Cover for 'The Defector'

By Mark Chisnell


What will you do, when it’s you or them?

This is the dilemma at the heart of The Defector – can Martin Cormac turn his back on his ruthless past as a currency trader, a big city player, and do the right thing? Not when he’s looking for answers in a succession of sleazy dives…

One night, Cormac gets caught trying to chat up the bar owner’s girlfriend and soon needs rescuing. Unfortunately, his white knight is anything but – Janac’s a drug baron with a psychotic urge to test people to the limit, and if possible… over it.
