Loyalty comes in all calibers
Meet Wolfe. Ex-SAS and haunted by the ghosts of his fallen comrades. He left the army with a chest full of medals and PTSD. Now he faces the toughest challenge of his life. Preventing a hostile coup in the UK. He's recruited by Britta Falskog, a former member of Swedish Special Forces now working for MI5. There used to be something between them, but it's all business now.
Sir Toby Maitland claims to be standing for Parliament. But his ultra-nationalist rhetoric is more than just a vote-grabber. Set up by MI5, he hires Gabriel as a spokesman/enforcer.
Working undercover, Gabriel travels to the US with Maitland. His brief, discover Maitland's plan and then stop him. With deadly force. He gets embroiled in a drugs-for-cash deal with Hells Angels. Then must convince Maitland where his loyalties lie, on a farm in Michigan run as an arms depot by an ex-South African security service operator.
With the Prime Minister due to overfly Maitland’s estate en route to a military conference, and a paramilitary force gathered in preparation for a coup, time is running out for Wolfe.
As the action swings from the English countryside to Chicago, upstate Michigan and back again, expect plenty of kinetic action in calibres from 5.56mm up to the mighty "fifty cal". Plus martial arts, knife-fights and car chases.
Wolfe may be learning the ways of spooks, but his military skills are still razor-sharp. As he gathers intel along the way he teams up with an ex-Delta Force operator, Shaun Cunningham. The two men bond over shared experiences in service until a horrifying development smashes the partnership.
It all starts here
Trigger Point is the first novel in this series of all-action thrillers. It follows Wolfe from the SAS into the murky shadows of covert assassination ops for The Department.
Other books in the series see him combat Chechen terrorists, a death cult in the rainforest, political corruption and Russian crime gangs. But first there's a planned coup in the UK and Gabriel is tasked with killing its leader.
