Jude Lyon of MI6 has narrowly foiled the traitor Fowle's plot to level London, but the public are demanding answers.

Answers the government doesn't have.

As the country reels, a new populist political figure carves a stratospheric trajectory - but is he all he seems?

In Moscow the President is furious. The world now knows the destructive power of the programme his people had been developing, and as the Russians scramble to understand how it got into Fowle's hands, they start to worry that perhaps it could be used against them . . .

But Jude Lyon has just one question on his mind:
Guy Fowle is missing, with nothing left to lose,

So what is he planning next?

Seething with political machinations, burning with blood-thumping action, and featuring the best returning MI6 operative since James Bond The Survivor brings the espionage novel crashing into the modern day.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An engrossing, flawless fusion of globe-trotting adventure and evocative writing - Sunday Times Thriller of the Month

The Survivor, like its predecessors, combines high-tech expertise with bare-knuckle thrills. It's like being strapped to a rocket. A triumph. - Mick Herron, on The Survivor

Since their debuts in The Stranger, MI6 operative Jude Lyon's antagonism with rogue terrorist Guy Fowle has been among the most memorable in contemporary thrillerdom. Conway's military experience imbues the bloody showdowns with bone-jarring authenticity. In the final reckoning, however, this is a duel between two big beasts - the old school crazed villain and Lyon's modern incarnation of Galahad, a paladin with feelings, but up for it when what he holds dear is threatened - The Times

Simon Conway is one of the great thriller writers of our times - and in Jude Lyon has created a truly fascinating investigator . . . This is a proper international thriller, with Conway sweeping the reader from Belarus to Africa to London, and all the time bringing the scene to life with the lightest of touches - Holly Watt, author of To The Lions, on The Survivor

If you like your villains suave, if irredeemably vicious and evil, and your heroes incredibly brave and resourceful, Simon Conway's The Surviror, a hold-on-tight action-packed thriller, ticks all the boxes with considerable brio - Independent

A former British army officer and overseas aid worker, Conway brings insider knowledge of the military and geopolitics to add an extra layer to the finale in a terrifyingly plausible trilogy - Financial Times

A nail-bitingly believable cloak-and-dagger thriller - Peterborough Telegraph

Conway's military experience brings insider detail, but the riveting storytelling of the near-apocalyptic struggle between dark and light is the real triumph - Financial Times

Praise for Simon Conway:

The Saboteur takes his storytelling to a new level - Financial Times, on The Saboteur

A novel with visceral thrills and the grand chess of international espionage. Throw in a hero and an anti-hero for our times, and you have one of the best thrillers of recent years - Misha Glenny, author of McMafia, on The Stranger

The Stranger renders Simon Conway one of the 21st century's masters of the thriller genre - Jon Snow on The Stranger

There's a healthy crop of younger spy writers just now, and Simon Conway is among the pick of the bunch. His military background renders the action scenes bloodily and the novel's apocalyptic scenario all too plausibly - The Times on The Saboteur

Violent, authentic and alarmingly believable story about modern spying - the Sun on The Saboteur

It's a hugely entertaining read, featuring the nastiest, most charismatic villain of recent years, and barely pauses for breath throughout - Mick Herron, author of Slough House, on The Saboteur

This book puts Simon Conway into the top flight of thriller writers probing the darker corners of the 'war on terror' - Allan Little, BBC special correspondent on The Stranger

“The usual exciting denouement”

A large part of this final in the Guy Fowle trilogy is given over to a cleverly written parody of recent UK government events, but this is not what I read Simon Conway for. We're about a third of the way through... More
