By Pauline Rowson

In his first undercover investigation for the UK’s National Intelligence Marine Squad, former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik finds himself on the hunt for the truth behind a fifteen year old murder of which an innocent man was convicted. Adrift after leaving the marines and smarting from his first failed civilian mission, Marvik seeks refuge in a remote cottage on the Isle of Wight.


When a former girlfriend shows up with a disturbing story about the murder of a young woman fifteen years ago and her growing belief that the man convicted of it is innocent, Marvik doesn't think much of it. When she goes missing after leaving his home everything changes. Suspected by the police of not only her abduction and possible murder, but also the disappearance of a computer research scientist, it's clear Marvik is being framed - but by whom and why.


In a race against time, Marvik is sucked into a dangerous assignment and a web of deceit that will need all his skills, and those of his friend, former Royal Marine Special Forces Communicator, Shaun Strathen, to get to the truth. Their mission, to stop a ruthless killer before he kills again.

'Fans of Rowson's DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series. A likeable, smart, tough, but all too human hero. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.A cracking-good new series,action fans need Marvik on their radar'. - Booklist
