At last, a truly good spy story you can step out of reality with and enter the world of fast cars, street chases, villains and of course heroes, at the turn of a page.

Fast paced, dramatic and challenging, super-spy Alan McQueen finds himself somewhere other than where he thought he would be when he reluctantly agrees to come out of retirement and take a “soft” mission to Singapore.


The death a of friend and fellow agent sets the scene for a very modern day thriller placed firmly in the world of money laundering, nuclear melt downs , of course the seedy streets of Cambodia, Singapore and  his old haunts of Vietnam. Throw in a cast of deadly characters, from both sides of the political arena, the long and treacherous arm of Canberra along with friends old and new and you have one terrific read.

Expect the unexpected in this dash through the modern day jungles of espionage, age old treachery and plain good old fashioned story telling.

One all spy thriller fans will truly enjoy.
