Officially, Max McLean doesn’t exist. The British government denies all knowledge of the work he does on their behalf to keep us safe. But Max and his masters are losing faith in each other. And they’ve given him one last chance to prove he’s still their man.

Sent to a military research facility to meet a former comrade-in-arms, Max finds the bravest man he ever knew locked up for his own protection. His friend lost his mind during an operation in West Africa. The reason? Absolute mortal terror.

Max is determined to find out why.

Ahead lies a perilous, breathtaking mission into the unknown that will call into question everything that Max once believed in.

Acting alone, without back-up, Max lands in Sierra Leone with his friend’s last words ringing in his ears: ‘They’re coming, Max. They’re coming . . .’

The Break Line is a debut dripping with authenticity and menace. Smart, unputdownable and packed with irresistible set pieces and jaw-dropping plot twists, this is a thriller like no other.


REVIEW – Not what i was expecting at all, i as thinking along the lines of tense spy thriller. But this is brutal and tense and gripping in all the best ways, it goes way beyond my preconception of what this book would be. As a debut novel it certainly kept me hooked and though the cover is not too appealing the blurb had me hooked, then the journey the characters and reader went on was intense. Not being vague in my review on purpose but i want you to go in and not know about all the twists and surprises i found when reading the book. Gripping perfect holiday read for me.
