December

In the coldest winter in living memory, Russia turns off the gas to Britain. Embittered mercenary Alex Devereux has the fate of Europe in his hands. Under secret instructions from the British government, Alex finds himself at the heart of a plot to overthrow a new Russian dictator, Viktor Krymov. Alex must attack the Siberian prison camp where former Russian football captain Roman Raskolnikov is being held. Roman is the solitary hope of bringing down the regime. But only if Alex gets to him in time… Working with an unstable Russian oligarch and his former lover, Lara, Alex races against the clock towards a violent showdown in Moscow – with the highest imaginable stakes. Combining action, history and political intrigue, Steel creates a truly epic modern thriller. For anyone who’s a fan of Robert Harris, Frederick Forsyth or Alistair MacLean, December is a must read.
