The Protector is back. Mickey Bale must hunt down military-grade warheads in this gripping British thriller from Anthony Riches.


Former close protection officer Mickey Bale has a dangerous skillset. One that many men, good and bad, want to make use of. That's why a powerful oligarch wants to hire Mickey to protect him. And with his wife gone and his track record with the Met in tatters, Mickey doesn't have a choice.


But when a terrorist attack kills a police firearms team, MI5 suspect that Mickey's new client and the Russian GRU are involved. The bomb was a military-grade Sunburn missile warhead. And there are more warheads out there.


Blackmailed by MI5 into spying on the client he was hired to protect, Mickey is pushed to his limits by his new double-agent status. If he doesn't locate the other warheads, thousands of civilians will die – and time is running out...
