An ex-SAS family man is employed on an ad hoc basis by MI5.  He goes undercover to get closer to a fraudster who, after becoming a grass in prison, is released early … and so the fun begins.  Terrorist threats, rivalry, revenge and duplicity heat up the plot which develops into a good beach read.  It is the second in a series to feature ex-firearms officer Paul Tallis.

 

Paul Tallis also features in a number of other thrillers by E V Seymour:

The Mephisto Threat Synopsis

Ex-army. Ex-police. Unofficial MI5 spook.

 

Meet Paul Tallis - a spy for the 21st Century. In Istanbul, crime journalist Garry Morello is executed in cold blood. Moments before his death, he meets with old friend Paul Tallis, hinting that he has uncovered a link between international terrorism and organised crime back home.

On the run from the Turkish authorities, Tallis makes his way back to London and passes the Intel to his MI5 handler. Sent undercover in Birmingham to investigate the threat, Tallis' mission is to infiltrate the inner circle of crime boss Johnny Kennedy. Once inside, Tallis must determine if the charismatic gangster is involved in planning the biggest terrorist attack on Britain - or if his MI5 paymasters are the ones he should be watching.
