It was one of those quiet, very English provincial towns filled with very respectable people with good manners and good morals. The last sort of place you’d expect murder or terrorism or perversion. And the last sort of place you’d expect to find Joe Hussy.
A man known in the armed forces as the Rat-Catcher – because he hunted down vermin and destroyed them ruthlessly.
It was three years since Joe Hussy had retired from front-line soldiering. Three years since he’d been High-Risk Hussy, Death Delivered Daily.
But after a seemingly innocent local hero dies in mysterious circumstances, Hussy is forced out of retirement. As the investigation gathers pace, he runs into some old friends: men who have neither forgiven or forgotten. And soon he is back on a White Knuckle ride – into the gates of hell itself.
White Knuckle is a slick, stylish thriller by one of the master writers of the genre. It will appeal to fans of Ian Fleming, Len Deighton, and Jack Higgins.
