When a seasoned British agent is brutally murdered in the small West African nation of Malfajiri, a sinister plot to overthrow the government and systematically extort the mineral rich, but struggling nation gains rapid momentum.

Enter INTREPID: The Intelligence, Recovery, Protection & Infiltration Division of INTERPOL.

INTREPID agents are the unassailable strangers amongst us, serving the world and operating beyond the influence of the most powerful nations. Hand-picked from a global pool they are part-soldier, part-policeman, part-spy.

INTREPID’s new star agent, Alex Morgan, is sent out on his first solo mission to hunt down the source of soviet surplus weapons haemorrhaging into Africa and Asia.

Infiltrating a private military company, Morgan finds himself in the middle of a bloody Malfajirian coup, determined to rescue a group of terrified British expats including the beautiful, inscrutable Arena Halls. Morgan sets out to hunt down the man at the centre of it all, vicious renegade intelligence officer Victor Lundt.

Unravelling a complex web of deceit, linking the coup to the heart of the British diplomatic community, Morgan uncovers secret deals with brutal rebel leaders, deposed dictators and the shadowy financial czars who pull their strings. Their objective: astronomical wealth. The cost: the lives of thousands, left to the mercy of international politics and big business.

A heart-pounding, no-holds-barred chase, spanning the dark continent of Africa to the crystalline waters of Sydney, culminates in a fight to the end to stop vicious renegade intelligence officer Victor Lundt and uncover the ultimate power behind him.

If only Morgan can stay alive long enough to bring them all to justice.

Chris Allen

Chris Allen writes escapist action thrillers for realists, having seen and done it all.

Serving in three Commonwealth armies across two decades and four continents, one of the paratrooping elite, Chris saw the world from under a billowing parachute, often by night, entering foreign countries with the usual passport-stamping obligations eschewed.

Exiting military life with injuries, Chris transitioned into humanitarian aid work during the East Timorese emergency, served with three major law enforcement agencies in Australia, protected Sydney’s most iconic landmark in the wake of 9-11 and between 2008 & 2012 was the Sheriff of New South Wales, one of the oldest law enforcement appointments in the land.

The Sword of INTERPOL: Chris’s creative literary brainchild, INTREPID, is a culmination of his military and law enforcement insider experience. INTREPID is the Intelligence, Recovery, Protection and Infiltration Division: the razor-sharp, ultra-secret, black ops division of INTERPOL, established to operate across the world, regardless of borders, politics or race.
