Reeling from the attempts on his life and that of his family, Police Inspector Robert Finlay returns to work to discover that any hope of a peaceful existence has been dashed.
Assigned to investigate the Eastern European sex-slave industry just as a key witness is murdered. Finlay, along with his new partner Nina Brasov, finds himself facing a ruthless criminal gang, determined to keep control of the traffic of people into the UK. On the home front, Finlay's efforts to protect his wife and child may have been in vain, as an MI5 protection officer uncovers a covert secret service operation that threatens them all...
Aided by new allies, he must not only protect his family but save a colleague from an unseen enemy ... and a shocking fate.
Deadly Game is a stunning, terrifying and eye-opening thriller from one of the most exciting new names in crime fiction.
'Gripping stuff' New Welsh Review
'Finlay's first person narrative voice is punchy and to the point, and the switching between him and the third person points of view carries the story along smoothly. Mention should be made of the interesting supporting cast that add layers of intrigue into the narrative and compels the reader to look out for these thrillers from Matt Johnson. Highly Recommended.'

'Terse, tense and vivid writing. Matt Johnson is a brilliant new name in the world of thrillers' Peter James
'An authentic, magnetic and completely absorbing read' Sir Ranulph Fiennes
'Nothing is clear-cut in a gripping labyrinthine plot, which - despite thrills and spills aplenty - never falls short of believable' David Young, author of Stasi Child
'A book by an ex-cop and -soldier has the potential to go wrong and fall flat due to it being all about inside knowledge that is tough to decipher by the public. This book isn't like that. It is a genuine page-turner, very well written, and just flows from one scenario to the next. It is clear the author lived through these times and this is evident in knowledge and description. Excellent' Ian Patrick
'A top-notch thriller with a dark heart and an emotional soul' Liz Loves Books
'Deadly Game combines spy thriller and police procedural extremely well and should certainly be destined for the shelves of anyone into their conspiracy thrillers' Crime Fiction Lover
