Target Zero: A gripping British thriller full of action and adventure Anthony Riches
 Michael Bale, 2

Michael Bale, an elite close protection officer, must locate Russian military-grade warheads in the second gripping British thriller from Anthony Riches.

'Fast-moving ... The Bill meets Jack Reacher' THE TIMES

Former close protection officer Michael Bale has a dangerous skillset. One that many men – good and bad – want to make use of.

That's why a powerful Russian oligarch wants to hire Michael to protect him. And with Michael's wife gone and his track record with the Met in tatters, Michael doesn't feel he has a choice.

But when a terrorist attack on the M11 kills a police firearms team, MI5 suspect that Michael's new client and the Russian GRU are involved. The bomb was a Sunburn missile warhead, military-grade and able to vaporise everything in its blast radius. And there are more warheads out there.

Blackmailed by MI5 into spying on the client he's been hired to protect, Michael is pushed to his limits by this new double-agent status. If he doesn't locate the other warheads, thousands of civilians will die – and time is running out...

Anthony Riches
Anthony Riches, coming from a family with three generations of army service, has always been fascinated by military history, psychology and weaponry – which led him to write the Empire series set in ancient Rome. The idea for his first contemporary thriller, Nemesis, came to him under the influence of jetlag at two in the morning in a Brisbane hotel room. He lives in rural Suffolk with his wife, two dogs the size of ponies and a bad tempered cat. www.anthonyriches.com @AnthonyRiches
