Publisher Description

With ‘peak capitalism’ everything has a price – including living, breathing human flesh…

When a young British couple are brutally murdered on a beach while holidaying on a Thai tourist island, Kate O’Sullivan is sent to investigate for The Crusader newspaper. Two Burmese fishermen have been charged with the crime, but the victims’ parents believe there has been a cover up, and Kate soon learns that all is not as it seems in paradise.

Hunter, the renegade CIA agent Kate had a brief fling with, is obsessed with her. When he learns she’s carrying his child, he follows her to the island, hoping to convince her that his serial killing ways are over and for her to give him a second chance.

But dark forces are at play and evil men who make a fortune from trading in flesh are threatened by Kate’s presence on their island. Soon after arriving, her life spins dangerously out of control as she unwittingly invites their attention – and becomes a potential sex slave herself…

Another rapid-fire crime thriller from this author – a cracking page turner that will have you breathless by the final page!

This second novel in The Hack Trilogy of fast paced international crime thrillers will take you on a rollercoaster journey deep into the dark heart of ‘peak capitalism’ and the vile trade in human flesh and blood. Also featuring Chief Lee, an incorruptible and relentless investigator with the Royal Thai Police.

You'll encounter Machiavellian billionaire slave traders, an intriguing murder mystery, an international conspiracy, and a ruthless Arab prince and his entourage - along with our intrepid heroes who find themselves in grave peril.

Plenty of action in this adventure thriller on land, sea and in the air. The climax aboard a super yacht - one of the largest privately owned vessels in the world - will take your breath away.

Inspired by actual events.

This thrilling second instalment in The Hack Trilogy can be read as a stand alone tale, but why not check out the riveting rapid-fire first volume, The Hack, while you're here?

Trigger warning:
Frankly, if you need a trigger warning then it's probably best to look for a different novel. Contains 'hard-hitting realism' some readers may find disturbing.
