A brand new story from rising star of crime fiction, Sean Black.

Close protection operative Ryan Lock and his business partner, Ty Johnson, are in Los Angeles, tasked with protecting a young Hollywood actress from an abusive movie star boyfriend who refuses to accept that their relationship is over. But as Lock knows only too well, and Ty is about to learn, keeping someone safe from harm can be harder than it looks, and damage can come in unexpected forms.

"This series is ace." The Bookseller

"This is a writer, and a hero, to watch."  The Daily Mail

"Black's star just keeps on rising." Evening Telegraph

"Sean Black writes with the pace of Lee Child, and the heart of Harlan Coben."  Joseph Finder, New York Times Bestselling Author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets

To research the Ryan Lock series of thrillers, Sean Black has trained as a bodyguard with former members of the Royal Military Police’s specialist close protection unit, spent time inside America’s most dangerous maximum security prison, Pelican Bay Supermax in California, and undergone desert survival training in Arizona. A graduate of Columbia University in New York, he also holds a degree in Politics and Economics from Oxford University, England. The Ryan Lock books have been translated into Dutch, German and Russian, with a Spanish translation of the latest book in the series, The Devil's Bounty, scheduled for 2013, from the translator of The Kite Runner.
