From property agent, to government agent.

Autumn 1990, property agent and TA soldier Rupert Brett is facing a crisis. The international property market is imploding as fund managers haggle desperately with a world in deep recession. The UK markets are against him.

Calling once more upon his specialist skills, the UK Government task him to open a new international property office in Buenos Aires and spy for them. Brett encounters threats and danger, including a traitor on his own side.

Finding data crucial to the safety of the Falkland Islands, Rupert and Chris Adams a mysterious SAS soldier, are trapped and alone as they fight to escape before they are found and killed.

This is the second book in the Rupert Brett Deal series of international financial thrillers.

A Heart-Pounding, Pulse-Racing Triumph!

This series just gets better – and, after the first, I really didn’t think that was possible!

Rupert Brett is now working as a Property Manager and a part-time soldier with the TA; it’s getting harder to make deals in the UK with the world wide recession. Then the UK government get in touch yet again to ask for his help; they propose sending him to Buenos Aires to do what he knows best, open a property office only this time it will be his cover for spying for them. With the help of an SAS soldier, Chris Adams, posing as his colleague they are charged with finding out vital information – only, as we know, Brett tends to attract unwanted attention and what seemed like an in and out task turns out to be far more dangerous.

The complex, intricate and completely realistic plot in this one must have required a mind-boggling amount of research – and it shows. Entirely believable, I was sucked in from the very start and it was a hair-raising ride. My heart pounded and my pulse raced as the excitement reached fever pitch, but this isn’t just an action thriller, it’s so much deeper than that. A powerful story, this is crafted by a talented author who really knows how to keep his readers focused – and thrilled – from beginning to end. As the story twists and turns, I just HAD to keep reading and find out what happened next which is how I found myself racing through the pages in the early hours of the morning. I can’t wait to read the next one! An absolutely cracking novel and one I cannot recommend highly enough. Easily worth all five glowing stars.

My thanks to the author for my copy; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

As a lover of crime thrillers and mystery, I turned what is seen by others as a dull 9 – 5 job into something that is exciting, as close to real life as possible, with Rupert Brett, my international man of mystery whose day job is that of a Chartered Surveyor.

Rupert is an ordinary man thrown into extraordinary circumstances who uses his wit, guile and training to survive.

Each book is written from my own experiences, as close to the truth as possible, set against world events that really happened. I go out and experience all the weapons, visit the places Rupert travels to, speak to the technical experts and ensure that it as realistic, as possible allowing you to delve deep in to the mystery, losing yourself in it for a few hours.
