Smoke and Mirrors
Three Short Blasts
Dirty Business #1
Acer Sansom, a British soldier believed long dead, resurfaces, shot in the guts in the home of a still-warm dead man.
With the help of a high-profile British politician, Acer becomes embroiled in a mission for retribution and justice for the loved ones and the life he has lost.
Acer’s search takes him from the south of England to the teeming metropolis of Istanbul and beyond where the action twists and turns as the story builds to an explosive climax.
Loose Ends #2
Having narrowly escaped death in Turkey, Acer Sansom is persuaded to return to the UK. He is now seeking British justice for those implicated in the events that robbed him of his family.
However, the protection he has been promised is compromised by his powerful and shadowy enemies – men who are determined that their secrets will remain safe.
Acer must once again rely on his wits, his mettle, his training and his luck to outwit those he seeks to bring to account so that he can honour his debts to the living and the dead.
Smoke and Mirrors #3
Reeling and vulnerable from devastating personal news, Acer Sansom has agreed to do a one-off job for Crouch of British Intelligence. He’s not doing it for money. He’s not doing it for his country. He’s doing it for the children.
Acer goes undercover in Iran looking for evidence that missing British scientists are being forced to work in one of the regime’s nuclear facilities.
The straightforward reconnaissance assignment quickly becomes something far more complicated and dangerous. In light of new knowledge and reason, Acer finds himself with no alternative but to risk his life and the lives of others with a change of plan.
Deep State #4
Acer Sansom has discovered that the daughter he believed was dead is alive and well. He even knows where she is. Now he wants her back. But the Turkish patriarch under whose protection she is living requires Acer to do a job for him first.
With limited options – each of them involving him risking his life – and a ticking clock, Acer is destined to find out how far he will go to get his child back and that luck has its limits.
