An abusive childhood has forged Nathan Kirkland into the man he has become-a hard-working, strong-minded, self-made millionaire. Add to that his extraordinary good looks, and he appears to have it all. There's just one problem: to blunt the pain of his past, Nathan has walled himself into isolation, both emotional and physical. Social interactions unnerve this intentional loner, and Nathan is convinced that the only way to avoid hurt is to be the one doing the hurting. While many around him fall for his chameleon-like personalities, there are some who know the destruction of which Nathan is capable and are determined to bring it to light. Threatened, Nathan becomes merciless in his quest for revenge and frantic in his struggle to maintain the facade of his life. But when confronted with an unattainable woman, Nathan can no longer hide behind his pretense of perfection, and his long-sequestered vulnerability unfolds. His all-too-flawless world turns upside down, opening emotions Nathan thought he'd buried long ago and leading to chilling consequences. The Loner is a tightly woven tale of a man who is not what he seems to be and a fascinating probe into the psyche of a person who discovers the inevitable price of fleeing the past.

Is the truth worth dying for...? The Loner is a unique and gripping stand-alone novel from masterful novelist Quintin Jardine - a powerful story of one man who discovers shocking secrets. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid. Xavier (Xavi) Aislado is a gentle giant, half Spanish, half Scot, brought up in Edinburgh by his grandmother, Paloma Puig, a ferocious old lady whose grim brand of care sees him into his teens, until his father moves back to Spain, leaving him to grow up fast. His emergence into manhood is colourful, and eventful. After a short career as a professional footballer, he turns to journalism, and has a bloody introduction to the trade, as his first assignment ends in violent death. Inevitably, remorselessly, as his autobiography unfolds, Xavi's life and his love become entwined with his work, and he is immersed in tragedy, loss and betrayal, going halfway round the world in search of a truth that may destroy him. Quintin Jardine's evocation of Xavi's fated world is an unforgettable story of a man riding a one-way train to oblivion. Will he escape, before it hits the buffers, full-speed? What readers are saying about The Loner: 'Jardine is a great writer when it comes to keeping up the suspense and drip feeding the reader information and clues' 'Quintin Jardine's writing flows and keeps you hooked right to the end' 'This book shows just what Quintin Jardine is capable of'

The shadow of the Arzkek moved across the world in unstoppable waves, soaking the land in blood, worshipping at the demon haunted alters of pagan gods. But far to the north, on the boundaries of their land, these imperials tentatively control a realm of a giant mountain range; the Yorthani Mountains. The people were beaten and oppressed, but one by one the young men fled. There was nowhere for them to go, nowhere save deeper into the mountains, where giants and monsters dwelt, where the cold and the elements were as great a danger as the predators. There the strong survived; there the free became wild and the courageous predators. There they became loners. But when their people call out, when ancient prophesies become flesh, when a madman takes the throne, when enemies must become allies, then the loners must become brothers and raise a last standard for freedom's cause.
