Publisher's Summary

Part Jason Bourne and part James Bond, Alex Morgan is an agent of Interpol's Intelligence, Recovery, Protection and Infiltration Division - Intrepid. 

Policeman, soldier and spy, Morgan and his fellow operatives are the faceless strangers who serve the greater good - the means to justify the end. When an intelligence agent is brutally murdered and the president of a small African country is put in danger, Morgan is sent in on his first solo mission. His cover is to evacuate a group of aid workers, with the help of the beautiful but distant Arena Halls, before the country is swept by civil war. But his true mission is much darker. 

A spy has gone rogue - and there’s more at stake than the guy’s career in the SIS. A heart-pounding, no-holds-barred chase from the dark heart of Africa to the crystalline waters of Sydney culminates in a fight to the death to stop a vicious renegade intelligence officer and uncover the shadowy conspiracy behind him. Can Morgan stay alive long enough to save the girl, save himself and bring them all to justice?

Even if you think you’re not a fan of action...

I have to say, I’m not an action book reader, so I thought I’d try this out just for a change. I’m such a convert - it’s a really exciting, intelligent book. The narrator is fantastic and the story just carries you along. Action with brains (and a hero that is worthy of having just a little literary crush on). Totally recommend.

Doesn't get much better than this!

Chris, as I've said before and will say again, amazing book and a great production. Unreal story, with the attention to detail in the realism that a lot of people won't pick up on.
An easy listen/read for all, and a great for anyone (not only veterans of the action/spy/military genre). Alex Morgan deserves his spot with Bourne, Scarecrow any many others!
Love your work, and look forward to seeing what the future holds

If I could rate it 6 stars...I WOULD!

I usually listen to self-help books, however on holidays I wanted something a little more entertaining and to escape into another world. Defender ticked all the boxes. Suspense, entertaining and action. If you want a good holiday book, Defender won't disappoint. Exceptional!

Dear World, Meet Alex Morgan...

If there is one book to help satisfy one’s thirst for heart stopping action, adventure and just a touch of romance, Defender by Chris Allen ticks all of those boxes. The story’s protagonist, Alex Morgan, criss-crosses the globe to track down and bring criminals to justice. Narrated by Ric Herbert who helps bring each character to life and has them almost leaping out of the pages (or in this case, one’s iPhone, iPad etc).

5/5 stars - Highly Recommended.

Morgan / The Defender

Hi Chris
Just browsed your webpage - very impressive / Now I realise why the Australian & Sydney connection played a part in Defender/ I've gotten generous and given you heaps of Stars !!

Having a Audible Library of 900 / I can only find one of yours / Which is Defender/ Do you know when the rest of the Intrepid Series will go audible?

Cheers Rossco
P.S. Love the Morgan character!!
