Review quote

It's awesome -- Mark Billingham MBE, SAS: Who Dares Wins Tom mixes tense drama with fascinating insight into the lives of security service operators, to deliver a blistering read -- Jonny Lee Miller This debut from a former MI5 surveillance operator is one of the most exciting I have read in a long time . . . Every page rings with authenticity, the tension is superbly sustained, and the central character is all too believable: a man wary of the power to kill * Daily Mail * A non-stop, fast-paced thriller set in contemporary Britain and reeking of authenticity * Independent * You can't create authenticity without having lived it. Capture or Kill is spy fiction which is brutally immersive. The most protected author in history - we had to disguise his identity to appear on Sky News - writing one of the best books I've ever read. You won't be disappointed -- Kay Burley Capture or kill is certainly one of the most gripping books I've ever read. A thrilling, tough, vivid & rewarding experience from start to finish. Tom's writing is so honest, it opens the book to a whole new audience who may not think a "spy book" is their thing. I can't wait for the next in the series. -- Oliver Phelps Praise for Soldier Spy: Very well written, gives a startling amount of operational detail, the biggest shock of all - MI5 agreed to its publication * Sunday Times * Praise for Soldier Spy: A blistering, visceral insight into life on the front line against terror, revealed in remarkable detail * Daily Telegraph * Praise for Soldier Spy: Startling, absolutely fascinating. a footsoldier's account out on the street. A vivid picture of surveillance * Midweek, Radio 4 *
