The new Nick Stone will be released 15 September and is named ‘Dead Centre’:

Indonesia, January 2005. Nick Stone is working undercover, to retrieve incriminating material from amongst the tsunami-ravaged chaos of a devastated landscape. His team is attacked and a man dies — but not before he makes an agonising promise that will return one day to haunt him…

Moscow, March 2011. Semi-retired but restless, Stone finds himself at the centre of an extraordinary encounter which turns his world upside down. An oligarch’s young son and heir has been snatched — with his mother — from aboard a luxury yacht in the Seychelles, and only one man has what it takes to track them down and bring them home.

The fuse is lit, and Stone is hurtled into his most complex and compelling mission yet — a mission that leads him from the Alpine enclaves of the super-rich to the savage underbelly of war-torn Somalia. And in a world where piracy, extortion and betrayal lurk in the twisted wreckage of imperial ambition, Stone’s principal objective turns remorselessly from liberation to revenge…
