‘They were preparing for decades – now it’s time to take them down……’
Hiding overseas with a price on his head, Sean Richardson is tasked to lead a deniable
operation to hunt down and recruit an international model and spy. Moving across Asia
Minor and Europe, Sean embarks on a dangerous journey tracking an Iranian spy ring who
hold the keys to a set of consequences the British Intelligence Services would rather not
As Sean investigates deeper, he uncovers dark secrets from his past and a complex web of
espionage spun from the hand of a global master spy. As he inches closer to the truth, the
rules of the game change – and the nerve-wracking fate of many lives sits in his hands.

About the author
I started climbing at 13, survived being lost in Snowdonia at 14, nearly drowned at 15, and then joined the Army at 16. Risk and adventure was built into my DNA and I feel very fortunate to have served the majority of my working career as an intelligence officer within Defence Intelligence, and as an explosive ordnance disposal officer and military surveyor within the Corps of Royal Engineers.
I feel privileged to have served for twenty-eight years in the British Army as a soldier and officer, working in Defence Intelligence and Counter-Terrorist Bomb Disposal operations, rising through the ranks to complete my service as a major. I served across the globe on numerous military operations as well as extensive travel and adventure on many major mountaineering and exploration expeditions that I led or was involved in.
I was awarded the Geographic Medal by the Royal Geographical Society for mountain exploration and served on the screening committee of the Mount Everest Foundation charity for many years. It was humbling after so many years of service when I was awarded the MBE for services to counter-terrorism in 2007
The Failsafe Query is my debut novel, and I hope you enjoy the follow up novel, The Kompromat Kill, and my third in an ongoing series, The Moscow Whisper. Each can be read as standalone novels.
