How far would you go to help your children?
That’s the dilemma retired bomb-disposal expert Steve Foley faces when his son, ‘Crazy’ Eddie, finds his life in danger…
When Eddie and his friend Road Kill accept work as bodyguards in Afghanistan, Steve knows that something doesn’t feel right. Who is Malik, the mysterious man making the job offer, and why is he so keen to employ two young, inexperienced bodyguards?
As the dream job turns into a nightmare, how far will Steve go to rescue his wayward son? How far will Malik go to avenge the death of his own child? And what will happen when two families at war finally come face to face?
A gritty thriller, A Father’s Duty takes us into a world of kidnapping and terrorism but, above all, it looks deep inside families to find out what holds them together and drives them apart. It’s a book you won’t forget.
