‘an absolute belter’ IAN RANKIN

 

‘The British Jack Reacher’The Sunday Times


‘Packed with deception and espionage … Kent has become the British Baldacci, and there can be no higher praise.’ Daily Mail

 

Don’t miss Book 5 from criminal barrister and crime author Tony Kent: THE SHADOW NETWORK

 

How do you take down an enemy when no one believes they exist? When the lawyers of alleged war criminal Hannibal Strauss are caught up in a terror attack in The Hague, barrister Michael Devlin immediately suspects all is not what it seems. Teaming up once more with Agent Joe Dempsey, they must find who’s behind it all before any more innocent lives are lost.


With their key witness on the run and assassins on their tail, their only lead is a codename: the Monk, a legendary and mysterious foreign agent with a fearsome reputation. But what is his stake in this dangerous game? And just who is part of his shadowy network of spies? Caught in a complicated web of lies, secrets and double agents, there’s no one Dempsey and Devlin can trust but themselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘The story starts with a bang … Kent deploys his own experience with security and intelligence agencies to create an authentic-seeming, high-octane conspiracy thriller, with plenty of action and gunplay.’ Financial Times ‘Kent is part of a new wave of cutting-edge thriller writers.’ The Sun ‘The British Jack Reacher . . . As an action thriller this bears comparison with the work of Lee Child and David Baldacci, with fight scenes ranging from shootouts and unarmed combat to a helicopter attack.’ The Sunday Times ‘[A] crackling political thriller, packed with deception and espionage…Tense and fast paced, it has a fierce edge that questions whether the world as we know it can survive. Kent has become the British Baldacci, and there can be no higher praise.’ Daily Mail ‘An absolute belter.’ Ian Rankin ‘What a ride! The very definition of a fast-paced thriller. Great characters. Bang up to date plotting. Tony Kent’s best yet.’ Imran Mahmood, author of All I Said Was True ‘All of Tony Kent's books pack a real punch, and The Shadow Network is no exception! The action starts on page one and it does not relent. An absolute page turner.’ Ava Glass, author of The Chase ‘Starts with a bang and doesn’t let go. An edge-of-the-seat thriller.’ Kate London, author of The Misper ‘The latest Dempsey and Devlin offering starts with a literal bang, before continuing apace like the proverbial runaway train, switchbacking between Europe and America, conspiracy and murder, shadowy villains and deftly drawn heroes. A rollicking good thriller.' Vaseem Khan, author of Death of a Lesser God ‘Perfectly plotted, this adrenaline-fueled, action-packed thriller has high stakes and emotional punch in equal measure. I couldn't put it down!’ Steph Broadribb, author of Death on the Beach ‘Totally fantastic . . . Unrelenting tension, nerve-shredding action, and lightening pace. Joe Dempsey is this decade's Jack Bauer.’ Neil Lancaster, author of Blood Runs Cold   ‘Tony Kent is an outstanding thriller writer. The Shadow Network starts with a bang and draws you into a story with more action-packed twists and turns than a nitro-charged rollercoaster. Kent had me hanging on every word until the very end.’ Adam Hamdy, author of White Fire ‘A blistering, bruising and utterly addictive thriller that never misses.’ Neil Broadfoot, author of Unmarked Graves ‘Thrillers don’t get much more action packed than this. A barnstormer of a book, that’ll leave you roller-coaster dizzy by the time it’s done with you. Danger, drama and deceit dripping from every page!’ Robert Rutherford, author of Seven Days 'A thriller of such physicality and pace that you’ll feel bruised after reading The Shadow Network. Another knockout from the British Baldacci.’ Paul Waters, author of Blackwatertown ‘Superb . . . The characters are brilliant, the plotting is top notch, the pacing is great – you find yourself taking a breath and digesting what’s happened but also absolutely not wanting to put it down… this book is really going to get under your skin!’ Fiona Sharp, Independent Book Reviews    ‘Jam packed with tension and action from the off, this book had me in its thrall immediately and did not let me go until I read that very last page. A tale of corruption, conspiracy and bloody brilliant misdirection’ Jen Lucas, Jen Med’s Book Reviews   ‘A pulsating page turner, that will leave you breathless . . . this is an outstanding read, a high-octane thriller which combines all the right elements, plot, character, storytelling, pure action scenes . . . Tony Kent has taken the thriller to another level, I cannot recommend The Shadow Network enough.’ AMWBooks
