Jake Robinson has been living the good life – a safe if frustrating job and an illicit liaison with a beautiful woman – but all that is about to change as he is recalled to the Special Section of MI5.

Following their perilous escape from Bolivia, Sister Veronica has been abducted and Sister Theresa is in danger. Jake is committed to ensuring their safety, but now there are two contracts out on his life.

Wherein Lies Justice

There is no doubt that Corporal Munro and Sergeant Philips killed Major Carmichael to protect their fellow soldiers. Military policeman, Captain Jake Robinson, investigated the case and he’s all set to see that justice is served. But, as the court martial approaches, it is apparent that the evidence has been tampered with. Somebody doesn’t want the truth to get out.

Major Carmichael had powerful friends who are willing to do anything to uphold his reputation as a hero. He has The Family – a dominating force in the world of politics and the criminal world. As part of the prosecution, Jake finds himself in a difficult position; witnesses are suddenly unable to testify and the two soldiers will be hung out to dry unless he has the courage to defend them.
