A NANCY WU CRIME THRILLER with a hint of tech and espionage…

In Ukraine a modern-day human rights' crusader disappears. In London his mother seeks the only person who can save him before it is too late…

Lawyer and former Queen’s Counsel, Nancy Wu receives a desperate call from an old friend whose son vanished 6 months ago. What terrible facts of abuse did he unearth that made him a target for the oppressors? Has he gone in hiding or is his disappearance much more sinister?

On a crusade of her own, Nancy accepts an offer from the International Court of Justice to join its team of investigators. She’s prepared to challenge any authority in any country to find out the truth.

With new powers Nancy begins her crusade to find the missing activist. But she didn’t reckon with the interference of a group of Russian mercenaries that is spreading its exploitative influence and lethal retribution around the world.

Now Nancy must decide how far she’s prepared to go to save her friend’s son… a journey that may lead her behind enemy lines from where few ever return.

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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

Elisabeth Gaunt
