Publisher : Thomas & Mercer
Release : January 1, 2016
Genre : Mystery, Thriller & Suspense
Dan Hendricks is a man in need of a lifeline. A former CIA operative, he is now an agent for hire by foreign powers on the hunt for dangerous fugitives. It’s a lethal world at the best of times, and Dan knows his number is almost up. His next job could be his last—and his next job is his biggest yet.
The target sounds trackable enough: Jacques Fillon, who gave up his life trying to save a fellow passenger following a bus crash in northern Sweden. But the man was something of an enigma in this rural community, and his death exposes his greatest secret: Jacques Fillon never existed at all.
Dan is tasked with uncovering Fillon’s true identity—but can he do so before his own past catches up with him?
“This superior espionage thriller has all the moral ambiguity and heart-quickening action scenes you could ask for.” —Sunday Express
“Clever, gripping and precise…Set in the dark Scandinavian forests, this is a tight and elegant novel, focusing on morality and identity.” —Catholic Herald
