Publisher's Summary

The explosive fallout - with a stunning British twist - from a top CIA man's corruption and a US political leader's racism. The ruins of an iconic 450-year-old bridge. And a family destroyed by civil war. 

War crimes investigator Joe Johnson is drawn into a search for a dossier of secret documents that disappeared 20 years ago from the president's office in Sarajevo - but which have damaging links to the White House. 

Johnson finds himself hunting a Bosnian army officer who vanished, along with the dossier, after a series of horrific killings. The search takes him from Dubrovnik to New York City and London. 

Soon, ex-CIA man Johnson and his ex-MI6 colleague Jayne Robinson find themselves literally walking a minefield as they fend off powerful intelligence leaders with vested interests. 

The Old Bridge - the second book in the Joe Johnson series - is a taut thriller, set in some of Europe's most beautiful locations, and which explores the dark consequences of sectarian hatred and arms dealing on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Meet Joe Johnson today and see how he draws on all his resources to uncover the truth about war crimes committed two decades earlier.

new author for my reading list

I enjoyed the hero, storyline, and historical basis for the background and plot. And the lead is not perfect, but very tenacious.

Another great story by Andrew Turpin!

I really enjoyed this story by Andrew Turpin! Though I must admit that Joe Johnson seems to be fumbling his way through at times. After all he is an ex OSI/CIA Agent after all and he's clumsy and tends to over look some very obvious clues at times! That said I can still recommend this book as it is very interesting! Looking forward to the next in the series!

Not a thriller writer

The author may be an historian, and a journalist, a writer he is not,
Especially not a thriller writer. I’d say stick to what he knows.
He is probably a decent historian and journalist.
