When the hunt for the female assassin who killed his sister proves futile, King returns to MI5 where he is propositioned by a secretive organisation headed by a familiar face. King takes on both the Russian intelligence services and organised crime to halt them bypassing sanctions and flooding the UK market with forged sovereigns cast from seized Nazi gold in a bid to sink Britain's economy.


Meanwhile in Marseilles, Caroline Darby is hunting the same assassin who killed her aunt and attacked her parents. With King fighting on another front, the team backs her up but they soon discover that the CIA have an interest in their quarry. The race is on to catch a killer before she finds help from an unexpected source.

King closes in on the forging operation in Estonia but doesn't know who to trust as the parameters of the operation change, and he realises that he should never have left Caroline in France, hoping he is not too late before the assassin closes in.

Timeline: 20 years ago.

A delegation of OPEC executives and intelligence operatives working deep undercover are taken hostage in Angola and moved across the border into the Congo. The region is recovering from 30 years of civil and tribal war, and international oil contracts are up for grabs, but only if the area can be deemed stable. The standoff must be ended quickly, but the newly appointed Angolan government will not grant Britain permission to deploy the SAS and has charged the woefully under-skilled defense force with rescuing the hostages.

Alex King has much to prove. His first mission to halt a coup by a splinter cell of the IRA and London criminals was deemed a failure, and his mentor Peter Stewart is having second thoughts about training him for the field. The brief is simple: Avoid an international incident, and bring home the hostages. The reality is altogether more deadly.

A small force of mercenaries led by Stewart and King must cross into the Congo and take on the Southside Boys - a gang of tribal rebels and boy soldiers, high on drugs and violence, who have made kidnapping, rape, and murder their way of life.

A very entertaining story!

What an excellent introduction to A.P. Bateman’s Alex king series – yep there are 12 that came before this one, but I haven’t read or listened to them yet! And yet is the operative word in this case.

The Congo Contract is not only action-packed, but also filled with a cast of flawed characters who are easy to identify with not to mention easy to like. The story line is filled with action, twists, and turns as well as plenty of intrigue and betrayal. Enough so that my head was spinning. Furthermore, the storyline felt like it was pulled from the headline of a newspaper from the not-so-distant past. This review is based on a very well narrated audiobook I received from the author.

When a deniable mission to infiltrate Albanian and Russian organized crime is compromised, the Security Service distance themselves ahead of political fallout, leaving their missing operatives off the grid with no clue to their status.

Alex King is re-evaluating his options after a rogue mission has cost him his career. He has sworn to leave the shadowy world he knows behind, but to do so would mean the fate of his closest friend will remain a mystery. He has questions, but the answers lie with an asset who had been supplying MI5 with information from within the inner circle of the Russian mafia. 

With the Russian mafia on one side and the Albanian brotherhood on the other, getting the asset out is just the beginning in what will be a dirty war fought against a ruthless enemy who have no limits and hold all the cards.

While Alex King is sent into Northern Iraq to tidy the loose ends of a botched mission, the archipelago of Indonesia is under communist threat from within its own military.


A consortium of worried businessmen call for desperate measures and seek the services of an assassin. But what if MI6 could be duped into taking care of their problems for them? With secret links to China the communist contingent threatens Britain's trade initiatives with the largest mineral producing country on the planet. 

In the dark world of intelligence it seems that everybody has their price.

A rip roaring exciting story, excellently read and superbly written - Joe Mills does a fabulous job of narration.


Great Action story brought alive by narrator

The book was a great action thriller brought alive by the narrator who brought a clear vision of it all close your eyes and you were there.


Wonderful narration

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, exciting and well written. The narrator was brilliant, in fact, the accents were so good I began to wonder if there could be more than one.



I was looking for something different and thought that I would give A P Bateman’s books a try and The Contract Man archived the desired effect I was looking for!!! Absolutely loved this novel and is one gripping, thrill ride espionage novel! The Narrator - Joe Mills is magnificent, his narrating voice and character impersonations are brilliant and sounds like a full cast of actors and forget that it’s a one man band production! The Contract Man is superb and now to start the rest of the Alex King series.

It had been a well-orchestrated defection when King put a Russian bio-weapons scientist on a British submarine under heavy gunfire. But he should have checked. Should have checked that the asset wasn’t contaminated. Tragically infected with the biological agent she was smuggling to the West, King has been burdened not only by her fate, but of the 118 men onboard the submarine when it disappeared.  

