By Jason Dean

  • E-Book

James Bishop returns in an exclusive e-short from Headline's very own Lee Child, must-buy thriller author Jason Dean.

An exclusive James Bishop digital short story from Jason Dean, author of THE WRONG MAN and BACKTRACK. Do you like Reacher? You'll love Bishop.

She has already escaped her captors once. Surely twice would be impossible.

Kidnapped and left for dead, Sylvia Caplan knows she will have one chance to get her life back. Having fled and found her way back to civilisation, Sylvia stumbles into a dingy bar. Wearing borrowed shoes and stolen clothes, she's not the usual kind of customer and its not long before two menacing figures catch up with her.

Unnoticed, former Marine, James Bishop, witnesses the woman's struggle, stepping in before he knows what he's done. Now Sylvia is on the run again but this time she is not alone. Can Bishop help her keep one step ahead or will he come to regret risking his life for a stranger?

Includes extracts from all three James Bishop novels including an exclusive from the upcoming THE HUNTER'S OATH, out in June.
