The Failsafe Query
The Failsafe Query is a gripping thriller set in the contemporary world of modern British espionage.

Sean Richardson, a disgraced former intelligence agent, is tasked to lead a team to search for Alfie Chapman, an Intelligence officer on the cusp of exposing thousands of secrets to the media. This includes a long lost list of Russian moles embedded since the Cold War, one of whom remains a public favourite in the British parliamentary system.

The action moves with absorbing pace and intrigue across Central Asia and Europe as the puzzle begins to unfold through a deep hidden legacy.

Tense, fast paced, and insightful, The Failsafe Query twists and turns to a satisfyingly dramatic finale.

My Thoughts:

A fast paced spy thriller set in modern British espionage. A tale that reeks of intrigue, deceit and political treachery ,

Sean Richardson a disgraced intelligence is brought back from the dead, to investigate and trace files that can blow the world of espionage apart. That will reach the very summit of the British political hierarchy. To threaten democracy as we know it! But is Sean brought back because he is the best man for the job; or because he is expendable? A fast paced read’ a plausible storyline, that has you wondering could this ever be true? The action is fast paced, The writing is of top quality and the characters well rounded. There is also a healthy dose of humour to counteract the violence and fast paced action.

The author leans on his military background and this is obvious in his writing. In many ways his writing reminds me of Charles Cumming. I would look forward to reading another tale starring these characters. Well done Michael!
