: When a Special Branch investigation into an Al Qeada cell is disrupted by the arrival of a notorious Chechen fighter, Special Branch Detective Sergeant David Hurst must work with MI5 much sooner than expected. Hurst and his team have to discover how Al Qaeda and the Chechen are planning to attack a meeting in London between Russian diplomats and businessmen. Also supported by the FSB Russian intelligence service, Hurst races to defuse the terrorist attack before there can be widespread casualties, potentially bringing the UK to a halt. Blinded by misinformation, Hurst has to convince Special Branch and MI5 senior officers to change plans so disaster can be averted. Will he succeed? This thriller enters the mind of the terrorist, who looks at killing as A Dirty Game. After 27 years service as a police officer, most of which was spent as a detective in the UK's Special Branch counter-terrorism unit, David Lowe is currently a university lecturer at Liverpool's John Moores University, where he actively researches and teaches terrorism studies. His David Hurst stories are based on his own experiences as a detective, when he investigated and dealt with members of the Provisional IRA and Al Qaeda.
