Description

The Frenchman returns in Dark Arena, a super-charged espionage thriller from Jack Beaumont.

When an agent of the Directorate-General for External Security (DGSE) is brutally murdered in front of his family, the “Company” swings into action, determined to track down the killers.

Meanwhile, operative Alec de Payns of the secretive Y Division is turning a Russian intelligence officer by blackmail. His team must establish who is posting classified material against the Kremlin to embassies all over Europe—and who is killing their operatives.

The clues lead to a secret meeting of businessmen, terrorists, and mercenaries on a luxury yacht in the Mediterranean, which Alec must infiltrate. What he discovers there will set Europe on course for catastrophe. Can de Payns and his team establish who is setting up an assassination? Who is the target? And will they be able to stop it?

A deadly Europe-wide manhunt, Dark Arena is another electrifying thriller from ex-DGSE spy Jack Beaumont, delivering all the taut plotting, superb action, and authentic spycraft that made The Frenchman a critically acclaimed bestseller.
