Face Value: A Wright & Tran Novel

Ian Andrew (Author)


Winner of the BookLife Prize for Fiction.

Kara Wright and Tien Tran MC - Private Investigators - Former Intelligence Operators - veterans of Afghanistan, Iraq and other places still classified - Retired British Military - Damaged Goods.

Tien, one of the first female soldiers to receive a Military Cross, paid for it with her left arm from below the elbow.
Kara came home from her theatres of war physically fine, but a lack of empathy and hard-wired reactions to events makes her dangerous. To herself as well as to others.

When siblings Zoe and Michael Sterling insist that their middle-aged parents have gone missing, Kara and Tien are sceptical and then quickly intrigued; the father, ex-intelligence analyst Chris Sterling, appears to be involved with an elusive Russian thug.

Regardless, their PI firm is broke and they could do with the cash, but Kara needs to keep looking over her shoulder, for as she and Tien close in on their quarry, a team of Cambridgeshire based detectives are closing in on theirs.

Face Value is the gripping first book in the Wright & Tran crime thriller series.

If you like electrifying action, breathless pacing, and three-dimensional characters, then you'll love this award-winning special ops detective novel.

About the Author

Ian Andrew grew up in the coastal town of Larne, Northern Ireland. He left to join the Royal Air Force at age 18 and worked initially as an aircraft technician before being commissioned as an Intelligence Officer. After serving for two decades he relocated, with his Australian wife, to the rural South West of Western Australia. Surrounded by a resident mob of kangaroos, he is currently working on the next novel in the Wright & Tran series of detective stories.


"With taut writing, bone-crushing action, and a pace that never relents, this was a difficult read to put down and a worthy winner." -- Mark Dawson (BookLife Prize Winner 2017)

"Face Value, very different in theme to his first book, once again proves Andrew to be a versatile and gifted writer who delivers books that hold readers from beginning to end. With very well-constructed plots, Andrew delivers adrenalin and excitement laced with imaginative, innovative technology with memorable characters who provide heart and substance to his work." (Elaine Fry - The West Australian)
