*** An explosive international thriller from the Hollywood legend and British icon Sir Michael Caine***
'Excellent, with an old-school hero and a plot rich in twists and turns . . . Caine's debut is the thriller you hoped he'd write' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
DCI Harry Taylor has no respect for red tape or political reputations - but he's great at catching criminals.
And all his unorthodox skills will be needed as an extraordinary situation unfolds on his doorstep: a metal box of radioactive material is found at a dump in Stepney, East London, but before the police can arrive it is stolen in a violent raid.
With security agencies across the world on red alert, it's Harry and his unconventional team from the Met who must hit the streets in search of a lead. They soon have two wildly different suspects, aristocratic art dealer Julian Smythe in London and oligarch Vladimir Voldrev in Barbados. But the pressure is on. How much time does Harry have, and how many more players will join the action, before the missing uranium is lighting up the sky?
Deadly Game is a compelling, fast-paced novel of international intrigue and twisting suspense from a legendary actor and British icon.
