 ‘Like Baldacci at his best.’ Steve Cavanagh ‘A pulsating action thriller’ Sunday Times 

The fourth adrenaline-fueled thriller from author of Zoe Ball Book Club and Richard &  Judy Book Club picks 

A deadly threat. A ghost from the past. And time is running out…  


Tony Kent 

Boxer. Barrister. Thriller Writer.  

 When traces of a radioactive material are found with a body in Key West, multiple federal agencies suddenly descend on the scene. This is not just an isolated murder – a domestic terrorist group is ready to bring the US government to its knees. 

The threat hits close to home for Agent Joe Dempsey when he discovers a personal connection to the group. With his new team member, former Secret Service agent Eden Grace, Dempsey joins the race to track down the bomb before it’s too late. But when their mission falls apart, he is forced to turn to the most unlikely of  allies: an old enemy he thought he had buried in his past. 

Now, with time running out, they must find a way to work together to stop a madman  from unleashing horrifying destruction across the country. 

Selected Praise for No Way to Die 

‘The fourth volume in the Dempsey and Devlin high octane action thriller series does not  disappoint, and provides the requisite number of fisticuffs, races against time and  knuckle-bruising encounters to fill an IMAX screen and more.’ Crime Time 

Another rip-roaring, pedal- to-the-metal action adventure from one of Britain’s fastest  rising thriller writers.‘ Peterborough Telegraph 

‘Definitely his best yet – a thrilling journey across America that channels Baldacci and  Crais, all leading up to the classic ticking clock climax. Terrific.’ 

Mason Cross, author of What She Saw Last Night 

‘What an absolute belter of a book. Dempsey reminds me of an amalgam of 007 and  OrphanX. A blistering, two-fisted thriller you won’t want to put down until you’re done.’ Neil Lancaster, author of Dead Man’s Grave 

‘A staggeringly enjoyable thriller… Astonishingly good – to the point of being utterly  unmissable.’ Rob Parker, author of The Watchman 

‘Taut, terse, thrilling and brutal…Brilliant stuff’ Neil Broadfoot, author of No Man’s Land A brilliant, gripping thrill ride.’ Cass Green, author of The Killer Inside  

‘[A] nail-biting epic thriller…Utterly unputdownable!’ Steph Broadribb, author of Deep  Dark Night 

a top-notch, edge of the seat thriller.’ Adam Hamdy, author of Red Wolves Selected praise for Power Play  

‘An intricate twisty minefield . . . Kent has outdone himself’ DAVID BALDACCI ‘Twist after twist … it builds to a brilliant finale’ DAILY MIRROR 

‘A high-octane conspiracy yarn’ THE TIMES 

‘A gripping conspiracy thriller’ IAN RANKIN 


My Review

I totally agree with the comparison to Baldacci.  He’s one of my favorite authors and this really reminded me of reading one of his books.  This is my first of the authors and again I’ve stepped into the middle of the series.  I have a knack for this and again, I enjoyed the book without having read the first three in the series.

I could easily see this as a movie with as action packed as it was.  The plot is well thought out and a little close to reality.  I want to make sure I don’t inadvertently mention something I shouldn’t, but there are twists, great characters and tension throughout the book.  I really couldn’t put it down and am working on finding the first books in the series.  I highly recommend for those that love action packed political thrillers.
