The Old Enemy

£16.99

Ex-MI6 officer Paul Samson prefers to work privately these days. He has been tasked with guarding a young woman, Zoe Freemantle. He doesn’t know who she is, or why she’s important, but the money’s good enough for him not to dig too deeply. He shadows Zoe, first becoming intrigued with this striking woman as he observes her movements around London. He’s just beginning to tire of a job he considers beneath him, when a watcher disguised as a homeless man attempts to abduct Zoe at knife point before his eyes. In the ensuing fracas, she escapes, while Samson wishes he’d asked more questions. When his former colleague, Robert Harland, is assassinated, the news comes with the threat that Samson’s own life – and that of others he holds dear – is on the line. Samson is sure he knows why there’s a target on his back. What he doesn’t know is who put it there.

Description

Heart-stopping international spy thriller from ‘An espionage master’ (Charles Cumming) starring ex-MI6 officer Paul Samson for fans of Mick Herron, Lee Child and John le Carre.

Ex-MI6 officer Paul Samson has been tasked with secretly guarding a gifted young woman, Zoe Freemantle. He is just beginning to tire of the job when he is attacked in the street by a freakish looking knifeman. It’s clear the target is on his back not hers. What he doesn’t know is who put it there.

At that moment, his mentor, the MI6 legend Robert Harland lies dead on a remote stretch of the Baltic coastline. Who needed to end the old spy’s life when he was, in any case, dying from a terminal illness? And what or who is Berlin Blue, the name scratched in the sketchbook beside his body?

A few hours later, Samson watches footage from the US Congress where billionaire philanthropist Denis Hisami is poisoned with a nerve agent while testifying – an attack that is as spectacular as it is lethal, but spares Anastasia Hisami, the love of Samson’s life.

Two things become clear. One, it was a big mistake to lose the mysterious Zoe Freemantle. And two, Robert Harland is making a final play from beyond the grave.
