What if the person you're ordered to kill
Is the woman you want to protect?


Michael North, assassin and spy-for-hire, is very good at killing bad guys. But what happens when his shadowy bosses at the dark heart of the British government order him to kill a good woman instead?

Rising political star, Honor Jones, MP, has started asking dangerous questions about the men running her country. The trouble is, she doesn't know when to stop. And, now that he's met her, neither does North...

'Grabs you from page one and won't let you go ... Action-packed from start to finish - but with tenderness and great characterisation too. Fast, sharply written, clever and intense' JEREMY VINE, BBC2.
