A Loyal Spy Synopsis

The last time Jonah saw Nor ed-Din, he was lying face down in a pool of black water in the Khyber Pass. For many years, Jonah had been under the impression that he'd killed him there. How far can loyalty be stretched before it reaches a limit? Millions of lives depend on the answer, as a twisting road of betrayal and revenge leads from the mountains of Afghanistan to the heart of London ...and a ticking bomb.

To celebrate the paperback release of the "simply superb" Come and Find Me, we have the opportunity to win a copy of the book with bookplates SIGNED by author Sarah Hilary. The competition will close on Friday 9 November with winners being notified by Friday 16 November.  "Simply superb, Come and Find Me is one hell of a clever, twisting, powerful story. This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.

A Loyal Spy Press Reviews

'A thumping read that joins the dots in the War on Terror. Conway writes with passion and authority on the murky forces unleashed after 9/11.'
Tim Butcher, author of Sunday Times No1 Bestseller Blood River

- A Journey To Africa's Broken Heart 'Complex and detailed ... Conway has concocted a credible, and wholly cynical, tale of dirt, death and double-dealing, of deracine anti-heroes for whom perpetual conflict has become both lifeblood and poison.
The Times

'accuracy seeps out of every page'
Daily Mail

'A LOYAL SPY has incredibly well drawn characters, evocative descriptive passages, and a superbly balanced narrative structure - the twists are unexpected but convincing and the final extended sequence is truly nail-biting. Terrific!'
Misha Glenny, author of McMafia

'Alarmingly current, alarmingly possible. This is a book that captures the new world of asymmetric warfare and yet sustains the narrative and tension of the very best of the thriller genre. A LOYAL SPY is so vivid, so real, that reading it you sense Simon Conway must almost have lived it himself.'
Jon Snow, Channel 4 newscaster

'Simon Conway takes you to the world's most chaotic and dangerous places - and does it with the raw descriptive power of someone who's been there and done that'
Mark Urban, author of Rifles and Big Boys Rules
