Hello, welcome to our spot on The Kompromat Kill blog tour.
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Michael Jenkins for providing a copy of the book to [K].
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
‘They were preparing for decades – now it’s time to take them down……’
A DIPLOMAT VANISHES
A BOMB DISPOSAL EXPERT GOES ROGUE
Hiding overseas with a price on his head, Sean Richardson is tasked to lead a deniable operation to hunt down and recruit an international model and spy. Moving across Asia Minor and Europe, Sean embarks on a dangerous journey tracking an Iranian spy ring who hold the keys to a set of consequences the British Intelligence Services would rather not entertain.
As Sean investigates deeper, he uncovers dark secrets from his past and a complex web of espionage spun from the hand of a global master spy. As he inches closer to the truth, the rules of the game change – and the nerve-wracking fate of many lives sits in his hands…….……..

A British Diplomat is kidnapped and a double murder in the centre of London, this is the prelude to something big it seems…
This is my first book by Michael Jenkins and whilst this is book 2 in the series I quickly caught up with what has happened in Sean’s life in the previous book.
I found this to be a cleverly written story with the suspense building after every chapter. The action started straight away and I was swept away with the pressure the characters were under to ensure their plans didn’t go awry, concluding in a thrilling ending. Published in 2019, this book incorporated the current affairs at the time which gave an unsettling possibility as to what could have happened at that time.
If you want a good political/espionage thriller this is the book for you
I cannot wait to get my hands on book 3 so I can see where Sean’s adventures will take him next!
I started climbing at 13, survived being lost in Snowdonia at 14, nearly drowned at 15, and then joined the Army at 16. Risk and adventure was built into my DNA and I feel very fortunate to have served the majority of my working career as an intelligence officer within Defence Intelligence, and as an explosive ordnance disposal officer and military surveyor within the Corps of Royal Engineers.
I was privileged to serve for twenty-eight years in the British Army as a soldier and officer, rising through the ranks to complete my service as a major. I served across the globe on numerous military operations as well as extensive travel and adventure on many major mountaineering and exploration expeditions that I led or was involved in.
I was awarded the Geographic Medal by the Royal Geographical Society for mountain exploration in 2003 and served on the screening committee of the Mount Everest Foundation charity for many years. It was humbling after so many years of service when I was awarded the MBE for services to counter-terrorism in 2007.
The Failsafe Query is my debut novel, with The Kompromat Kill, my second.
