What will you do, when it's you or them?
This is the dilemma at the heart of The Defector - can Martin Cormac turn his back on his ruthless past as a dealer, a major city player, and do the right thing? Not when he's looking for answers in a succession of sleazy dives...
One night, Cormac gets caught trying to chat up the bar owner's girlfriend and soon needs rescuing. Unfortunately, his white knight is anything but - Janac's a big-time drug baron with a psychotic urge to test people to the limit, and if possible... over it.
And soon Cormac is running from more than his past, he's running from the most dangerous game he will ever play. When he runs into the arms of his ex-girlfriend - and his only real love - even the wide open spaces of the ocean may not be a big enough place to hide.
The Defector is a suspense thriller with a psychological twist, and a finale that ranks with the all-time classic sea adventures - read the opening chapters in the sample.

Let’s Book It.
'It was a pleasure to read a thriller in which some of the conflict was physical, some romantic, and some took place on the battlefield of competing philosophies.'
Chilling and intense, with plenty of mind-games and graphic situational descriptions, this book had me hooked very quickly and really was hard to put down!! This was my second Chisnell book, and I have enjoyed them both greatly.
*** highly recommended ***
Mark Chisnell has created a thoroughly nasty villain in the form of Janac, a psychopath who gets his kicks out of lethal mind games.
This story goes full throttle from beginning to end, in fact it almost ends too abruptly.
An excellent read, and amazingly still free! Good luck Mark, hope you gets a proper book contract soon!
The boat bit went on a bit BUT it was a very very good read.
