A DEVIL IS WAITING The President is coming to London, but not to an entirely warm welcome. A fanatical mullah is offering a blessing to anyone who will assassinate the President, and though most London Muslims think the mullah has crossed the line, a few think otherwise.Urgently, Sean Dillon, General Charles Ferguson, and the rest of the small band known as the "Prime Minister's private army" are called in, augmented by an extra-ordinary new recruit, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon. She has her own contacts and ways of working, but the more she explores the threat, the more she discovers herself in a very dark place indeed. THE DEATH TRADEAn eminent Iranian scientist has made a startling breakthrough in nuclear weapons research, but he can't stand the thought of his country owning the bomb. He would run if he could, but if he does, his family dies. He is desperate, he doesn't know what to do.It is up to Sean Dillon and the rest of the small band known as the "Prime Minister's private army" to come up with a plan. Most particularly, it is up to their newest member, an intelligence captain and Afghan war hero named Sara Gideon, who thinks there just might be a way to bring it off. But plans have a way of coming up against the unexpected. And as the operation spins out, from Paris and Syria to Iran and the Saudi Arabian desert, there is very much that is unexpected, indeed. And much blood that will be spilled.
