Intervention: The King Pin is the first book in the series by James Hanford. In a fast paced action thriller, Rob Krane is thrust into the conflicting worlds of organised crime and the British Intelligence Services, which is how he meets Laura Harding, MI5 agent extraordinaire. In this first book, they travel across Slovenia, Italy and throughout Britain placing themselves in deadly peril.
Alongside Rob, Laura sets out to rescue Burak Demir, a billionaire master criminal, from one of his own henchmen. Rob’s intervention is required when his Slovenian holiday takes a deadly twist, leading him to get involved in Burak’s affairs. Laura leaps at the opportunity to bring the long-wanted criminal to justice, but somehow has to get Burak, his daughter and Rob back to Britain. In doing so, she uncovers a terrorist plot with unsettling links to Burak’s network. However, as investigations proceed, ghosts from Laura’s past start appearing!
Rob Krane’s intervention to prevent Burak Demir’s certain agonising death changes their lives dramatically, forcing them into a tense and unlikely partnership that is managed by Laura Harding and MI5.
