(The third book in the Tom Marlowe series)
A novel by

They thought he was finished - they were wrong.

British MI5 “Section D” agent Tom Marlowe has been burnt, his Security Services clearance deleted, and his protection from foreign agencies removed.

Travelling America following the events of Target Locked, Tom takes a covert job from a US senator he has connections with - to attend a West Coast event she's speaking at as a ghost, to watch from the shadows, and inform her of any threats he finds.

However, when he finds that her biggest threats are his own country's agents - rogue MI5 officers with a kill-order for her, he's given a choice; do nothing and be welcomed back into the British Security Services - or attempt to stop it before it occurs, and be damned with her.

Now opposing his own country while exposing a long-believed-dead Government cabal, and facing agents he once trained and fought with, Marlowe must get to the very centre of this conspiracy - in a journey that takes him across Europe and back to London, ending with an explosive reunion with the very men who trained him...

Gripping, thrilling, filled with action and written by New York Times #1 Bestseller Tony Lee writing as Jack Gatland, Covert Action is his third Tom Marlowe thriller, and is perfect for fans of the Bourne movies, Burn Notice, Jack Ryan, James Patterson, Mark Dawson, Lee Child, Mick Herron and Robert Ludlum, among others.
