THE LONDON CAGE features the second outing for ex-CIA IT technician, Connor Montrose, who first appeared in Names of the Dead.

Together they struggle to solve the conundrum of a long buried puzzle. Should the answer fall into the wrong hands then that country or organisation could bring down the rest of the world’s communications and defence systems. The action-packed race against this happening careers apace round London and nearly goes badly wrong in THE LONDON CAGE.

A former specialist in Disaster Recovery for oil companies and global banks, his career has taken him around Europe, especially Paris, where he lived for a number of years. History and modern global conspiracy lie at the heart of his work, and are the backdrop for the adventures of CIA technician Connor Montrose.
Review for The London Cage
“Ticks along with the precision of a fine Swiss watch. A worthy follow-up to Names Of The Dead with all the slick dialogue, action and intrigue we’ve come to expect from Leggatt. A cracking read.”
Neil Broadfoot, author of The Storm and Falling Fast
Reviews for Names of the Dead
An action-packed story with good locations . . . and lots of plot twists.
Alex Gray, author of The Bird That Did Not Sing, latest in the Detective Lorimer series.
Mark Leggatt is an exciting new voice, and in Names Of The Dead he delivers an intense, page-turning, fast-paced thriller that is blistering with action and frighteningly real. The story is told with slick, snappy dialog against a backdrop of international landscapes, and in CIA technician Connor Montrose, we have a tough, crusading hero to root for, in an entertaining blend of Bourne, Bond and Indiana Jones.
Ava McCarthy, author of The Harry Martinez series.
