When you can't get your Tom Clancy fix try this big American high-tech thriller. He's not in the same league as Clancy but he spins a fast, pacy yarn.

Sarah Broadhurst

Hostile Contact Synopsis

In the seas off Seattle, an unidentified submarine is shadowing American ballistic-missile subs. US Navy intelligence officer Alan Craik will have to draw on all his experience of aerial anti-submarine warfare to track it down. Yet unexpected complications from his last mission threaten to put him out of action before he can even get started.

Hostile Contact Press Reviews

‘Kent knows his subject at first hand and the expertise shows on the page: high stakes, pounding tension and the best dogfights put on paper. A lot of thrillers these days, you come away feeling like you’ve been in a simulator. Gordon Kent straps you into the real thing. Enjoy the ride!’
IAN RANKIN, on Night Trap

‘Flying, spying and dying – Night Trap is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair. I loved it.’
STEPHEN COONTS

‘Tom Clancy used to have the high-tech military thriller stakes all to himself but now Gordon Kent has entered the field, and how. Non-stop … a smoking gun of a story.’
Northern Echo, on Peacemaker

‘Told with all the authority of inside knowledge … an absorbing tale of international skulduggery.’
Irish News, on Peacemaker

‘Consistently excellent … loaded with gunfights, snappy dialogue and the aerial hijinks of supersonic jet fighters. The high testosterone doses satisfy, but best is the complex and clever web of motive Kent weaves for the mole.’
Publishers Weekly, on Top Hook
