THE ENEMIES AREN'T AT THE GATETHEY'RE ALREADY INSIDE_______________'An intricate, twisty minefield of geopolitics and absolute power gone rogue.

Kent has outdone himself with this one.' DAVID BALDACCI'A gripping conspiracy thriller' IAN RANKIN______________When a plane explodes over the Atlantic Ocean, killing hundreds of passengers, including controversial US presidential candidate Dale Victor, it appears to be a clear-cut case of terrorism.

The suspect has even confessed to the bombing. But as criminal barrister Michael Devlin is about to discover, everything is not as it seems. Also suspecting there are other forces at work, intelligence agent Joe Dempsey is driven to investigate.

Who would have wanted Victor out of the way - and would commit mass murder to do it?

As the evidence begins to mount, everything seems to point to the US government itself, all the way to the top. And now someone is determined to stop Dempsey and Devlin from discovering the truth.

At any cost. With countless more lives on the line, Dempsey must find a way to prove who's pulling the strings, and free the White House from the deadly grip that has taken hold of power. ______________WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT TONY KENT:'a high-octane conspiracy yarn' - The Times'Twist after twist as it builds to a brilliant finale.' - Daily Mirror'The kind of fast-paced, action thriller that keeps you hooked until the very end.
