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 thirteen novels - three in the Rob Stone series, nine in the Alex King series and his standalone Cornish crime thriller Hell's Mouth. 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 his mission is shut down from political pressure, deniable MI5 operative Alex King seeks revenge for a team member and takes on the man responsible. But in Washington DC, the political landscape changes so quickly that his enemy is now more powerful than anyone could have imagined.
Secret Service agent Rachel Beam has been given a sensitive case without the usual hierarchy protocols. As she digs deeper, what at first looks like a rogue MI5 agent committing a crime spree on US soil, seems more like someone creating a trail and sending a message. But for whom?
From the streets of Washington DC and the home of the Secret Service, to the wilds of Alaska and its remote gold mining country, King has to stay one step ahead of a tenacious agent and an assassin who will stop at nothing to put a stop to his pursuit for retribution.
