'People sleep peacefully only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf . . .'


For twenty years Leo Black was in the SAS. Now he lectures on violence instead of committing it, putting his soldiering days behind him in pursuit of a respectful academic life.

But when a former comrade in arms is killed trying to prevent a scientist's abduction, Black is faced with an unexpected choice.

Be the upright citizen the university demands . . .


Or avenge the dead man to whom he owes his life.
