With the arrival of my paperback proofs for The Alpha Protocol, I thought it was long past time to announce the release date! The Alpha Protocol will be out on 23 Feb! Just 2 weeks away now!

I’m really happy with how the final book has turned out. The cover art by Fred Gambino is truly breathtaking, and I find myself staring at it for way longer than I should. It definitely helps to fire up my imagination for book 2, and I’m really looking forward to collaborating with Fred again for the cover art on the next book.

Here’s the back cover copy for the book:

Naval Officer Jack Samson thought a posting to the frontier of human inhabited space was the death blow to his career. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

A routine inspection of a small merchant vessel leads to devastating loss and the discovery of strange, fascinating objects.

As astonishing discoveries unfold, a mysterious and hostile ship proves that Samson has a competitor in unlocking the secrets of an ancient alien civilisation, and that humanity might not be alone in the galaxy after all.

I’ll try to remember to put up an excerpt over the next few days. Until then, I hope you’re all keeping well!
