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.

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…
