Pre-order signed copies of The Patrios Network
Or pre-order a regular copy, either's good…
THE PATRIOS NETWORK ON SALE NEXT WEEK
The third Brigitte Sharp thriller, The Patrios Network, goes on sale next Thursday 29 Sep.
ONLINE HATE BECOMES REAL.
When a renegade British officer steals plans for a high-tech weapon that could plunge whole cities into darkness, elite MI6 hacker Brigitte Sharp is sent to get them back. But her mission goes badly wrong.
Meanwhile a ‘deepfake’ video of a senior US politician calling for race war in Europe sends a flood of Americans to join neofascist militias on the continent. The Russians nurse a ruthless grudge against a fugitive whistleblower. And in the wings, the Chinese flex their muscles. Everything seems connected… but how?
In her toughest challenge yet, Bridge ventures undercover into the heart of the mysterious Patrios network. Her task? To make sense of the growing chaos before darkness and bloodshed engulf Europe. If a powerful enemy doesn’t get her first...
“The Patrios Network opens with a bang and doesn't let up. It's contemporary, lightning-paced and in the very top tier of spy fiction. Highly recommended”
– MW Craven
“Johnston plunges cyber-spy Brigitte Sharp into another save-the-world scenario, this time tackling far right ideologues, nasty Russian villains, hi-tech superweaponry, and her own substantial demons. A deftly-plotted fix for thriller junkies”
– Vaseem Khan
“Forget about Lisbeth Salander. Here comes Brigitte Sharp”
– Johana Gustawsson
And now for the usual request:
If you’re planning to read The Patrios Network, please pre-order it!
All pre-orders count towards first-week sales, and those are extremely important.
If a book has high initial sales, online stores like Amazon will promote it through their algorithms; it’s more likely to land on various bestseller lists; and it receives more buzz and attention on social media.
…All of which makes the publisher happy, and increases the chance they’ll ask me to write more! 😉
Now, here’s an extra incentive for you: if you’d like a signed copy of The Patrios Network, all you have to do is place a pre-order via the publisher’s website before publication day. No special code or link, just order from:
And I’ll sign the copy sent out to you.
If you’d also like it personalised, whether for yourself or as a gift, email your name (to check against your order) and the dedication you want to this email address: <firstname.lastname@example.org>

BEHIND THE SCENES
Finally, you know how nowadays every TV show also has a companion show where people discuss it, and talk about how it was made?
Well, it’s not video and I won’t be calling in any celebrity fans 😉 But over the next week or so I’ll be writing several behind-the-scenes pieces about writing The Patrios Network, the challenges, research, and so on. Follow me on social media (see below) for links to each article as it goes live.
