In the '70s and '80s, Jacob Marley was MI5's most revered and feared agent. But he turned his back on Queen and country to pursue a more peaceful existence. Now, 15 years later and with his life collapsing around him, Marley has returned to find that the world of British espionage is more dangerous than ever before.

Ageing, heartbroken and off his game, Marley must now face off against Jerome Quinn. A former MI5 man himself, Quinn leads Odin's Sword, a neo-Nazi terror organisation that has declared war on Britain's Muslim community. He's every bit as ruthless as Marley, only younger, stronger and smarter.

To beat him, Marley will need every shred of courage and experience at his disposal – and it still might not be enough...
