In The Renegade Spy, the Scorpion is a merciless and psychopathic assassin, hired to murder the German chancellor. But years before, he used to be a Foreign Legionnaire, a man of honour. What happened?

So when he walks in on an attempted sexual assault on an Iraqi civilian, he can’t look away. He breaks up the assault and the perpetrators, led by a British army Major, subsequently vow revenge. The Major calls in a “friendly-fire” airstrike, intended to both settle scores and to silence Schacht and his men permanently.
But against all the odds, Schacht and another soldier survive the horrific attack. They know immediately who is responsible and both vow to track down the attackers, one by one, and watch them die very slowly….
