Mystery & Detective

A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britains most precious colony, Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend. Kit Probyn, Foreign Office veteran with a safe pair of hands and no previous experience of the dark arts, is to be the Ministers eyes and ears on the ground. His red telephone.br>
So delicate is the operation that even the Ministers personal private secretary, Toby Bell, has been kept out of the loop. Suspecting a disastrous conspiracy, Toby attempts to forestall it, but is promptly posted overseas.br>
Three years on, summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house and closely watched by Probyns daughter Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service.br>
If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent?
