Mark Tier’s ‘Trust Your Enemies’ is a fast-paced thriller with twists and turns that will enthrall readers
Trust Your Enemies: a Political Thriller is a story of power, corruption, love, betrayal, and moral redemption that will have readers on the edge of their seats, racing to the gripping conclusion.
Alison is the indispensable “right hand” of the next Prime Minister of Australia. Only a heartbeat away from achieving her lifelong goal, she is in danger of losing that dream when she becomes caught in a dangerously high-stakes web of power and intrigue, spun by Frank McKurn, a devious and Machiavellian politician.
Using every source she can think of in her quest to bring down McKurn, Alison realizes that time is running out for her as, one by one, they begin to disappear. An informed journalist ends up in a coma, an elusive hacker who holds incriminating evidence is forced into hiding, and a police officer she trusts is removed from a crucial investigation.
In the end, there is only one person left that she can turn to – her first love, Derek Olsson, a man who broke her heart and her trust years ago in one fell swoop.
The two have no one left but each other, and, unbeknownst to them, they must depend on one another to survive. As Olsson runs from a crime he claims he did not commit and a bounty is released on his head (preferably without his body attached), he and Alison must stay two steps ahead of those who pursue them – including a deadly assassin who is shadowing their every move.
Interwoven with deeper themes of the psychological motives behind power and corruption and the eternal human desire for freedom and individualism, Trust Your Enemies is a powerfully charged, emotional, and thrilling race to true freedom that will have lovers of the genre furiously turning pages to reach the fantastic and shocking conclusion.
Mark Tier began writing Trust Your Enemies more than 35 years ago, and his novel is the culmination of his first foray into fiction and political thrillers. In 1974 his first, non-fiction book, Understanding Inflation, became a bestseller in his native Australia. His articles have appeared in magazines everywhere from New York to Sydney, and still managed to find the time to write several science-fiction stories, including two Prometheus Award-winning anthologies. His retirement from the investment business enabled him to complete his lifelong work of fiction, Trust Your Enemies, which is now available in both paperback and Kindle e-book format.
