About the book

The definitive collected edition: Sleeper and Sleeper: The Red Storm

Sleeper

Shortlisted for the Amazing Book Awards 2018

Will Starling is pulled from the sea with no memory of his past. In his jacket is a strange notebook with a bullet lodged inside: a bullet meant for him. As London prepares for the Blitz, Starling soon finds himself pursued by vicious agents and a ruthless killer known as the Pastor. All of them want the notebook and will do anything to get it. As Starling's memory starts to return, he realises he has skills that make him a match for any assassin. But there is something else. At his core is a deep-rooted rage that he cannot explain. Where is his family and why has no one reported him missing? Fighting for survival with the help of MI5 agent-in-training, Anna Wilder, Starling follows leads across London in a race against time to find the Stones of Fire before the next air raid makes a direct hit and destroys London for ever.

Sleeper: The Red Storm

Shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize 2019

1943. Sleeper spy Will Starling has been drafted in to the SOE, joining forces with the French Resistance in the fight against the Nazis; but Starling's memory is fractured and only occasional flashbacks reveal fragments of his past. Despite this, he has not forgotten his pledge to find and rescue his sister, Rose - if she is still alive. When his mission in France is compromised, Will suspects he's been betrayed.

Back in London he hears that VIPER are in league with the Axis powers and are developing a new and deadly weapon. As he and MI5 agent Anna Wilder set out to destroy it, their every move is anticipated by their enemies. Who is the mole in the British Secret Service? As they close in on VIPER's Swiss headquarters, it seems no one can be trusted. Are Starling and Anna able to prevent the unleashing of the Red Storm that will bring mass destruction on a scale even the Nazis haven't dreamt of?

While Starling tries to save the world, Rose has become the key to VIPER's future plans and is drugged to dull her kinetic powers. But Rose faces danger from an unexpected enemy and her time is running out...

About the Author

David Fennell

David Fennell was born in Belfast during the Troubles. Writing was his escape from Northern Ireland’s smothering political unrest.

As a boy, he read Sherlock Holmes, Ian Fleming and Tolkien; books he still loves today. He left school at 16 and trained as a chef at Rupert Stanley College. With youthful dreams of a new life, he left Belfast for London in 1985 with £50 in one pocket and a dog-eared copy of Stephen King’s The Stand in the other. He worked in bars and restaurants and later worked as a writer in the software industry.


David has played rugby for Brighton and was awarded the 2009 Player of the Year for the veteran’s team. He loves to cook and is learning to box. He lives in Brighton with his partner and their two dogs.
