Deadly Game By Matt Johnson Cover Reveal! (Orenda Books)

The wait is over! I am incredibly honoured to be able to reveal the new cover for Deadly Game by Matt Johnson, the wonderful sequel to Matt Johnson’s bestselling debut novel, Wicked Game. Without further ado, here it is…


The blurb

Reeling from the attempts on his life and that of his family, Police
Inspector Robert Finlay returns to work to discover that any hope of a
peaceful existence has been dashed.
Assigned to investigate the Eastern European sex-slave industry just
as a key witness is murdered. Finlay, along with his new partner Nina
Brasov, finds himself facing a ruthless criminal gang, determined to
keep control of the traffic of people into the UK. On the home front,
Finlay’s efforts to protect his wife and child may have been in vain, as
an MI5 protection officer uncovers a covert secret service operation
that threatens them all…
Picking up where the bestselling Wicked Game left off, Deadly Game
sees Matt Johnson’s damaged hero fighting on two fronts. Aided by
new allies, he must not only protect his family but save a colleague
from an unseen enemy … and a shocking fate. (Courtesy of Orenda Books)

About the author…

Matt Johnson served as a soldier and Metropolitan Police officer for
twenty-five years. Blown off his feet at the London Baltic Exchange
bombing in 1993, and one of the first police officers on the scene of the
1982 Regent’s Park bombing, Matt was also at the Libyan People’s
Bureau shooting in 1984 where he escorted his mortally wounded friend
and colleague, Yvonne Fletcher, to hospital. Hidden wounds took their
toll. In 1999, Matt was discharged from the police with Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder. While undergoing treatment, he was encouraged by his
counsellor to write about his career and his experience of murders,
shootings and terrorism. One evening, Matt sat at his computer and
started to weave these notes into a work of fiction that he described as
having a tremendously cathartic effect on his own condition. His
bestselling thriller, Wicked Game, which was shortlisted for the CWA
John Creasey Dagger, was the result. Deadly Game once again draws on
Matt’s experiences and drips with the same raw authenticity of its
predecessor. (Courtesy of Orenda Books)
