Brilliant new thriller by the author of Skin and Bones.

Terror’s Reach: an exclusive island on the south coast of England, home to rival business tycoons Valentin Nasenko and Robert Felton. On a sweltering weekend in May, the island is targeted by a team of ruthless killers. Its residents are facing annihilation, and only one man stands a chance of saving them.

Four years ago, after an undercover police operation went disastrously wrong, Joe Clayton lost his career and his family. Forced to adopt a new identity, he drifted from job to job and ended up on the Reach, working as a bodyguard to Nasenko’s wife, Cassie, and her children. Now he must draw upon all his experience and reserves of strength to bring them out alive.

But the situation is far more complex than anyone realises, and soon Joe is caught up in an explosive feud between two immensely powerful forces. What gradually becomes clear is that the fortune hidden away on Terror’s Reach is not a prize at all.

It’s a trap.
