A job to take out a Russian politician draws out Eve Poastri, a former MI6 operative, who is sent to find and kill the assassin responsible for the murder. The two ensue on a chase all across the world and the two become embroiled with corrupt governments and criminal organizations that leaves them both battered. An exciting story that will leave you wanting for more.

Jennings also wrote a popular memoir called Blood Knots: Of Fathers, Friendship and Fishing. The book sees Jennings tell of his time growing up in the 1960s near the lakes and rives of Sussex. He used library books to teach himself to fish, and the progress was slow, but he kept at it and got some help from a series of inspirational teachers. Jennings found a mentor in a young intelligence officer who taught him any things, but the end of that man’s journey was truly heartbreaking as he fell into the hands of the IRA.
