A return to the period adventure thriller in WHERE DEAD MEN MEET re-establishes Mark Mills as:

'A master storyteller' Val McDermid. For fans of William Boyd, Charles Cumming or Robert Harris

Paris, 1937. Luke Hamilton - a junior air intelligence officer at the British Embassy - finds himself the target of an assassination attempt. A clear case of mistaken identity, or so it first appears. As Luke is hunted across a continent sliding towards war, he comes to learn that the answers lie deep in a past that predates his abandonment as a baby on the steps of an orphanage twenty-five years ago.

From the author of the bestselling THE SAVAGE GARDEN, and set against a terrific backdrop of Europe on the cusp of the Second World War, this is a compelling novel, rich in adventure, espionage, secrets and lies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reminiscent of Eric Ambler's brilliant thrillers... Where Dead Men Meet is a well-told, exciting story * The Sunday Times *
Mills keeps the pages turning * Belfast Telegraph *
Secrets, lies and nail-biting moments feature in the fine storytelling * Choice *
Elegantly plotted... superb period drama * The Sunday Mirror *
Handling the twists and turns of his plot with cool dexterity * Daily Mail *
WHERE DEAD MEN MEET is a grand adventure, in the tradition of Graham Greene's 'entertainments,' and John Buchan's before that - a sweeping race through Europe for the highest possible stakes, in the year before the Anschluss. Here's hoping it's only the first of many exploits for Luke and Pippi -- JOSEPH FINDER, New York Times bestselling author of PARANOIA and THE SWITCH
Believable characters, a richly detailed historical setting, and a story that keeps the reader's attention glued until the final page * Library Journal *
