Description

When soldier Paul Curtis, recently returned from active duty in Afghanistan, is approached covertly by an old school friend's father and asked for assistance he falters only momentarily before agreeing to help. His old friend, Chris, is dating Lara, a beautiful British Asian woman whose brother, Pasha Durrani, is furious at their relationship. As Paul steps in to the breach it soon becomes clear that this is no low-level domestic disagreement. Durrani is heavily involved in organised crime, the roots of which lead back to a powerful terrorist network in Pakistan - and Lara has been offered to these people as a prize. Suddenly, Paul, Chris and Lara find themselves taking on a force more deadly and widespread than they could ever have imagined. As the police also desperately try to hunt down Durrani, the net draws ever tighter and Paul finds himself fighting on home soil in a deadly race to protect the lives of his friends. By turns gripping and terrifying, THE OPPOSITE OF MERCY is a sharp, insightful and utterly page-turning thriller that will leave you breathless.show more
