Sarah Black is back and—with or without her MI6 handlers—is hungry for revenge.
Scarred from her exploits in Tbilisi, she still has unfinished business in the murky world of global espionage. Namely the mastermind behind the foiled attack and the man who always seems to be one move ahead.
Tracking her foe to the civil war in Sierra Leone, where he is financing the ruthless rebel leader, Foday Sankoh, Sarah uncovers an even deadlier masterplan.
Cut off from MI6, Sarah decides to take matters into her own hands, but soon finds herself out of her depth, in a lawless land where everyone is either aggressor or victim.
But will bringing her foe to justice really be enough to satisfy her need for vengeance, or must she find and cut off the real head of the snake?
The Head of the Snake is the second novel in the Sarah Black series, and the sequel to The King’s Pawn, described by readers as “a great spy thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat”.