Aurora is the world’s foremost green energy pioneer and operate an R&D facility onboard a ring of former oil rigs anchored in the Barents Sea. Now a UNESCO green sanctuary, no military presence is permitted within an area the size of France. Aurora has discovered the sunken British submarine and a neutral consortium has been contracted to salvage the vessel and tow it to the Faroe Islands, where the Royal Navy will take possession under the eyes of the world’s press. 

With cutting-edge technology, weapons, and a terrible secret on board, King is sent to defend Britain’s interests, but soon discovers foreign agents have a more deadly agenda.

When a British billionaire is assassinated, MI5 agent Alex King is sent to investigate. With the killings carried out by a sniper of tremendous skill, King’s dark past makes him the best man for the task.

King soon discovers attempts to corrupt the investigation and investment links to a prominent cabinet member. Only when an attempt is made on his own life does King suspect there is more to the group’s declaration than first appeared. 

King faces an impossible task. With multi-billionaires giving so much of their wealth to charities, the terrorist group are regarded by many as heroes of a new world order. 

As King closes in, the fight becomes personal.

When his mission is shut down from political pressure, deniable MI5 operative Alex King seeks revenge for a team member and takes on the man responsible.


But in Washington DC, the political landscape changes so quickly that his enemy is now more powerful than anyone could have imagined.

Secret Service agent Rachel Beam has been given a sensitive case without the usual hierarchy protocols. As she digs deeper, what at first looks like a rogue MI5 agent committing a crime spree on US soil, seems more like someone creating a trail and sending a message. But for whom?

From the streets of Washington DC and the home of the Secret Service, to the wilds of Alaska and its remote gold mining country, King has to stay one step ahead of a tenacious agent and an assassin who will stop at nothing to put a stop to his pursuit for retribution.

Their symbol is an iron fist. Each finger represented by a country with an agenda. Five countries forming a new axis of evil that plots against the West and democracy. An organisation that nobody knew existed until luck intervened.

MI5 has a new director and its special operations wing has been disbanded. King and the team are scattered around the globe. British intelligence has been compromised, data breached and AI interfaced cyber-warfare a reality.


They seem untouchable but so were King and the team, and now they have their sights on a ruthless enemy and won't stop until the job is done.

I came into this series with this book but it didn't seem to matter I soon got engaged. This was an enjoyable listen and a lot of red herrings to keep the interest, It really worked. The book was very well narrated and kept my attention throughout. All in all really enjoyed it



Wonderfully engaging story

This is one 1 of a series, but I was able to pick it up and read it as a stand-alone book. There are subplots and characters that I assumed run through the series. In this book, the reader is given enough info and backstory of the characters that it’s not a problem to read it out of order.


Joe Mills’s narration and sound effects were perfect. He did a great job voicing the many characters, accents and foreign language accents unique to each character. I’m definitely going to read more in this series!

DI Grant is certainly no choir boy but his sense of justice makes you like him. Grant is staying at the summer home of his former, now deceased, boss. He is supposed to be recuperating from being injured in the line of duty but his boss had given him some cryptic instructions…which leads Grant on an investigation that could get him killed! The story is well written with lots of action. The narration is excellent and immerses you in the environment with sounds effects. Looking forward to more DI Grant!


Interesting opener

An easy listening type of book the plot and story are there but possibly a bit easy to suss out how it will pan out. Looking forward to the next DI Grant adventure and to see if there’s more intrigue with some added twists and turns.


Great listen to a new favourite series

Well I think I have found my new favourite detective ( whatever rank he is at this moment) the story itself was very well written with enough twists and turns even at the ending. Grant is no choir boy.

I liked the setting itself and Cornwall become a character in the story. Bringing in the impact of second homes on the economy was very interesting.

The narration worked really well and each character was unique. I even liked the sound effects which I normally dont like, but they were unobtrusive.

This has the required twists and turns the two plots nicely dovetailed. It was an addictive listen, the narration really worked and added to the story. I just had to complete listening to get to the end but then I was bereft when it was over. Loved the ending set it up right for the next book.


Great story, really well told

I loved this book. It surprised me and kept my attention all the way through. The story deals with difficult subjects in a careful way so as to tell the tale fully without being offensive or salacious. For me, what made the book stand out was the narration. The narrator did a great job on accents, voices, and all the drama you could want from one story. Superb storytelling all around.

2018 Award Winner - Best Parenting & Family - Pacific Book Review

Ever wondered what would happen if mom went back to work and dad stayed home with the baby?

The award-winning Daddy Day Care is an outrageously funny and honest account of what happens when one dad stays at home for six months to bring up his baby daughter.

