Author(s): Brabazon, James
The brutally authentic, tense and terrifying thriller from bestselling author and frontline journalist James Brabazon
Officially Max McLean doesn't exist. An off-the-books assassin for the British government, he operates alone.
But when a routine hit goes badly wrong, a cryptic note on a $100 bill prised from his target's dead fingers suggests there's more to the mission than meets the eye.
Is someone from Max's former life trying to send him a message?
From Paris to Jerusalem and on to the frozen wastes of north-west Russia, Max is forced into a desperate race for the truth - with unknown enemies determined to stop him at any cost.
And when the secret coded into the banknote is finally revealed, only one thing is certain: with the fate of the World in his possession, failure is simply not an option . . .
Combining the intelligence and inside knowledge of Robert Harris and Frederick Forsyth with the raw inventiveness of I Am Pilgrim and the breathless pace of movies like Mission Impossible or John Wick, Arkhangel sees James Brabazon stake his claim as rival to Lee Child, David Baldacci and Gregg Hurwitz as a master of the modern action thriller.
