The first in a brilliant new series from Adam Hamdy features series lead and ex-MI6 officer Scott Pearce. In this addictive and fast-paced thriller, Pearce is about to show us that in a world where there is no loyalty to the nation state, it's time to burn the espionage rulebook.

There is a war going on and the outcome will change the way we live forever. We thought that liberalism would always be a tenet that we lived by. We were wrong.

After decades of peace and prosperity, the forces of religious dogma and ideology have been gathering in the shadows, pulling strings to turn the world, our world, to their advantage. These forces are rising, outmanoeuvring governments, the military, and intelligence agencies on every continent. They've already put their man in the White House, and if someone doesn't stop them, they will drive us all to war.

There is only one man with the right skills and experience to neutralize a conspiracy that threatens to reshape the world: Scott Pearce.

Pearce is about to be given the resources he needs to do battle.

In a world where nothing is what it seems and all trust is gone, it's time to burn the espionage rulebook. Now watch Pearce light the fire.

Additional text

The best book I’ve read in a very long time. In this high stakes espionage thriller Scott Pearce is a formidable player who never gives up. Black 13 has TV/film adaptation written all over it.


A terrific thriller. The action never flags in Black 13. It. Never. Ever. Stops. Adam Hamdy is a worthy successor to Ludlum and Cussler
