Hades Gate

Guy Bowman swore he was done with slaughter. He vowed to end fifteen years of deadly special-forces missions and grant his embattled soul some peace.

But now, high profile women are being snatched from the streets of London and New York as if vanishing into air. They’re slated for live-streamed torture and execution: a grotesque ‘fundraiser’ for a sinister, unstoppable cadre known as Hades Gate.

Bowman is drawn by MI6 into a terrifying operation to rescue the women, only to come face to face with a menace so advanced even British Intelligence couldn’t have foreseen it. To save himself, and the fate of an unsuspecting world, Bowman will have to confront his darkest secret. . . and enter the mouth of hell itself.

“What a debut… From the off, Hades Gate is the real deal, plunging its dogged but damaged protagonist – the brilliantly realized ex-para Guy Bowman – into a bizarre and unsettling underworld involving torture, the dark web, and quantum supercomputers. It also pulls off the trick of making the looming global threat feel plausible – even horribly inevitable.

Hades Gate isn’t just a cracking read in its own right, though – it’s also a promise of threats and adventures yet to come, and I can’t wait to see Guy Bowman take them on. If Bond has a natural heir, Bowman is it.”
