Overview

For Nick Torr, a senior officer in the Secret Intelligence Service's (SIS) Covert Directorate CO8, Operation Salvage was intended to be nothing more than a mundane collection from an SIS agent in Moscow. Betrayed, captured, beaten and tortured, Torr's nightmare has only just begun as Moscow attempts to protect its Oktober Projekt, raising the stakes of espionage to terrifying new heights.

Retracing the trail from Moscow, Torr becomes locked in a gritty secret world where blackmail and murder are the standard weapons in personal battles for survival. Drawn into an increasing destructive chain of events demanding high personal sacrifices, Torr's return to London offers no escape. Accused of being 'turned' by the Russians, Torr is forced to ruthlessly clear his name and discover which one of his senior colleagues betrayed him, which of them is Moscow's asset, which of them ordered the brutal execution of his wife. Only when Torr unmasks Moscow's agent in London will the spiral of killing finally end.

Meet the Author

R. J. Dillon has never lost sight of his roots, frequently returning for a heady dose of nostalgia to a small Lancashire cotton town where he was raised by his mother after his father died. He developed a love-hate relationship with education, emerging relatively unscathed with a first class honours degree, masters and Ph.D.

He has held a varied assortment of jobs reflecting his commitment and hard work; he has a charming flair for new challenges, and a high disregard for needless authority. He's served in the Royal Navy for a short period, toiled as a labourer, overhauled and installed machinery as a technician, loaded garments into trailers, experienced advertising, worked freelance, taught and taught some more.

His first, tentative steps at writing came when he was five - he still has the 'action' story with crayoned illustrations to prove it. Professionally, he's written reports, edited reports, compiled journals, produced copy, poetry, an academic book and most recently he's concentrated on fiction.

He doesn't suffer fools or the instant-gratification culture in any form. He mourns the loss of individual and collective responsibility. He turned his back on alcohol several years ago. He doesn't go out of his way looking for trouble, but it has a habit of seeking him out; he's had shoes thrown at him, fair and devious punches, glasses of wine and holy water - not all by the same person.

When he's not writing, researching or travelling, Dillon has taken to the hills on and off challenging trails; now he concentrates on coastal walks. He is an accomplished photographer, enjoys reading biographies and non-fiction.

The Oktober Projekt has fantastically well written characters, dialogue and narrative. Incredibly tense with twists and turns throughout. It kept me guessing until the final chapters. Remarkably it feels fresh and original in a genre that can become at times repetitive and well worn. Unlike most current spy stories it feels relevant and current, not to mention very much grounded in reality (no outlandish plot lines and OTT characters here!), where you actually believe these events can or did happen. A must read for anyone who likes thrillers and spy stories.
