For all fans of great thrillers, of authors such as James Swallow, Frank Gardner, Terry Hayes, John le Carre, The Stranger sweeps us onward at white-knuckle pace, riding alongside a killer from our deepest nightmares and in Jude Lyon, an MI6 agent who is both ruthless and vulnerable - a new hero for a new decade.
September, 2020
Probably my favourite book of the year . . . a fabulous thriller, full on, remarkable and ingenious. Michael Jecks A story so strong, you suspect it MUST be true . . . one of the 21st century's masters of the thriller genre' Jon Snow The new novel from the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger award-winning author of A Loyal Spy ISIS can't control him. MI6 can't find him. But he's coming... Things change quickly in the world of espionage and clandestine operations. Jude Lyon of MI6 remembers the captured terrorist bomb-maker. He watched him being flown off to Syria, back when Syria was 'friendly'. No-one expected him to survive interrogation there. Yet the man is alive and someone has broken him out of jail. Bad news for the former foreign secretary who authorised his rendition. And Jude's boss Queen Bee who knew he wasn't a terrorist at all, but an innocent bystander. Now she calls Jude back from a dangerously enjoyable mission involving a Russian diplomat's wife. He has a new job: close down this embarrassment. Fast. But embarrassment is only the beginning. Someone is using the former prisoner to front a new and unspeakably terrifying campaign. Someone not even ISIS can control. He is like a rumour, a myth, a whisper on the desert wind. But he is real and he is coming for us ... He is the genius known only as ... The Stranger. From the corridors of Westminster to the refugee camps of Jordan, the back streets of East London to the badlands of Iraq, The Stranger is a nerve-shredding journey of suspense as Jude Lyon pieces together the shape of an implacable horror coming towards him - and a conspiracy of lies behind him.
