Frank Gardner: A new kind of storytelling.

This week bestselling author and BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner is in The Sunday Times and Nielsen Bookscan top ten with his debut novel, Crisis (Transworld, 2016).

An award -winning security correspondent for nearly twenty years, Frank's memoirs Blood and Sand, and Far Horizons, (Transworld 2006, 2010) won him critical acclaim as Sunday Times bestsellers in the non-fiction category. Now he has made a compelling transition to fiction.

Crisis features Luke Carlton, an ex-Special Forces soldier now working for MI6. Sent into the Colombian jungle to investigate the murder of a British intelligence officer, Luke finds himself caught up in the coils of a plot of terrifying international dimensions. Hunted down, captured, tortured and on the run from one of South America's most powerful and ruthless drugs cartels and its psychotic leader Luke is in a life-or-death race against time to prevent a disaster on an epic scale.

Frank's lifetime of security reporting and insider knowledge make for an authentic and thrilling read as the plethora of wonderful reviews show including ones from Sir Roger Moore, Sir John Sawers, GCMG Former Chief of MI6 and Frederick Forsyth. Called "a seriously compulsive page turner" by Peter Snow and "a book of exhilarating panache" by John Dugdale of the Sunday Times, Crisis is the start of a major new thriller franchise. Two more novels are already signed up.
