Product Description

AN AMAZON TOP 10 TECHNOTHRILLER

BOOK ONE IN THE JOHN PURKISS SERIES


***** "Superb spy thriller...The prose is so vivid you can almost feel the action as it takes place..." - Jeremy Duns, author of The Dark Chronicles

***** "A high octane, fast-paced spy thriller... superb and captivating story... a great, heart pounding read!" James Masters, Goodreads reviewer

*****"[J]oins Lee Child, David Baldacci and John D. MacDonald on my list of great spinners of thrillers." Edward F. Corbin, Amazon reviewer

The police have Internal Affairs departments. British Intelligence has John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher.

Purkiss's job is straightforward. Track down agents of the intelligence services who are taking kickbacks, committing crimes, or otherwise abusing their positions. And bring them to justice.

Straightforward doesn't mean easy...

After a renegade British former spymaster, Fallon, is sighted in the Baltic city of Tallinn on the eve of a historic summit meeting between the Russian and Estonian presidents, Purkiss is despatched to investigate, and uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to tear Europe, and the world, apart.

But Purkiss has personal reasons for going after Fallon. Four years ago, Fallon was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Purkiss's fiancée, a murder Purkiss himself witnessed.

Now, in an atmosphere of treachery and sudden violence, as the countdown begins to a potentially catastrophic conflict between Russia and the West, Purkiss must keep his desire for revenge under control for the sake of the world's - and his own - survival.

Described in Amazon reviews as a "cracker of a spy thriller" with "superbly choreographed action scenes" that "leave you feeling almost dizzy", RATCATCHER is both an adrenaline-fuelled action adventure novel and a hardboiled mystery story which exposes the world of the spy, in which few motives and actions are purely black or white.
