This would be a good time to wish you all a Happy New Year, and I hope you didn't overdo it over the holiday period. I know I did!
So what have I been up to? Well, writing obviously, and my seventh book is coming along nicely. I decided to give Tom Gray a rest after all he's been through, not least in his latest adventure, GRAY SALVATION, which will be released on March 8th. In book 7 I will be focusing on Andrew Harvey, Veronica Ellis and the rest of the MI5 team my readers will be familiar with. It may not have Tom, Len and Sonny, but it's the normal fast-paced read with a mighty twist.
As for GRAY SALVATION, if you're thinking of pre-ordering, can I please ask that you wait until the release date, as this will help my rankings and help others to discover the series. If you are already on my mailing list, I'll send out a reminder on March 8th.
Speaking of which, everyone on my mailing list will be entered into an exclusive draw to win one of FIVE signed copies of GRAY SALVATION a month before it goes on sale. To join the list and have a chance of winning, just send an email to alanmac@ntlworld(dot)com with Next Book in the subject line.
Here's the cover image and the blurb:
When the body of an MI5 operative is found floating in the Thames, police frogmen find a significant clue nearby: Nikolai Sereyev, an MI5 informer and mid-level player in a Russian criminal organisation. Both men have been brutally murdered.
Andrew Harvey is tasked with finding his colleague’s killer, and quickly uncovers a plot to assassinate a visiting dignitary on British soil. No sooner has he scraped the surface of the case than the tables are turned and he becomes a pawn in a game of international brinkmanship that leads all the way to the Kremlin.
Harvey’s girlfriend, Sarah, also a secret service operative, is hot on his trail, but when she too becomes compromised, security chief Veronica Ellis knows there is only one man she can turn to. He’s a loose cannon, but she needs his help to rescue her agent and prevent a full-blown international incident.
The trouble is, Tom Gray has gone to ground. Finding him is just the beginning.
