The number of terrorist cells growing at an alarming rate. Controlling illegal immigration is impossible. Every week, thousands of people enter the country. Political pressure is great on the government to control its borders. The likelihood of an attack is at an all-time high. They require an answer. And quick.

He agrees to get rid of twenty of the most dangerous terrorists, but under unusual terms. It must be carried out without suspicion or evidence. an action that can be denied without evidence. There are no gaps. The deaths need to be staged to appear “accidental” or hidden.

Seven UK-based terrorist groups are the targets. Hakim Slimani, their well-known leader, is one of them. a radical Jihadist from all over the world whose goal is to uproot the Western way of life. at any price. As Slimani retaliates and Stuart’s team learns how they fund their operations, tensions rise. exploitation of minors, human trafficking, prostitution, porn, and drug use.

Before joining UK Military Intelligence as a contractor working on international mission-based projects, Tom Finn spent fifteen years in the Parachute Regiment. During his twelve-week detention in a North Korean military prison on suspicion of being a spy, he planned his first novel. His release was the result of a prisoner exchange that was made possible with the help of the US government. He is still serving, having recently completed a brief mission in Iraq and returned to his home in Brighton.

Five Million is a contemporary thriller that centers on the very real problem of illegal immigration in the UK and oozes tension and authenticity—gained from the author’s experiences in the Paras and as a current member of the UK military intelligence service.

Five Million is not only a five-star read but also demonstrates Tom Finn as an author who is on the rise due to the caliber of his plot, which includes uncovering plans that will result in the loss of thousands of lives, his confident writing style, and the detailed characterisation.
