Danny ‘Badger’ Baxter has a talent for surveillance. But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Republicans in muddy Ulster fields, or Islamic extremists on rain swept Yorkshire moors. MI6 have a plan to assassinate the Engineer – a brilliant maker of Improvised Explosive Devices, the roadside bombs which account for 80% of British casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. The spooks know he is planning to leave his home in Iran. They just need to find out when and where he is travelling. So Badger finds himself on the wrong side of the Iranian border, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying under a merciless sun in a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.
A DENIABLE DEATH is an epic novel of high courage and low cunning, of life and death in the moral maze of the post-9/11 world.
