Abbey by Ron Sewell.
What would you think when told your father is dead? Abbey Lane hoped he had burnt in hell. Abbey’s connection with a lunatic hacker finds her mixed up in a game of global terror and intrigue.
William Haliwell is a wily veteran of law enforcement. Over time, he has gained the influence and social network to get the job done. His superiors believe he is past his sell by date and want him retired. Yet he must get to the heart of the problem but he knows that for every action there is a reaction.
Abbey presents Haliwell with a vital clue. His direct interference identifies a terrorist base, but what happens next is in the hands of MI6.

If you love contemporary thrillers and dramas with British flair, this is definitely your next read. I was addicted from the very first page. Personally, as someone who was rejected by my biological father, main character Abbey Lane tugs at my heart strings. In the first page we learn that Abbey, a young Londoner, receives a letter from her legal guardian Mr. Gregory Peters. Abbey has a life altering decision to make quickly.
Author Ron Sewell is a skilled story teller, who weaves a spine-tingling drama filled with suspense, twists and turns, that involve cybercrime, so sophisticated, the world nuclear arsenals are in danger of being compromised.
Abbey, Tyler and Michael unwittingly get involved and become partners with Jacob. Jacob uses his personal computer to trade information on the dark-net and his digital portals knowledge to skim money from banks and other entities. Knowledge, power, and greed are formidable masters.
Commander Haliwell (veteran of law enforcement) works diligently to assess the threat levels and let those in power know the terrorist threats are not going to go away. Let me bring you into the story at Chapter Twenty-Three.
…His desk telephone rang; he lifted the handset and said, “Haliwell.”
…“Good morning, Commander. Kathy James.”
…His mind raced as he recognised her name. “Long time no speak. Have you something on that damned laptop?”
…“Yes and no. We found something you should know.”
…He was silent for a moment. “About time. With the lack of information, I shelved the case.”
…“We never stopped looking, Commander. From what we have recovered we know you need a trigger which activates the launch programme.”
…“Okay, what is the trigger?”
…“I don’t know. It could be anything. What I do know is without the trigger, we cannot stop it operating.”
…“We must be able to do something.”
…“You’d need to reconfigure every ICBM launch programme.”
…“I can’t see that happening when governments believe their systems are unhackable.”
…“I’ll send you my report and then it’s on your desk.”
…“Did you find anything else?”
…“We recovered bits and pieces, but nothing that makes any sense. I’ll keep my people on the case, but I doubt if we’ll ever retrieve all the pieces of the jigsaw. The originator did a great job of contaminating the hard drive.”
Will the British authorities figure out how to stop an impending nuclear attack?

Happily married to Sheila, we both got it right the second time.
At the age 14 with my passport and an almost empty rucksack I headed for the south of France. Here, I had a fabulous time working as a deckhand on luxury yachts.
If you choose to read my books and find you do not enjoy them please with my good wishes buy and read another author. Thank you for trying. The Collectors is a series of thrillers.
Message From A Retired Agent:
I love your thrillers Collectors’ series. The main protagonists are powerful characters with a sense of humour. The stories are page-turners. I hope these books continue to be successful.
