Keith Finlay is back and caught up in the world of espionage in Rod Brammer’s explosive second novel.  His mission is clear: he must meet a German Professor who will help him smuggle a secret bullet prototype out of Berliin in return for his freedom.

Finlay assumes it will be a simple mission until he is captured and taken to Russia for a brutal interrogation.  At the mercy of his interrogators and presumed dead by those at home, Finlay must face his toughest challenge yet...

Fast-moving and suspenseful throughout, Dismissed Dead will appeal to lovers of the work of John Le Carre, Ken Follett and those intrigued by the mysterious world of Cold War espionage.
