About A P Bateman
A P Bateman is a bestselling action-thriller novelist who has reached the number one spots on Amazon UK, Canada and Australia. He has written fourteen novels - three in the Rob Stone series, nine in the Alex King series and his standalone Cornish crime thrillers Hell's Mouth and Unforgotten. He has also written numerous short stories and novellas and recently been commissioned to write a play for the BBC. It has often been said that there is a high degree of realism to his books, something aided by his love of adventure sports, shooting and his earlier work as a bodyguard and private investigator.
When a deniable mission to infiltrate Albanian and Russian organised crime is compromised, the Security Service distance themselves ahead of political fallout leaving their missing operatives off the grid with no clue to their status.
Alex King is re-evaluating his options after a rogue mission has cost him his career. He has sworn to leave the shadowy world he knows behind, but to do so would mean the fate of his closest friend will remain a mystery. He has questions, but the answers lie with an asset who had been supplying MI5 with information from within the inner circle of the Russian mafia. With the Russian mafia on one side and the Albanian brotherhood on the other, getting the asset out is just the beginning in what will be a dirty war fought against a ruthless enemy who have no limits and hold all the cards.
