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. In this first book of Rob’s new life, Rob travels across Slovenia, Italy and throughout Britain placing himself in deadly peril.
Rob Krane’s intervention to prevent Burak Demir’s certain agonising death changes their lives dramatically, forcing them into a tense and unlikely partnership.
Demir is a master criminal with an extensive international network of criminal and legitimate business operations. Secretly, however, he wants to break his own rule for his criminal network – ‘once in, forever in, unless dead’! But after years of trying, he is no closer to succeeding in his objective.
Krane, an unemployed operations manager, finds his holiday in Slovenia suddenly takes a deadly turn. Realising that to save the life of an innocent, young girl, he has little option other than to intervene in Demir’s affairs, as well as save their respective lives.
When contacted by Krane, the British authorities leap at the opportunity to bring Demir to justice – if only they can smuggle the three people back to Britain. MI5, the British domestic intelligence service, has concerns that Demir’s network assists international terrorism. However, they have no proof and are desperate to speak to him if they are to prevent and imminent, horrifying threat.
Demir’s foes have other ideas and won’t let him just slip away and easily disappear. Can the British help Krane and Demir extricate themselves from the clutches of Demir’s foes, or will those wanting Demir’s power and life succeed?
