In Honey Trap, a new thriller by Tony Brenna, foreign correspondent Mike Delano barely escapes with his life from jihadists in Iraq, only to plunge into the sleazy world of tabloid journalism – seduced by fame, money and power. He falls in love with Rachel, the married daughter of his employer, criminal media tycoon Lord Maxwell Rothenberg. When Lord Max discovers their affair – and that his daughter is pregnant – the two men become mortal enemies, a conflict that can end only when one of them is dead.
Honey Trap pulls back the curtain on the vicious media competition to strip bare the private lives of celebrities. Readers get to look behind the scenes at how ruthless reporters build up superstars, only to humiliate and destroy them. Lord Rothenberg is a media baron who provokes enemies from all sides. They become Delano’s enemies, too, when they threaten Rachel. Mike struggles to rescue the woman he loves from her tyrannical father, and survive attacks by assassins, terrorists, and drug cartels. He comes out on top professionally, but his success brings heartbreak.
