The Ares File is the second of the Michael Prentiss series by Andrew French

First Line  Fiona Mabbitt was usually a heavy sleeper and quite accustomed to being in the house on her own at night.  After all she had been an army officer’s wife all her married life and had long since accepted that she would sometimes have to spend long periods apart from her husband.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb

When the wife of the commanding officer of a secret intelligence unit is murdered at home during a burglary to steal a top secret file, a chain of events is set in motion to hide one man’s guilty secret. Michael Prentiss is once again unwillingly drawn into the dark world of murder and deceit. He must discover who has taken the file and recover it before becoming an assassin’s next target.

Introduce the main character – Secretive, trustworthy, lonely

Delightful Design


Audience appeal   Men and women who enjoy action adventure without too much gore and with a human touch.

Your favourite line/scene

Two minutes later the door opened and two familiar faces entered the interview room.  Chief Inspector Gallagher and Sergeant Lyle pulled out the chairs opposite and sat down.  Jordan forced a smile,   “Well if it’s not Simon and Garfunkel.  No, it’s Peters and Lee.”  Gallagher didn’t respond to Jordan’s sarcastic attempt at humour.

Find the book on Amazon UK or US
