A top government research scientist and his assistant go missing.

One evening a ship in port weighs its anchor, revealing the body of a young seaman. His killers had tied him to a link in the anchor chain, and now they’re after his contacts, but why?

Although Jago is happy to work alone his life moves up a gear, to the level where he is most comfortable – one teeming with action and danger, where he has to outsmart and defeat his criminal adversaries.

What Readers are Saying:
“Meet the next James Bond. Jago is definitely someone I’d want on my side. I’d spend money and time to watch it in movie form.” (Cat Kelley, Goodreads)
“A very enjoyable book with believable characters and storyline. Loads of action from start to end. Reminded me a bit of Zeb Carter.  Hope to hear more from PAUL, I do like to read series books and get to know characters and this one looks very promising xx” (Christine, Amazon Customer)
“This book draws you in from the start and keeps you gripped until the end. Looking forward to see how the characters develop in the following books. Great quick read.” (Miss J, Amazon Customer)
“Great introduction to this series,fast-paced and full of action. I’m just about to start the second book, can’t wait!” (Fiona Enright, Amazon)
” Before reading an ARC of the 2nd Jack Jago book, I picked up this 1st book in the series to read first and I’m so glad I did! This was a quick read, yet the story was very satisfying. I’m not used to reading stories with a British military feel, so it took me a few chapters to feel like I understood the nuances the author intended. I found the main character, Jago, to be an alpha male with intense abilities. The story moves along quickly despite a very detailed description of events, characters and surroundings. The storyline about corruption in shipping regarding plastic pollution and corrupt business practices is unfortunately only too realistic.
I’m looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the Jack Jago Thriller series.” (Sara B, Amazon)
“Lots of good information about environmental issues that are real-world issues. Non-stop action with Jack (combination of Batman, Jack Reacher, and Ironman) saving the day.” (Kindle Customer)
“The Plastic Paradigm by Paul Stretton-Stephens is an action-packed thriller with an environmental theme. Jack Jago is a hero with morals and probably a “license to kill” in order to protect and defend. He comes to the aid of a young woman who is involved with an environmental group that is trying to protect the oceans from pollution from plastics. There are other organizations without a conscience that will kill to protect themselves while making a profit from illegal dumping.
“I found this book to be well written and full of action. It also uses up-to-date technology. I highly recommend this book. The plot and characters are well developed and there is a surprise element involved too.” (Kate Schoenherr, Amazon)
“Jago – they can run but they can’t hide!! This book had me on the edge of my seat from the rip. Full of what I feel are current activities and issues and relevant and intelligent characters. I’m definitely a Jago fan for life.” (Ann Sikes, Amazon)
  “Jack Jago is my new favorite spy! This book is nothing short of an excellent quick read that keeps your attention from beginning to end with twists, turns and action that just won’t let you set your Kindle down! An environmentally themed thriller, it delivers tons of surprises in a story that is completely well written and has well-developed characters despite the length of the book in both the areas of love to love and love to hate! Realistic, up-to-date, completely worth your time. Grab a drink, a comfortable seat in a secluded area where you won’t be disturbed, because you are going to want to finish this in one sitting! Get it now!” (J Johnson, Amazon)
