The Renegade Spy

A Deadly Assassin Is After The German Chancellor – But The Assassin Is In Even More Danger Than He Realises.

A page-turning debut novella in the tradition of Daniel Silva, Mark Dawson, and Robert Ludlum, The Renegade Spy is the story of a deadly and maverick female German Intelligence agent, tasked with saving the life of the German Chancellor from a ruthless assassin.

The German chancellor, Claudia Meyer, is riding a wave of popularity at home. But she also has her enemies, and one of them has hired an assassin – nicknamed “The Scorpion” – for twenty million Euros to kill her.

Little does the chancellor know that the Scorpion is relentless. He is ruthless, and he is extremely good at his job. The government has no clue what the Scorpion looks like and how he will strike. Not even her bodyguards are a guarantee of safety. All they know is that the Scorpion leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Captain Sophie Decker of German Intelligence rapidly becomes Meyer’s only chance of ultimate survival, along with her colleague, Lieutenant Wolfgang Schmitz.

Decker and Schmitz are given an order – stop the Scorpion by any means necessary – before the Scorpion gets to the chancellor.

Reviews

“In my capacity as an English professor, I want to tell you that YOUR WRITING IS BEAUTIFUL. Your writing is sophisticated both in terms of style and structure. Your hook immediately piqued my interest, and your style and voice are distinctive. Were you in one of my classes, I’d put your work in the top 5% based on what I read”.

“If Die Hard would have had a female lead, Decker would have been it”.

“Sophie Decker is my newest favourite heroine”.

“This book is the sort of book that is very difficult to put down once you start reading it”.
