Hide and Seek

By Eric Clark

Feigning death is almost a sure way of ensuring no one will look for you when you go missing. Or so Michael thinks…

Michael Kenyon is part of the newly legalised world of big time gambling, front man at a glittering casino. Ex-soldier, ex-policeman, accountant, and company director, Michael has been ‘bought’ by American mobsters, secretly intent on infiltrating Britain.

Married twice, Michael knows he is capable of failure, and so when his American bosses decide they need a scapegoat for their plan, Michael finds that he is the dispensable one. He can’t let this happen. He has to disappear in his own way: by feigning death. But he soon finds that even though people go missing everyday, they are usually found.

Using all his skills and past training, he sets in motion a complex scheme to vanish off the face of the earth. Which works – until decades later his journalist son, Stephen, comes looking for him. Can Michael Kenyon remain hidden, now Stephen’s inquiries have alerted others to his survival? And what of the other men, who have started to hunt him too…?

Eric Clark is an investigative journalist and author. His debut novel, Black Gambit was published in seventeen countries. Jack Higgins said it could only be likened to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and the Bookseller among others has classed him with le Carré and Deighton.
