Blog Tour: Rubicon by Ian Patrick
Today I am excited to join the tour for Ian Patrick's thriller Rubicon. It's the author's debut work in this genre and sounds like he started with a bang! I am intrigued by the premise of a slightly renegade police officer in the protagonist, Sam Batford, and as a fan of the TV series Line of Duty, I think this has a similar vibe of fast-paced, twisted story-telling. The book has already garnered some excellent reviews! I hope you'll check out Rubicon and if you decide to read it, enjoy!
Two cops, both on different sides of the law – both with the same gangland boss in their sights.
Sam Batford is an undercover officer with the Metropolitan Police who will stop at nothing to get his hands on fearsome crime-lord Vincenzo Guardino’s drug supply.
DCI Klara Winter runs a team on the National Crime Agency, she’s also chasing down Guardino, but unlike Sam Batford she’s determined to bring the gangster to justice and get his drugs off the streets.
Set in a time of austerity and police cuts where opportunities for corruption are rife, Rubicon is a tense, dark thriller that is definitely not for the faint hearted.
