John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher, returns in book six of the bestselling spy thriller series

In a remote location on the Scottish coast, a prisoner exchange is taking place in the dead of night. An exchange so secret and so politically sensitive that only a handful of people know about it.

The exchange is sabotaged in an armed attack, and both prisoners disappear.

One is a Russian professor of physics.

The other is one of Britain's most notorious captives. A traitor who, almost three years earlier, came close to triggering war between Russia and NATO.

His name is Richard Rossiter.

John Purkiss is sent to hunt Rossiter down. For him, the mission has a personal element. Rossiter corrupted Purkiss's fiancee, Claire, more than half a decade earlier. And he was instrumental in her death.

Once before, Purkiss spared Rossiter's life. This time he won't make the same mistake.

Purkiss finds himself in an uneasy alliance with a CIA agent and a Russian FSB operative, neither of whose motives he can fully trust. As they close in on Rossiter, it becomes clear that his escape was made possible only by leaked information from an insider.

And that Rossiter's intentions will, once again, have catastrophic consequences for the world.

By turns harrowing, shocking and fraught with nerve-shredding suspense, NEMESIS is the latest and most thrilling novel in the John Purkiss series.
