Pearce, ex-MI6 officer, is in Thailand pursuing his own agenda under an assumed
name when a red-haired woman introduces herself to him in a bar using his real
name. This is on page 24. From that moment that
Melody Gold blows his cover she and Scott are on the run, pursued by dangerous
people. But who are they and why do they want to kill them?
The news that Melody gives Scott of the death of the PI that
her law firm Denton Fraser had employed and the method of his death convinces
Scot that he must return to Britain to find out who killed his friend. All Melody can
tell him is that her boss taking instructions from a client learned something that
scared him, and he sent her half way around the world to locate Scott, but she
doesn’t know what he discovered, just that it’s connected to a big bank.
Back in the UK the danger only intensifies as Scott realises,
they have already picked up a tail. Although
it becomes clear that Melody has no more knowledge than she has already revealed,
she is clearly at risk. And so, Scott enlists the aid of his friend from way
back Wayne Nelson to act as a bodyguard for Melody. Constantly on the move dodging thugs and bullets, Scott endeavours to
uncover just what the hell is going on. Whatever it is it is big, and the orchestrators
have a lot of manpower. Every way Scott and Melody turn there are people trying to kill
them. Having ditched anything that could contain a tracker Scott turns to another
old friend, but they are greatly outnubered. These people are clearly well-equipped
and there are a lot of them, and they want Scott and Melody dead.And these killers leave their calling card ‘Black
13’.Just who are Black 13?
This is an amazing read. A fast paced and
exciting thriller you will not be able to put down.And all the way
through you are thinking just what is it – what is so big? And who is the client?
Compulsive and intriguing book will draw you in, fascinate and
terrify you in equal measures. Not to be
missed. Most highly recommended.
