Fiction, Crime & mystery

A gripping crime thriller from renowned Observer journalist Jamie Doward

Making a killing in the market...

A bomb takes out a CIA station chief in Geneva. A serial killer strikes apparently at random across the UK. In Algeria a terrorist network that controls the illicit trade in guns, drugs, oil and cigarettes is preparing to murder a hundred US and British energy workers unless a ransom is paid. The British and the American intelligence services are competing to find the kidnappers for very different reasons.

One person can see how everything is linked, and that both MI5 and the CIA are being manipulated as part of a grotesque marketing campaign. But Kate Pendragon threatens vested interests who don't want the truth to surface. And some of them are very close to home...

Praise for Hostage

  • 'There is plenty of suspense in this well-written and ambitious first novel' - Literary Review

  • Doward's prose is smooth and pacy, and he conjures up a vivid and convincing world of spooks, gangsters, whitsleblowers and assassins. It all makes for a slick, brainy and very timely spy thriller, played out with cinematic verve on a fast moving international stage. An extremely entertaining debut - Sunday Mirror
