Wicked Game, Paperback Book

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. And so begins a game of cat and mouse - a wicked game - in which Finlay is the target, forced to test his long-buried skills in a fight against a determined and unidentified enemy. 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?`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`A barnstormer of a book ...

Nothing is clear-cut in a labyrinthine plot which is gripping and which - despite thrills and spills aplenty - never falls short of believable' David Young, author Stasi Child
