Wicked Game, Paperback / softback Book

Wicked Game Paperback / softback

Description

2001. Age is catching up with Robert Finlay, a police officer on the Royalty Protection team based in London. He's looking forward to returning to uniform policing and a less stressful life with his new family.

But fate has other plans. Finlay's deeply traumatic, carefully concealed past is about to return to haunt him.

A policeman is killed by a bomb blast, and a second is gunned down in his own driveway.

Both of the murdered men were former Army colleagues from Finlay's own SAS regiment, and in a series of explosive events, it becomes clear that he is not the ordinary man that his colleagues, friends and new family think he is.

Wicked Game is a taut, action-packed, emotive thriller about a man who might be your neighbour, a man who is forced to confront his past in order to face a threat that may wipe out his future, a man who is willing to do anything to protect the people he loves.

But is it too late? 'On every page tension is carefully built, as a portentous revelation is offered or a memory smothered.

Johnson litters his tale with the plotting equivalent of incendiaries: cops we don't quite trust, a career that came abruptly to an end, a secret needing to be kept ...

Gripping stuff' New Welsh Review 'Terse, tense and vivid writing.

Matt Johnson is a brilliant new name in the world of thrillers. And he's going to be a big name' Peter James `From the first page to the last, an authentic, magnetic and completely absorbing read' Sir Ranulph Fiennes
