Cold Monday

by Terence Strong

Cold Monday Synopsis

Haunted by the brutal killing of his UN interpreter wife in Bosnia, ex-SAS man Ed Coltrane is consumed with the need to avenge her murder. Drinking too much and spending too much time and money on his search, his life is going into meltdown...When an ex-colleague offers him a chance to make some real money working in 'black ops', Coltrane is interested - until he finds that the job on offer is a commissioned assassination. His disgust, however, is tempered by the knowledge that the target is one of the three men responsible for his wife's death. Against his better judgement, Coltrane accepts the commission. Revenge will be his.This marks the start of a dangerous journey into the dark heart of modern Europe, where Coltrane finds himself in deadly conflict with the new mafias and the security apparatus of an emerging superstate. What Ed Coltrane is about to discover will rock the western world to its foundations.
