The debut thriller from the publisher of Dan Brown, Lee Child and Tess Gerritsen. Limited time sale price.

"This series is ace. There are deservedly strong Lee Child comparisons as the author is also a Brit, his novels US-based, his character appealing, and his publisher the same." - Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller
"This is a writer, and a hero, to watch." - The Daily Mail
"Sean Black writes with the pace of Lee Child, and the heart of Harlan Coben." - Joseph Finder
"Like Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Lock is an ex-military policeman. Unlike Reacher, he has a job (as an elite bodyguard), a home, friends and a sense of humour. Lock's likeability contrasts with Reacher's pomposity and Black's style is supremely slick" - The Daily Telegraph

It may be Christmas Eve in New York, but for former Royal Military Policeman, Ryan Lock it's business as usual.
His task: to protect the CEO of the world's largest bio-technology company from a group of radical, and highly determined, activists.
But when a failed assassination attempt leaves the streets of midtown littered with bodies, and hours later the son of the company's chief research scientist is abducted from his Upper West Side prep school, Lock's hunt for the boy turns into an explosive game of cat and mouse.

"Funny, tough, and furiously paced, Lockdown explodes off the page" - Jesse Kellerman
"Readers, meet Ryan Lock—a tough-guy hero for a new age. Lockdown takes you on a mission through the animal rights movement, into the corporate corridors of power, and out through the dark alleys of Manhattan. Hold on tight—this one burns like a lit fuse." – Gregg Hurwitz, Internationally Bestselling Author of You're Next
"This is the future of thriller writing...the heir apparent to Lee Child." Ken Bruen, Internationally Bestselling Author of The Guards
