The Fallen Agent released on 10th October 2017.
I am really excited to be part of the blog tour for this book. My thanks to Caroline for allowing me a spot.
Jess Albion has recently started a new life on the other side of the world with a new identity. She used to be MI5. Then a job went bad, someone died and she was made an example of in the British courts. But MI5 look after their own. Or they did until rumours of a planned Al Qaeda biological terror attack on London started circulating. Now someone in the British security services is giving agents up in return for information. No price, it seems, is too high to save London from the ultimate threat.
When Jess’s fresh start is compromised she has a choice to make: run and hide and spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder or go looking for the threat and snuff it out. On her own, she’d run, but she has Nick on her side.
Well where to start with this book. First off I absolutely loved it. It is a book that I am finding very hard to review without giving away any spoilers.
It starts with a murder, but of the wrong person. From there the reader is transported to New Zealand, this is the new home of the intended victim. Jess Albion has been given a new identity and a new life. It is not one she had ever envisioned for herself, but her past still visits her in her dreams and nightmares. These dreams soon start to become reality, all she had left behind of her own life comes rocking up and smashing her door down.
With the help of Nathan, her colleague in MI5, they intend to try and discover the truth behind not only the way she had been disgustingly mistreated at MI5, but also how a rumour of a possible biological terrorist on London. This begins a dangerous game of cat and mouse, lies and double crossing for the search for verifiable information on this possible threat.
As I said from the outset, I do not want to give anything away. It is a deep and well constructed thriller that has action and intrigue from the get go. It has that “edge of your seat” feel to it, with a pace that suits and is maintained throughout, a real page turner to see what will happen next. The characters in this book are a definite mixed bunch,some I really, really liked, then there are some real “slime balls” that I despised, others that I just down and out loathed, and then the odd surprise where I changed my mind about them. Is it wrong to like a baddy just a little bit ? The plot of the story is quite big for the size of the book, there are a good amount of twists, that keep you guessing and at no point did I feel confused while reading.
If you like espionage, crime, thriller, backstabbing action packed, creative and well written book then you will not go wrong with this. It ticked so many boxes for me, and it is my hope that other readers will feel the same way.
Crime writing author Oliver Tidy has had a life-long love affair with books. He dreams of one day writing something that he could find in a beautifully-jacketed hard-cover or paperback copy on a shelf in a book shop. He’d even be happy with something taking up space in the remainder bin, on a pavement, in the rain, outside The Works.
He found the time and opportunity to finally indulge his writing ambition after moving abroad to teach English as a foreign language to young learners eight years ago.
Impatient for success and an income that would enable him to stay at home all day in his pyjamas he discovered self-publishing. He gave it go. By and large readers have been kind to him. Very kind. Kind enough that two years ago he was able to give up the day job and write full-time. Mostly in his pyjamas.
Oliver Tidy has fourteen books in three series, a couple of stand-alone novels and a couple of short story collections. All available through Amazon (clickable link to Am Author Page). Among his books are The Romney and Marsh Files (British police procedurals set in Dover) and the Booker & Cash novels, a series of private detective tales set in the south of England and published by Bloodhound Books.
Oliver is back living on Romney Marsh in the UK. His home. He still wakes in the night from time to time shouting about seeing his books on a shelf in Waterstones.
