Do you love gripping espionage thrillers full of great twists and plenty of action?
Meet Thomas Bladen. Smart, sardonic, and in mortal danger.
LONDON COMES UNDER ATTACK AND BLADEN’S LIFE IS FALLING APART.
As the security services scramble to deal with the aftermath of a coordinated terror attack, undercover operative Thomas Bladen is in deep trouble. His department is taken over by MI5, his girlfriend’s gone, and he’s “lost” a handgun during surveillance of a politician.
Then two of his senior colleagues disappear. Who’s taken them and why? Bladen’s search for answers is blocked at every turn. Is there a double agent in his team?
In a thrilling conclusion, Bladen must face his doubts and put his life at risk against forces whose allegiance is unclear. This is the reckoning.
If you like Mark Dawson, Rob Sinclair, Lee Child, or Vince Flynnyou’ll enjoy these fast-paced thrillers.

FLASHPOINT My Review
This is a great read with an interesting premise which I felt was well researched by the author. I read this book in one sitting which is something that I don’t do often. Flashpoint works well as a standalone. I haven’t read any of the others but I think I would’ve got more from this book if I had.
This story deals with a terrorist attack in London and I felt the author tackles this with a lot of authenticity. There are a lot of twists in the story so it feels taught throughout. There’s a good balance between the man protagonist, Thomas’s personal life and work life which I enjoyed.
I’ll definitely be looking for more from this author in the future.
