Christopher ‘Arrow’ Arrowsmith joined Special Forces to see action. Unfortunately, he had picked one of the worst moments of the Twentieth Century in which to see it. Middle East tensions are on the rise, and Ireland is a time bomb waiting to explode. Through his wits as much as his training in weapons and martial arts, ‘Arrow’ must survive in a world where nothing is as it seems, where strangers could always be the enemy and only the slightest scratch reveals the terrible violence lurking below the surface; a violence that knows no borders, no compassion and no mercy. Now as he is sucked into the secret world of undercover intelligence, a terrible violence is preparing to rip the country he loves apart, feeding a frenzy of bloodlust that threatens the very survival of his nation’s way of life as unholy alliances are forged. With only his lethal skills to guide and protect him, he must cultivate friends in the strangest of places as he travels across continents and oceans in his quest to remove the enemies of his Motherland.

Everyone who dies in this amazing book is real!

    I read this book and was hanging on the edge of my seat. The tension – enough to increase my heart rate considerably. The plot involves many characters and in the murky, twilight world of smoke and mirrors, takes the reader to dusty deserts in Afghanistan, murderous mountain passes, covered in snow. Seedy city apartment blocks in Berlin where it seems to be persistently pouring with grey rain, and pubs in Ireland stuck in remote location’s supping the Liffey Water. Every decision made by Arrow has to be precise, as his life depends on it. Various intelligence agents’ try entering this covert world where one mistake will cost your life. A character called Ibrahim is the one person he can trust, like Solvite he won’t let you down, the man is a legend. He breathes loyalty to his companions and fire to the enemy! Many other characters could not be trusted, as they increase their chance of an early demise by being a double agent. It is frighteningly real and each turn of the page was crackling with high voltage. You will also be subjected to adventure on the high seas, in a beautiful yacht stuffed with contraband, as payment for illicit weapons for the nefarious activities of terrorist organisations. Orchestrated and arranged by Governments and their agent’s, along with high ranking terrorist’s and gangsters. A highly volatile mix of extremely dangerous Characters. I will read this again, it’s a belter! Don’t take a chance; buy this book by Christopher.

    The Assassins Code 1

    Having read ‘Beneath the Poppy Fields’ by Christopher Chance and finding it to be riveting, I had no hesitation in picking up another tale by this author ‘The Assassins Code 1’. Whilst most of the action in Poppy Fields took place in a small area below ground, by contrast the Assassins Code takes the reader on a journey across Europe, Asia and Africa. The hero ‘Arrow’, tasked with an operation by the British Secret Intelligence Service, is in constant danger as he infiltrates terrorist organisations and mixes with hardened assassins. There is the sense that no-one can be trusted, not even those who purport to be assisting Arrow in his mission, men and women who are as courageous as they are cunning. Who is a double agent and who is secure? If you enjoy books about adventure, drug-smuggling, intelligence operations and survival, then this is the one for you. A page-turner to be sure!
