The Exphoria Code


In Antony's debut mainstream thriller novel, MI6 cyber-analyst Brigitte Sharp is deskbound and in therapy, traumatised after her first field op went badly wrong and caused the death of a fellow officer. But the murder of her best friend forces Bridge to go back undercover — and while rooting out a mole she uncovers a terrorist plot that threatens everything she has left to live for.

“A crackling fuse-wire of a book... Possibly the definitive espionage thriller of the early 21st century.”
Alan Moore

Atomic Blonde

Originally published as THE COLDEST CITY, this is the graphic novel that became the movie ATOMIC BLONDE, starring Charlize Theron as MI6 officer Lorraine Broughton on a mission to retrieve missing intel in Cold War Berlin — just as the Berlin Wall is about to come crashing down.

“Johnston masterfully draws the story to a height, tension and speed rising as the reader comes to see the whole of things... brilliantly and subtly done.”
The AV Club

The Fuse

Gripping, twist-filled murder mysteries — in space! THE FUSE follows old hand Klem Ristovych and young hotshot Ralph Dietrich, two overworked and underpaid Homicide detectives, working their shift on a futuristic space station... to solve the old-fashioned business of murder.

“Turns traditional expectations of the genre on their head... if you want more from your science fiction than space opera, The Fuse just might be what you've been looking for.”
