This is a blisteringly action-packed adventure thriller from an exciting Steel Dagger award-winning writer. Jack Valentine is back...When a set of dog tags, supposedly belonging to a seaman missing since the early 1950s, is washed up on a beach in modern day Co. Antrim, Jack Valentine 'deadbeat ex-spook' finds himself being pulled back toward his previous life once more. But what can the disturbance of an old North Sea arms dump, dating back to the end of the Second World War, have to do with a botched US mission to Iraq in the early 1990s? And why are faces Jack knows all too well suddenly appearing in the wintry landscape of Northern Ireland? From Ireland to Iraq, the MOD to the MRU, and including many familiar characters from the previous two books (and enough double crossing, violence and intrigue to satisfy all seasoned thriller readers) "Black Cat Black Dog" is the most exciting and gripping yet of the Jack Valentine thrillers. This is the third Jack Valentine thriller, following "The Sirius Crossing", winner of the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award, and "The Day of the Dead", acclaimed in the "Observer" as "gripping stuff" and "a welcome return." It contains hugely topical subject matter, as Creed pitches Jack Valentine into a plot rooted in a weapons of mass destruction conspiracy dating back to the first war in Iraq. It is a great new package, published for the first time as a special price hardback, to reach a wider thriller audience.
