Charlie Paddon and Alex Chappell form a dynamic new partnership as Diplomatic Protection agents in this scintillating debut. The chemistry between Paddon and Chappell is well balanced against the high drama of a chase from London to Edinburgh. Nick Curtis writes a fast-paced police procedural with strong cast of characters – this is one for all the Spooks fans out there.

If you like Nick Curtis you might also like to read books by Chris Freeman.

Synopsis

Runaway Minister by Nick Curtis

The plan: Hazbi Dunja will die slowly, in agony, away from the world. The pretty female aide will be an added bonus. Revenge is finally within reach.

The assignment: Charlie Paddon and his straight-talking partner, Alex Chappell are the Diplomatic Protection Unit's best. They must escort Dunja - the Croatian foreign minister - safely to London.

Only the moment his plane touches on British soil, the minister vanishes.

The race is on – and the clock is ticking…
