Meet Charlie Flowers
Charlie Flowers was born in Eastern Europe sometime in the late Sixties and arrived with his family in Britain in 1975. After training as a journalist in London he had a varied career as reporter, roadie, truck driver and record label boss. In the late Nineties he formed two cult bands, and is currently an adviser on terrorism and extremism to certain departments and think tanks. His day job is transport manager at a specialist logistics firm.

Meet Riz. Riz is a "Been There Done That", a veteran of the UK jihad scene. He joined al-Qaeda as a young man, got lifted by Counter-Terrorism Command and then made an offer he couldn't refuse. Now Riz works as a contractor for the shadowy Kinetic Training Solutions Ltd. Riz's new boss is Colonel Mahoney, the man who gives him carte blanche to continue on the street. Mahoney has asked Riz to investigate disturbing new leads coming from the data on the July 7th attacks. Now all Riz has to do is to uphold his connections to his previous groups and his wayward cousin, Bang-Bang Kirpachi, keep an ear to the ground for his employers... and stay alive... 

RIZ IS BACK! AND ON THE WARPATH... Rizwan Sabir returns, on a last-ditch, desperate mission to find his fiancée, dead or alive. Do the Americans have her body? Is she in Gitmo or a "Black Site"? And what is going on with her avatar in cyberspace? Who or what is the Fox Princess? Nothing will get in Riz's way, as to a background of escalating tension and a countdown to a massive right-wing demo, the action takes us from London to Afghanistan, Paris and across Britain. Bad things are going to happen and the only people who can stop them are Riz and his gang... 

Rizwan Sabir - ex al-Qaeda jihadi, now a fixer for a shadowy branch of the Ministry of Defence. 
Holly "Bang-Bang" Kirpachi - hard-bitten girl gang leader.
Their marriage will be the social event of the season!
But their wedding celebrations are interrupted by a series of murders in the East End of London. Someone is emulating the Ripper, and a beleaguered Home Office attaches Riz and Bang-Bang to the case. Whitechapel is simmering with tension. Can they catch the killer before it boils over? And are there other, darker forces at work? 

What are People Saying...?

'RIZ absolutely rocks! There are two kinds of thriller-writers: the ones who research it and the ones who live it. And every line of RIZ reeks with the raw authenticity of a writer who knows first-hand what the hell he's talking about, and isn't just making it up like the rest of us. Brilliant stuff. And you can quote me on all of that.'
TOM CAIN, bestselling author of the Sam Carver Series

'The most realistic account of undercover ops in the context of Islamist terrorism yet written.'
Mubin Shaikh, counter-terrorism consultant and former covert operative, Canadian Security Services
