– Kirkus Reviews
“An exciting and fast-paced international spy intrigue.”
– Laurie Marsh

– Midwest Book Review
“Intricately detailed, incident packed, punchy…  A sustained narrative of menace and edge-of-the-seat tension, the conclusion to which is shocking and highly effective.”
– Martin Fletcher

“Another great page turner…  Vallier leads the reader along a vertiginous route with skill and suspense.”
– Michael Wilson
“The Falcon is no Saint, he doesn’t have The Saint’s morals; he’s not a Bond, he doesn’t work for MI6. But if they passed in the street they would know each other well enough to say hello…”

Decoy 17:

A suicide in Sussex.  A killing in London.  A murder in Brazil.
What is the key that connects these events?

Jim Peregrine (the Falcon) and MI6 learn the terrorist Malekka has a second plot against the West.
Codename: Stingray.  

But they have no details.  
They don’t know Malekka’s plan will start in 6 days.  
Or that it will cripple the West’s economies.  Or that it will kill two million people.

All they have is a plane ticket to Central America, 
and two words scrawled by a dying man: DECOY 17.

The Falcon takes on his evil nemesis in a desperate race against the clock, 
to try to unravel what Stingray is and destroy it.

The trouble is… This time Malekka knows he’s coming.
