Thomas Gunn is former Special Forces, trained in assassination and covert operations. So why are he and his partner Julie, suddenly running for their lives? It all starts when Thomas investigates the brutal murder of his wealthy industrialist father. Billions have been funneled into a secret project in Northern Ireland his father's company no longer controls. Furious, he follows a tangled web of clues that lead to a mysterious microelectronics company in the U.S., a heavily fortified ex-Russian submarine base in Estonia and corruption at the highest levels of government and beyond. Shocked and angry at what he uncovers he joins forces with MI5, and with Julie's help and that of her computer expert father, they expose an international conspiracy that threatens the power-base of the western world. But this explosive discovery is deadly, thrusting them into the path of an unknown enemy with more power and influence they could ever imagine. An enemy out to destroy them! 

Who are these ruthless conspirators? How are they connected to his father? And what dark secrets from the past will Thomas uncover, in his relentless quest for the truth? This "gripping", "thought-provoking", "hard to put down novel" by a "master storyteller" keeps you on the edge of your seat and guessing to the very last page!

As the son of an MI6 operative, former officer in Britain's elite Parachute Regiment, pilot, yachstman, race car driver and bestselling author of Contact, AFN Clarke brings his own unique and eye-opening experiences to this first book of the Thomas Gunn thriller series that's fast -paced, exhilarating and frighteningly real.

Why do you think this series has been so well received by readers worldwide?

AFN Clarke: I think it's because from page one Thomas's world becomes their world. He's a caring, compassionate man who's found love and wants to leave his old life behind him. But when something dramatic and deeply personal shakes him to the core, the only way he knows to right a wrong, expose a crime or bring an enemy to its knees is to go back to who he once was - a Special Forces officer, skilled in assassination, covert operations and international espionage. The problem is, at what cost?

I think readers also appreciate the strong female protagonists essential to the series. Whether motivated by good or evil, they are powerful, independent-thinking women, whose strength of character, insights, skills and intelligence directly determine how the action unfolds.

Each book in the series has its own themes with specific genres as listed below. Throw into the mix the secret agendas of intelligence agencies like MI5, MI6, the FBI, CIA and the manipulation of power by corrupt individuals and you have a heart pumping recipe for compelling plots, explosive action and the thought provoking blurring of lines between fiction and reality.
