Cover Reveal: The Nice Guy and the Devil by Tom Trott

It’s almost a year since I stayed in with Tom Trott to chat all about the first book in his Cain thriller series, The Florentine in a post you’ll find here.

Today it’s my pleasure to reveal details of the second book in the series, The Nice Guy and the Devil which will be released on 5th May 2023 and is available for pre-order here.

Let me give you all the details:

The Nice Guy and the Devil

Nice, France — Retired CIA agent, Cain, is living a quiet life, trying to stay out of trouble.

But he can’t turn off his old instincts like a lightswitch.

When an unsuspecting American woman becomes the target of criminals, he can’t sit back and do nothing.

What starts as one good deed puts Cain in the sights of highly-trained mercenaries, brings him to the attention of INTERPOL, and puts him on a collision course with evil personified.

With no one he can trust, in a land of double-crosses, Cain must rely on his wits to survive.

Pre-order The Nice Guy and the Devil through the links here.

And if you’d like to catch up with the first book:

The Florentine

When Cain retired from the CIA, he moved to Florence, Italy to get away from his past.

He’s had nine years to enjoy fine wine, good food, and the Tuscan countryside.

But now his old boss has tracked him down, and he needs Cain to do one last job.

What starts as a simple trade entangles Cain in a web of secrets involving the mafia, an NSA whistleblower, and his own past.

With the Italian police and international assassins on his trail, he’ll have to survive the night to solve the mystery of who wants him dead.

Published on 6th May 2022, The Florentine is available for purchase here.
