The Gambit (Ben Lewis Thriller Book 2)

The Gambit Anger against the West is building amongst Russia’s elite. The Oligarchs are furious: they see sanctions and frozen bank accounts as an affront against them personally. London-based Ukrainian, Arkady Nemikov, is earning billions from deals denied to fellow Russians – in particular a new gas pipeline contract that will give Europe alternative supply sources other than Russia. Nemikov’s life-long Russian adversary, Viktor Plushenko, is outraged – he had coveted that deal for himself. Taking matters into his own hands, Plushenko decides to commission some private enterprise instead. He hires legendary killer, Oleg Panich, a former Russian agent keen to settle old scores. Former Royal Marine Commando, Ben Lewis, is still sorting his life out but when MI5 presents a short-term assignment, he agrees to babysit Nemikov and his family who has become a high profile target for the Russians.  As attempts are made to kill and kidnap Nemikov’s family in London, Lewis learns that his former enemy, Panich, is behind the attacks. Panich has recruited a small army, quietly supported by Moscow, to make the Nemikov killings appear as acts of terrorism against the West. Suddenly there is more at stake than just protecting the Nemikov family. Working hand in hand with Saul Zeltinger, a police Detective Inspector, time rapidly closes in as they race to find the kidnapped children and thwart a major terror threat about to be unleashed beneath London. The Gambit is a high-octane thriller set in both Cambridge and London, with an uncomfortable authenticity that makes this a hurtling page-turner, with twists and turns without ever missing a beat.

The Dossier (Ben Lewis Thriller Book 1)

Former Green Beret, Ben Lewis, manages to get to a journalist who has just been shot and killed in a London square. With her last breaths, she implores him to look after her cell phone and keep it safe. Unbeknownst to Lewis, the Russians and the Chinese are also tracking the journalist and the shooting starts a spiral of relentless attacks on Lewis as both parties try to retrieve the cell phone. Lewis follows the clue left by the cell phone, leading his pursuers across London and then to Geneva and the Swiss Alps. He has to keep one step ahead of the killers and not only has to contend with Saul Zeltinger, a police detective hellbent finding the person responsible for the shooting, but realises there is someone within his own side who is also desperate to get to the dossier. Set against illicit bartering of nuclear technology and weaponry in exchange for oil, this is a fast-paced thriller where its explosive action leaves you breathless and wondering what can possibly happen next. Yet, the narrative remains engaging and convincing right to the end.
