogy featuring Det. Insp. Robert Finlay (after 2017's Deadly Game) finds Finlay and his fellow Security Service agents operating in a world in which your enemies and your allies are often the same, and knowing who to trust and how far to trust are essential to survival. The nominal but unknown enemy is the secret organization Al Anfal; just about everyone privy to a revealing document about Al Anfal winds up dead. The known enemies include Supt. Jim Mellor, the feared head of the Met's Complaint Investigation Branch, who dares Finlay to throw a punch in a brief but tense confrontation at a police station. The stakes rise when Finlay's colleague Kevin Jones is cleverly framed for the murder of his girlfriend and arrested. Jones makes a daring prison escape that brings the action to a head. The relentless violence will weary some readers. Johnson, a former solider and Metropolitan Police officer, is at his best in detailing bureaucratic maneuvering.
