Once back in Scotland, he finds out that there have been more visitors than usual to his house, and his home has been bugged by professionals. But Reeve is a professional too. Ex-SAS, he was half of a two-man unit with someone he came to fear, then to hate. It looks like his Nemesis is back. The horror has just begun.

A thoroughly exciting yarn - the exposition is detailed without being dull, the middle doesn't lag and the final third when event's return to the protagonist's native Scotland are reminiscent of Buchan's finest moments in The 39 Steps - but with added blood and guts. Splendid stuff.