It shows what it’s like being the only bloke in playgroup and how to bluff your way through mom chat. How it’s ok to mix up Humpty Dumpty with some Prince and David Bowie, and how your sidekick provides a cheap alternative to the gym!

Aimed at dads (and curious moms), Daddy Day Care offers a truly alternative look at the poo-soaked chaos of full-time childcare.

Best served with beer - or strong coffee (for the chronically sleep-deprived parent).

And to make matters worse former MI5 Agent Prav Shira's involvement in a 20-year-old cover-up only adds to that stress, and it's not because he's flawed, Shira has his vices - vices that could very well end his career.

Breaking Arliss is a tightly-woven thriller that keeps you guessing right up until the very end. And with unforgiving consequences, no one is safe.

" A baby is born and placed in his dead mother’s arms…
When the funeral shroud is cast over her, his father names his son Pall. It will soon become a name that strikes a shiver of fear into the hearts of those who hear it in combat.

A lone survivor on a battlefield many years later, Pall dazedly recovers from the wounds of war. Despite the dead cast about him, everything he looks upon is unfamiliar to him. Wandering away from this scene of carnage, he encounters John Savage, a giant of a man who puts Pall within the sight of Savage’s seven-foot, nocked longbow.

What ensues from this deadly encounter is an elusive journey for truth. Yet, while it is haunted by a ravening demon that is out to destroy Pall and John, the vision and prayers of a startlingly beautiful young woman protect them from afar."

"Candy Jones" was the stage name of Jessica Wilcox (b. 1921) who became famous as a model and "pinup girl" in the early 1940s. Her story seems too bizarre to be true. One of America's most famous models, brainwashed by the CIA? Yes, it is another example of truth being stranger than fiction. 

The story begins with Candy's wedding to Long John Nebel, New York's most successful radio talk-show host. During the wedding, and regularly thereafter, Candy's personality would seem to shift. She would suddenly change from her affable, self-effacing self to a brusque, aggressive "stranger". For the first few months of the marriage, these shifts were infrequent enough that Nebel didn't worry much about it, but as time went on, they got worse.

Nebel began trying to relax his wife by hypnotising her. Although Candy insisted that she couldn't be hypnotised, she slipped easily into a relaxed state and then into a healthy, deep sleep. But during the third session, with no suggestion from Nebel, Candy spontaneously regressed to a young age.


After that, Nebel began to record their sessions.

The result of these sessions was that Nebel discovered his wife had been brainwashed into have a second identity, "Arlene", whom a CIA doctor had used to carry messages all over the world. Eventually, Candy was tortured at CIA headquarters, so that her doctor could display her "successful" programming.

The Control of Candy Jones sent shockwaves through the corridors of power when it was first published in 1976. After reportedly being suppressed by the CIA, it became an instant classic and remains so today.

Forty years on from the Falklands Conflict, veteran Paul Cardin reflects on his own experiences while asking probing questions about what really went on before, during and after those 74 days of hostility.

As a 22-year-old radio operator in the Royal Navy, Paul was stationed on HMS Yarmouth when it was anchored in San Carlos Bay, known colloquially as Bomb Alley. During his time there, he saw ships being bombed and sunk and watched his friends and comrades being injured and killed.

Return to Bomb Alley 1982 is part memoir, part critical account of the way in which the Falklands Conflict was handled. Although often referred to as a war, neither Britain nor Argentina ever made a formal declaration but the days which followed the Argentinian invasion of the Falkland Islands saw more than 900 people lose their lives and many others left with lasting physical and mental injuries.

This book is a gripping listen for anyone who wants to know more about the Falklands Conflict. As well as telling his own story through diary extracts and a timeline, the author takes a thorough and journalistic approach to this period of history, asking tough questions about why and how certain decisions were made, what was really going on in the background. Just what was the role played by the British Government and Margaret Thatcher? What were their main motivations and how did they use the conflict to their advantage in the years which followed?

The Great Awakening!

A fantastic first hand account of the FW littered with nuanced details of which many I wasn't aware of. The FW like all wars past and present are contrived by our death cult slave-masters for financial gain, political gain and the ultimate and complete enslavement of humanity. All being played out right now with the NATO proxy war in Ukraine backed and financed by the same psychopaths that are always behind these atrocities.


This book gives me faith that humanity is finally waking up to the reality of the world we live in. I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind and a functioning brain to gain an understanding of why the FW, like all wars are completely unnecessary and only benefit a minuscule amount of wealthy psychopaths that infect our world. How many million men and women have died in unnecessary wars to further the agenda of the few?
