Description


“A bold, riveting thriller…fascinating characters and ground-level espionage and combat sure to please fans of Brad Thor, Tom Clancy, and Daniel Silva.”

Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Back Blast

Tom Locke is an elite warrior working for Apollo Outcomes, a very successful private contracting firm. He is tapped for a top-secret black op in Ukraine, and has one week to rescue an oligarch’s family and pull off a spectacular assault.

What Locke doesn’t know is that Brad Winters, his ambitious and enigmatic boss, is engaged in a high-stakes geopolitical chess game with influential powerbrokers in capitals around the world. One misstep could cost them everything. And that misstep may already have been committed by Locke’s former love, war correspondent Alie MacFarlane, who impulsively makes a move that risks both their lives.

Now Locke must move quickly to stay ahead of a looming betrayal that could lead to catastrophe…and tip the balance of power toward Putin’s Russia.

“[A] smart, exciting first novel and series launch…. Readers will look forward to seeing a lot more of Locke.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise For…


“[A] smart, exciting first novel and series launch…. Readers will look forward to seeing a lot more of Locke.”

Shadow War has pace like a catapult, sudden and fierce, and it will hit readers straight between the eyes.”

“Wars produce warriors. Some, like special operator-turned mercenary Tom Locke, find it a curious calling that pulls them into the darkest of nights and most dangerous of places. Shadow War brings all of it to life in fascinating detail.”

“For Black Ops and lots of military action, join Tom Locke for an exciting, wild ride.”

“Step aside, faux thriller writers and armchair warrior storytellers. Ex-mercenary Sean McFate has produced a first novel that’s assured, authentic, timely, gritty, and most of all real... I enjoyed the hell out of it.”

“With well-drawn and fascinating characters and ground level espionage and combat sure to please fans of Brad Thor, Tom Clancy, and Daniel Silva, Shadow War is simply one of the most entertaining and intriguing books I’ve read in quite some time.”

“Intelligent, funny, gritty, Ferrari-paced - at times even electric. Shadow War is in the running for best debut of 2016!”

“An American James Bond meets the twists and turns of “Homeland.”

“A gripping journey inside the world of modern warfare and espionage, and those who enjoy a good military thriller will be hoping that more Tom Locke adventures will follow quickly.”

“McFate knows the world of his first thriller intimately… The novel provides plenty of drama and a realistic view of political intrigue, and McFate really shines with lines that ring with authenticity. . . . A promising debut from an author who clearly knows the realities of the mercenary’s trade.”

“[A] terrific debut… Resonance and depth [are] certain to make Shadow War the book others… seek to replicate. A tour de force of form and function for a new geopolitical reality.”

“A full-tilt thriller… Full of tense moments, survival situations, gun fire, explosions, and even a romance (even if it is short lived)…. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment of the Tom Locke saga.”
