Scott Butler was born in Blenheim, New Zealand. His love of books and film inspired him to write. He’s a fan of Psychological Thrillers, the surf and the snow. He lives in Auckland with his wife Lou, daughters Zambezi and Cocolily, their guinea pigs, Bubbles and Bellatrix.



Secrets. Everyone has them. Nice ones that make your heart soar, little ones that make you blush, naughty ones that make you smile and dark ones you hope will remain hidden forever. One thing’s for certain – everyone wants their secrets kept out of the public eye. Especially the rich and famous.

Hadley Peters banks on the desire for ultimate privacy. With a global rock god, an actor on a meteoric trajectory, a mercurial artist and a stellar fashion designer on the books, his team of bodyguards is the best in the business. But when an elite client attempts suicide, and another is robbed at gunpoint, things begin to go horribly wrong.

As The Security’s clients’ personal lives are exposed, one by one, the team must work together to find out who is targeting them, and why. But as tensions rise, it becomes clear the assailant knows the bodyguards’ darkest secrets, too. As their world unravels, who and why is played out in a game that pits ambition against revenge. With devastating results.
