A girl in need, a young boy lost, both victims of ruthless traffickers. Nancy makes a promise… to bring them home safe, no matter the cost.

Nancy launches into her new investigation with the same grit and shrewdness she’s shown in the past. Former lawyer and QC, now investigator with the International Criminal Court Nancy Wu faces off with a criminal enterprise that lures young girls away from home under the pretence of a better life.

On her way to New York, where she will challenge the United Nations in an effort to save children who have been abducted from their war-torn country, Nancy meets a young girl in need.

And Nancy can’t look the other way. She sets about to do what she does best, bring the fight right to the trafficker’s door.

With young lives at risk on both sides of the Atlantic, Nancy faces a deadly race against the clock.  But her enemies are unlike any she’s encountered before with connections going right to the top of government and intelligence agencies.

Now, Nancy must fight fire with fire if she is to hold her promise to save the innocents and come out of it alive…


Excellent – recommended

I thoroughly enjoyed this page turner which has an excellent mix of action and intrigue. This is a remarkable book which I cannot recommend too highly.

Reading from behind the sofa…

I’m a rubbish thriller reader because I worry so much about the characters. For a novel to raise my anxiety to a level where I can hardly continue reading, the plot, the twists and turns, and the characters have to all be believable. In SPY SHADOWS, Freddie P. Peters achieves this feat and adds a fast pace to the mix, which means you can hardly take a breath as you race across the pages. A great read, even if you have to hide behind the virtual sofa to enjoy the book.

Great read!

Spy Shadows is a cracking read. It can be read as a stand-alone or a follow on from the trilogy, Henry Crowne Paying the Price. Henry appears as a main character in the earlier books but here he is, off on his own, in a meticulously researched book about Middle East terrorism and war in Syria, with some of the story set in London, Henry’s old stomping ground. Henry is set on a personal mission, finding redemption for past misdeeds, whilst furthering the objectives of the British Intelligence Services. He’s a bad boy but oh, I want him to win! And all with the added frisson of a potential new love interest. It is Freddie P Peters best book yet, I had to keep reading to find out what happened in vividly described desert landscapes, war-torn ruined cities, luxury hotels and the London cityscape, all rich with accurate detail. What a journey! A great read for the holidays.

A thrilling read!

Read all three books in this series during lockdown!!! A great read and can’t wait for the author’s next book.


The best so far…

I loved the transition of Henry’s character from Banker to MI6 Agent and this was a book I just couldn’t put down. A great read for my week away in the sun and would thoroughly recommend.


You cannot put this down

I have read all of Freddie’s books so far – the characters are again coming to life. You will really come to root for Henry and his team in Iraq and the support team in London ! Even the minor characters are believable and well drawn and the twists in the plot keep coming
A real page turner – it will make you forget your surroundings.
