A stunning, apocalyptic standalone sequel to The Stranger.

The terrorist Guy Fowle has escaped from prison.

Jude Lyon of MI-6 has been saved from a Syrian ambush by his lover – and enemy? – Julia Ermolaeva.

A mysterious Russian has been murdered in London and his thumb cut off.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has made an unfortunate social connection at a party, which he hopes he can keep secret.

And suddenly, the world is literally going up in flames.

Jude needs to start putting together the pieces of this jigsaw and quickly, because someone is putting into play a terrifying Russian plan to disable and destroy the UK. Once it has begun, it is designed to be impossible to stop.

Bad enough if that someone is the Russian government. Worse if it is the psychopathic genius Fowle, otherwise known as The Stranger.

Packed with stunning action, political intrigue, authentic tradecraft, emotion, shocks and nail-biting suspense, The Saboteur takes the spy thriller to new heights.

Spy wars -- for real -- by the man who knows
Tom Mangold
A superb writer, with great imagination, inventiveness and the ability to portray events with simplicity and urgency
Michael Jecks, author of Act of Vengeance
Conway has created, with Jude Lyon, a very modern hero, and one who will run for many more stories, I hope. Basically, if you are going to read any thriller this year, make it this one
Shots Magazine
There's a healthy crop of younger spy writers just now, and Simon Conway is among the pick of the bunch. His military background renders the action scenes bloodily and the novel's apocalyptic scenario all too plausibly . . . Fire in the hole
The Times
Violent, authentic and alarmingly believable story about modern spying
the Sun
Brilliantly written, this sequel manages to be even more exciting and nail-bitingly intense than the original
Irish Independent
The most brilliant spy thriller
Charlotte Philby, author of A Double Life
This'll keep readers up all night. It's a hugely entertaining read, featuring the nastiest, most charismatic villain of recent years, and barely pauses for breath throughout
Mick Herron, author of Slough House
The Saboteur takes his storytelling to a new level
Financial Times
A very fast-paced thriller that smoothly moves through one explosive set-up after another. Conway keeps his foot firmly on the accelerator as the body count mounts and the book rockets to the large scale climax
Deadly Pleasures magazine, Best of 2021
Gripping political thriller . . . Conway mixes bloody action scenes in Syria with a wider story about loyalty and even love
Financial Time, Best books of 2021: Thrillers
You just know when a book has been penned by a knowledgeable hand . . . this explosive thriller is alarmingly authentic
Scottish Field
