Overview

A deadly game of cat and mouse filled with high stakes tension, Winterlongis the must-read new thriller for fans ofJack Reacher, Alex Cross, and Jason Bourne.
It's been five years since Carter Blake parted ways with top-secret government operation Winterlong. They brokered a deal at the time: he'd keep quiet about what they were doing, and in return he'd be left alone.
But news that one of Blake's old allies, a man who agreed the same deal, is dead means only one thing: something has changed and Winterlong is coming for him.
Emma Faraday, newly appointed head of the secret unit, is determined to tie up loose ends. And Blake is a very loose end. He's been evading them for years, but finally they've picked up his trace. Blake may be the best there is at tracking down people who don't want to be found, but Winterlong taught him everything he knows. If there's anyone who can find him—and kill him—it's them.
It's time for Carter Blake to up his game.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/05/2016
British author Cross’s subpar third thriller starring shadowy Carter Blake (after 2016’s The Samaritan) adds nothing new to a familiar espionage fiction scenario—a covert operative on the run from his former employers. Blake worked for seven years for a secret group known as Winterlong, which originated in the Pentagon but now has its headquarters in midtown Manhattan. It was designed to be an “agile, kinetic response to emerging threats, focusing on bringing together the top tier of military and intelligence operators in a small, compartmentalized unit.” Now the agents of Winterlong are after Blake because he possesses “something that could, perhaps, take down the whole organization.” Blake learns he’s in the crosshairs while in California tracing the thief of valuable software that would enable its legitimate owner to “make Facebook look like a paper journal.” His cross-country race to stay alive features predictable collateral damage and narrow escapes. Series fans will hope for a return to form next time. Agent: Luigi Bonomi, LBA (U.K.). (Feb.)
Lee Child
“My kind of book.”
Bookgasm
“Cross’s skills at plot, locale, and character are impressive. Additionally Blake is as intriguing as he is competent, with a few skeletons in his closet to add to his credibility.”
Matt Hilton
“Mason Cross has created an enigmatic character in Carter Blake. The writing is taut, intelligent, oozes suspense. A highly impressive debut novel.”
