British intelligence operative and hardened assassin, Max McLean, must discover who’s killing the members of his team in this new electrifying thriller from James Brabazon, the author of The Break Line.

Soldier, assassin, and special agent - Max heads a group of highly secretive hit men called The Unknown who deliver off-the-books justice on behalf of the British Government.

Sent on a straightforward operation to kill a terrorist commander, Max walks into a trap. He narrowly escapes with his life - and a clue: an expertly forged hundred dollar bill clutched in his dead target’s fist. To find out who has set him up, and why, Max follows the money trail first to Moscow, and then to Israel and Burma on a high-stakes investigation that leads him deep into the world of international organized crime and the corrupt heart of the British Secret Intelligence Service.

Max is running out of time to find the answer before his enemy closes in. In this brutal game of spies nothing is at it seems: one by one the operatives of The Unknown are hunted down and killed; foreign powers prepare to move against England; and Max McLean must face the shocking possibility that the traitor he seeks has been with him all along.

Story Locale: Moscow, United Kingdom, Burma

Series Overview: Max McLean is an assassin for a top secret British Intelligence Agency. He takes the jobs that no one else will.

THE SECOND IN A PERFECT THRILLER SERIES: The Break Line is a high-concept story coupled with propulsive action, and this next installment to the Max McLean series pulls no punches

GOOD THRILLER BONES: The Burma scenes have the authenticity of Frederick Forsyth, while the action has the brutal intensity of Lee Child; the plot itself has the plausible science of James Rollins

AUTHOR WROTE A VERY WELL REVIEWED MEMOIR: My Friend the Mercenary was the story of Brabazon’s experiences in the Liberian Civil War; it was praised by the Spectator, the Sunday Business Post, and the Sunday Times

Praise for The Break Line:

“Breathless, complex, and seriously hardcore - don’t plan to sleep tonight”—#1 New York Times bestselling author, Lee Child

“A wonderfully crafted story of action, history, and secrets that is as imaginative as it is compelling.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Bishop’s Pawn

The Break Line punches you in the stomach on the first page and then plunges you - still doubled over - into the most harrowing world of covert operations I have ever read. I have worked in those places and covered those wars…Brabazon gets it exactly right. With a terrifyingly precise eye and an irresistible prose style, he has created a world that is almost impossible to leave. I finished the book three days ago and feel like I’m still waiting for the choppers to come take me home…”—Sebastian Junger, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Storm

The Break Line is a riveting page-turner, a gruesome delight, and a study of what lies in the shadowed corners of the human heart.”—Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan X

“A natural-born writer with wit and a gift for Prose, strong and lucid and nonstop suspense…”—Ted Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Overkill

“Taut, tough and visceral - and, most of all, written with a breath-taking authenticity”—Raymond Khoury, Bestselling author of The Last Templar
