A series of high-profile suicide bombing has devastated London and stymied British Intelligence. But none of that matters to Danny Watts and his ex-spy grandfather Fergus, who are living peacefully incognito in Spain—that is, until their cover is blown in a botched assassination attempt.

Suddenly, Danny and Fergus are forced to return to London and into the swirl of current events. Their only hope of clearing the family name is to break into Intelligence headquarters and steal the files that prove Fergus was framed by his commanding officer. But when Fergus takes a bullet in the leg, it’s up to Danny to do the job alone. Is Danny up to the task? And what is the Watts family’s connection to the bombings?

With a story ripped from today’s headlines, and filled with authentic details from Andy McNab’s experiences in British Special Ops, Payback continues the explosive action that made Traitor a YA action fan favorite.
