Book Description
Eli Murray, a war-weary ex-captain in the SAS, is holidaying in Morocco with his wife and two children when a roadside car bomb explodes, killing his family and seriously injuring him. Seconds before the explosion he saw three of the terrorists involved and while recovering in hospital determines to seek revenge.

Recuperating in Casablanca, he is approached by two Israeli Secret Service officers. They ask him to join them in their hunt for the terrorists, who are bent on disrupting the Israeli and Palestinian peace conference, by leaving a trail of death and destruction across North Africa and the Middle East. Murray agrees and helped by a woman—an Israeli Army captain—he wages an unrelenting campaign of merciless vengeance against the terrorists.

Review of Leaving Mercy to Heaven:

Bryan Marlowe's latest novel Leaving Mercy to Heaven is a smoothly written and intriguing blow-'em-up, shoot-'em-down spy thriller. Beginning outside Rick's Cafe in Casablanca and moving quickly from one exotic city across North Africa and the Middle East, the excitement and tension builds and never abates. Terminating in the United Arab Emerite city of Dubai, Marlowe completely solves who, what, where, when and why. This well written tale of revenge is a book you cannot put down.

The building and repair work carried out by dangerously incompetent and unscrupulous builders, often known as “cowboys,” is widely reported in newspapers and investigations into their nefarious activities make popular and thought-provoking television documentaries. This publicity helps to warn the unwary of the misery, unjustifiable costs and even death that can result by employing unskilled building workers to carry out improvements and, often-unnecessary, repairs to their homes. The cowboy builder will always ask for “cash-up-front” before he starts to work. Later, he will ask for more cash, because he “underestimated the work and material needed to finish the job”. If the householder is unable or unwilling to part with more money, the cowboy will leave the property in such a state that it is an unsafe dwelling. This is the story of two men who take deadly retributive action against cowboy builders.

Readers of Leaving Mercy to Heaven, which introduced Eli (Mac) Murray, an embittered ex-SAS captain and Sarah Shahar, an Israeli Army captain, who joined forces to fight a fanatical terrorist group, in North Africa and the Middle East, might be interested to learn that they are bent on action again.. They are now married, but find they cannot settle down to a humdrum life and are ready and eager to answer a call to arms. This time they are engaged by a powerful British media magnate to take on the task of rescuing his son (a foreign correspondent) and his daughter-in-law, who have been arrested and imprisoned by the Syrian Secret Security Service. Their mission takes them, incognito, to turbulent Syria, where President Bashar al-Assad's tyrannical government is engaged in brutally subduing the dissident populace, who are demonstrating and dying in their attempt to overthrow him and replace his government. As you might expect, the action is very strong, with Mac and Sarah giving covert, but no holds barred, support to the rebels in exchange for their help in freeing the newspaperman and his wife.
