A mysterious passenger arrives alone on a flight from Turkey.
He has little luggage and a story that sounds plausible enough ... except for one extraordinary detail.
His passport has been issued by a country that doesn't exist.
Time to call in former Special Forces interrogator Tom Blake to investigate.
Blake, now working for a covert anti-terrorism government agency, has a unique skill to loosen tongues.
But even he's at a loss to solve this mystery.
The only clue to the man's true identity is an address in his wallet of dissident Russian academic, Alexei Polzin.
Polzin claims he knows nothing about him.
But when he's then targeted by a merciless team of assassins, Blake suspects he knows more than he's letting on.
Who or what is he trying to protect? And why do the Russians want him dead so badly?
The key is keeping Polzin alive long enough to persuade him to talk.
But with danger lurking around every corner, it might be an impossible mission.
Based on the urban legend 'The Man from Taured, The Viper's Strike is a gripping thriller that twists and turns from the first page until the last.
Easy to read, impossible to put down.
Perfect for fans of Lee Child, Vince Flynn, Daniel Silva, JB Turner, Stephen Leather, Andy McNab, Chris Ryan and Mark Dawson.

Simply Brilliant. Adrian Wills certainly know how to write an interesting and entertaining Action Thriller. This is the third book that I have read in this fabulous series, and I’ve really enjoyed each one of them. I like the fact that his stories aren’t predictable, and there is always something happening to capture my attention. Tom Blake isn’t too thrilled initially about getting pulled from one assignment that he hadn’t completed, to start another one. However he’s very intrigued by Neno Kasun, who has entered the UK on a fake passport. Trying to get the real reason Neno has come to London is proving a lot tougher than Tom is used to, and it’s not long until they find out that there are some pretty dangerous men involved. Then to top it off Tom’s boss is expecting him to work with another two MI5 agents. Tom would much rather work alone, however he is used to taking orders from Harry, and in this case it might even keep him alive. From start to finish this is an exceptional book, and I would certainly recommend it.
Well written series. Carefully plotted, well crafted characters. Would recommend this to all who are looking for a new favorite. Looking forward to more
I have read all three books in this series and they are excellent, they have some twist and turns to keep the reader interested I hope the author will write additional Tom Blake books. They can each be read as stand alone books, but after you read one you will probably want to read all three
