Jonah Said is a man with nowhere left to run. Hunted, haunted, and bearing the horrific scars of a life spent on the frontline of some of the world's bloodiest battlefields, he's not what you'd call a model soldier. That's why the British Army has shipped him to the Zone?a lawless strip of desert between Iraq and Kuwait where everything is for sale and nothing is what it seems. From the moment he lands, Jonah is in over his head. Drawn into a ruthless world of corruption, he's about to learn that in the Zone, life is cheap?and the truth is deadly.
Simon Conway was born in California in 1967, educated in Britain and studied English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. He served in the British army with the Black Watch and the Queen's Own Highlanders.
After leaving the military he worked for The HALO Trust clearing land mines and unexploded ordnance in Cambodia, Kosovo, Abkhazia, Eritrea and Sri Lanka. As Director of Landmine Action he ran projects in Western Sahara and Guinea Bissau as well as successfully campaigning for an international treaty to ban cluster bombs.
Simon Conway lives in London with his wife the Channel Four News Correspondent Sarah Smith.
A LOYAL SPY, his third novel, won the 2010 CWA Steel Dagger Award for Best Thriller of the year.
