They had no idea of the catastrophe they were about to unleash. Welcome to the high-octane world of Olivia Wolfe. As an investigative journalist, Wolfe lives her life in constant peril. Hunted by numerous enemies who are seldom what they appear to be, she must unravel a complex web of lies to reveal an even more terrifying truth. From the poppy palaces of Afghanistan and Antarctica’s forbidding windswept ice sheets, to a top-secret military base in the Nevada desert, Wolfe’s journey will ultimately lead her to a man who would obliterate civilisation. She must make an impossible choice: save one life – or prevent the deaths of millions. To enter, tell us the job title of Olive Wolfe.

Chief Inspector Bish Ortley of the London Met, divorced and still grieving the death of his son, has been drowning his anger in Scotch. Something has to give, and he’s no sooner suspended from the force than a busload of British students is subjected to a deadly bomb attack across the Channel. Bish’s daughter was on the bus. Also on the bus is Violette LeBrac. Raised in Australia, Violette has a troubled background. Thirteen years ago her grandfather bombed a London supermarket, killing dozens of people. Her mother, Noor, is serving a life sentence in connection with the incident. But before Violette’s part in the French tragedy can be established she disappears. With its cast of unforgettable characters, social insight and wry wit, this is an irresistible story about human identity, lost children and the nature of real love.
