Graham Potts

Stepan Volkov forfeited his future when he was paid to forget his past.

Forced to adapt, he ultimately became the world's most wanted killer... feared, vicious and brutal.

A tool of the Organizatsiya, a Russian crime syndicate that forged him into 'The Wolf', he's pursued by American spies and Australian agents, torn between his need to survive and his desire to be free.

When a shock encounter in Australia uncovers forgotten secrets and threatens uneasy allegiances, Volkov suddenly sees a choice... one he thought would never be his to make.

With a billion-dollar international oil deal threatening to shift the global balance of power, will Volkov return to Moscow to wage war for the Organizatsiya, or will he find the courage to escape with a vengeful thief whose life he destroyed?

ABC Weekend Bookworm

“…the product of the amazing imagination of a Brisbane writer who goes by the name of Graham Potts. Action and political intrigue to the fore: there are already comparisons with writers like Lee Child and Tom Clancy, and they’re already being made by really, really important people—and deservedly so in my opinion, because Potts is a fantastic thriller writer…he writes with a lovely combination of both ease and experience. No Free Man is his first novel, and it’s an excellent one. Great pace, great plot, great characters … I love geopolitical thrillers, and this one does it for me.”

The Courier Mail

"Short. Sharp. Chapters. If that is the way you like your spy thrillers you will welcome a new player in the field of literary secrets and lies... could be the next Tom Clancy. Or Robert Ludlum. Or Matthew Riley... a punchy thriller that keeps the readers guessing."

"Fast paced, heaps of action, a lot of lurking baddies, a flawed hero and comparisons with the work of Tom Clancy and Matthew Reilly are going to be coming in droves."

The AU Review

"Needless to say, Matthew Reilly fans should read on... Potts writes imagery like a film. You feel like you should be in a cinema for a Bond film, not tucked in bed reading a book."
