In the great tradition of Day of the Jackal, a chillingly tense tale of assassination and betrayal.
Captain Jack Boulder was his regiment's rifle champion, and runner-up for the Queen's Prize. Now, thanks to a spot of unauthorized freelance activity in Northern Ireland, he's just plain mister, running a gun club in the City.
So when the spooks send him 500 in the post just for picking up the phone and listening, he listens. In spite of the ruthlessness with which the army dumped him, the notion of serving his country still means something to him, and of course it's flattering to be told that you're the only man for the job...
So begins a chillingly tense adventure of assassination and betrayal, in the course of which Jack does what he does best, only to discover that the enemy is not who he had been led to believe, and that not only his life but those of his wife and sons are seriously at risk. Authentically detailed and blisteringly fast-paced, The Ghostmaker is a highly accomplished debut.
