Robert D. Smith set himself a challenge to combine his love of writing with his years of experience in uniform and as a specialist. He served in the military, as well as spending time as an officer in the Metropolitan Police, and carried out many lines of work including surveillance, intelligence work and engaging in joint operations with the Security Services. Vengeance is Mine! draws from Smithas experiences, following Detective Mark Kidder, a member of Alpha team a a secretive, armed police surveillance unit from aThe Depta. The team is recruited by MI5 to track down Jason Phillips, an ex-British Army soldier who, after being left wounded and traumatised in Bosnia, has become a mercenary soldier and a suspected terrorist, and is now based in London. Smith also explores the Balkan Wars of the 1990s as Alpha team discovers their targetas association with a legendary Bosnian Colonel Asa a hero-turned-mercenary with blood links in the UK a who has sworn to wreak vengeance on a renegade militia who ambushed and tortured his father. The perceived addition of academic and class snobbery ensures the relationship between MI5 and aThe Depta is not a smooth one, and the two organisations are pitted against each other. Pride, status, secrecy, inter-departmental and agency rivalries foster mistrust and jealousy in this thrilling story as dangerous secrets are revealed and Alpha team are forced to put their lives at risk.She couldna#39;t make out the driver completely in the dark interior, but he didna#39;t look weird or too threatening, and when he nodded she quickly calculated any potential risk, ... She glanced at him as he sat rigidly in the driving seat, gripping the wheel, and relaxed back into the leather upholstery. ... It ends in a culdesac past the car repairera#39;s place and ita#39;s nice and dark....very private, if you know what I mean.
