Description

Ex-marine Samuel Carver makes bad things happen to worse people. He is used to being in complete control. So when he finds himself caught in the middle of a riot in South London, he must fall back on his instincts and years' of training as the riot turns into a battleground. Someone planned this riot for political gain and now Carver - in the wrong place at the wrong time - looks like the perfect scapegoat. Wanted by the police for murder, if he is to clear his name he is going to have to find out who is really behind these events. The truth will shock even Carver - and find him pitted against a deadly enemy who knows all of Carver's secrets and in a fight that will bring him face to face with a killer without conscience. Set in a Britain in turmoil, with riots on the nation's streets, the euro in crisis, and a political system in disarray, Revenger is a classic Tom Cain thriller that once again rips its story from the headlines of tomorrow's newspapers.show more
