December give-away: Summer action

Having enjoyed and reviewed a wonderfully wide range of books in 2011, I’m finishing the year off with some summer action. I’ve just started reading Chris Allen’s action thriller Defender of the Faith and I’m completely sucked in. I can’t wait to have a bit of extra reading time over the Chrissy break to really get into this well constructed, very compelling adventure.

“A British agent is brutally murdered, a President is in danger and the fate of the small West African nation, Malfajiri, lies in the balance.

Enter Alex Morgan, the new star agent of INTERPOL’s ‘Intelligence, Recovery, Protection & Infiltration Division’: INTREPID. Part-policeman, part-soldier, part-spy, Morgan and his fellow INTREPID operatives are the faceless, unassailable strangers among us; serving the world and operating beyond the influence of the most powerful nations.

In Defender of the Faith, Alex Morgan is sent on his first solo mission to hunt down the source of soviet surplus weapons haemorrhaging into Africa and Asia, but gets more than he bargained for, unraveling a complex web of deceit with links to the very heart of the British diplomatic community.

A heart-pounding, no-holds-barred chase, spanning the dark continent of Africa to the crystalline waters of Sydney, culminates in a fight to the end to stop vicious renegade intelligence officer Victor Lundt and uncover the ultimate power behind him.

If only Morgan can stay alive long enough to bring them all to justice.”

I’m thinking that this novel will take me through to the end of the year, and so I’ll post my review of the book early in the new year. In the meantime, you’ve got a chance to win a copy of the e-book (for Kindle).
