The boy could help them bring down a deadly ISIS terror cell. They just have to find him before the other side does.
'A welcome return ... Firefly is both timely and terrific' Mick Herron
'An espionage master' Charles Cumming
'British espionage fiction is the best in the world, and Porter is part of the reason why' Lee Child
From the refugee camps of Greece to the mountains of Macedonia, a thirteen year old boy is making his way to Germany and safety. Codenamed 'Firefly', he holds vital intelligence: unparalleled insight into a vicious ISIS terror cell, and details of their plans. But the terrorists are hot on his trail, determined he won't live to pass on the information.
When MI6 become aware of Firefly and what he knows, the race is on to find him. Paul Samson, ex-MI6 agent and now private eye, finds himself recruited to the cause. Fluent in Arabic thanks to his Lebanese heritage, Samson's job is to find Firefly, win his trust and get him to safety.
A devastatingly timely thriller following the refugee trail from Syria to Europe, Firefly is a sophisticated, breathtaking race against time from the acclaimed and award-winning author of Brandenburg and The Dying Light.
Porter was a regular columnist for the Observer and now writes about European power and politics for The Hive website in the US. He has written five bestselling thrillers, including Brandenburg, which won the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, and Empire State and The Dying Light, which were both nominated for the award. He is frequently described as the heir to John le Carre, and Firefly is a triumphant return to fiction from an author at the top of his game.
