The epic second novel from the author of the acclaimed Anthrax Island.'Black Run grabs the attention like a fire alarm and never lets up' The TimesJohn Tyler has a new mission: capture a heavily protected target from a ski resort in the Alps and smuggle him back to the UK. The abduction was a success, and Tyler boards the Tiburon, a rusting freighter crewed by smugglers and mercenaries, for the last leg of his journey.
But his mark's security team is hot on his heels, and won't be deterred by an ocean. When Tyler's prisoner is found murdered inside a sealed hold on the ship, everyone on board becomes a suspect.
