ISBN: 9780241349250

Combining the intelligence of Robert Harris and Frederick Forsyth, the raw inventiveness of I Am Pilgrim and the breathless pace of movies like Mission Impossible, Arkhangel sees James Brabazon stake his claim as rival to Lee Child, David Baldacci and Gregg Hurwitz as a master of the modern action thriller.

"The publisher is pitching this as similar to the books of Robert Harris, but this is a more straightforward action thriller"

The publisher is pitching this as similar to the books of Robert Harris, but this is a more straightforward action thriller, with the plot accurately described by one of the characters as “totally James Bond”. Accompanied by that character, a Punjabi computer prodigy, McLean dodges ricocheting bullets from the catacombs of Paris to Tel Aviv and finally a village deep in the Russian countryside for a showdown with his past
