About the Author

Tony Kent is a 41-year-old criminal barrister who draws on his legal experience to bring a striking authenticity and accuracy to his thrillers. Long ranked within his profession as a 'leader in his field', for twenty years Tony has prosecuted and defended the most serious criminal allegations, specialising in terrorism, corruption, murder, kidnap, extortion and fraud. His case history is littered with nationally reported trials and has included close contact with GCHQ, the Security Service and the Ministry of Defence. He has also defended in matters with an international element, involving agencies such as the FBI. Out of court, Tony has lectured on international criminal law, bribery and corruption, and has been engaged to teach trial advocacy to Public Defenders and State Prosecutors in the United States. Prior to the start of his legal career Tony represented England as a heavyweight boxer and won a host of national amateur titles. He lives just outside of London with his wife, young son and dog.
