Seven years ago, energy analyst Mark Wallace’s twelve-year-old son disappeared. Mark never stopped searching for him, but there has been no lead, no motive, no trace… Until today.

But today Mark has also been handed clandestine data on Saudi oil reserves and a Russian oil pipeline has been destroyed in an apparent terrorist attack.

Coincidence or conspiracy?

Together with his now teenage daughter, Mark must unearth the terrifying connections between his family’s tragedy and a looming energy war…

REVIEWS

Just now and then a new thriller comes along that knocks your socks off, a book that fizzes with energy and comes complete with a plot to die for, characters that you care about and a denouement that forces that breath out of your body.... Taut as a wire, this is the best debut thriller I've read this year - by a country mile

Economist

A skilfully crafted, highly intelligent page-turning thriller, filled with arresting characters... the tension mounts relentlessly
