About the Author:

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years there he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris Ryan was the only member of an eight-man unit to escape from Iraq, where three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal. For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. He wrote about his experiences in the bestseller The One That Got Away, which was adapted for screen, and since then has written three other works of non-fiction, fourteen bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books. He lectures in business motivation and security, and is a consultant for a security organisation. You can find out more information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ChrisRyanBooks.

Review:

The books are masterpieces of social realism. Chris Ryan has lived the virtual life he writes about - and that makes him the right kind of war novelist for this generation. * London Review of Books * When a book says Chris Ryan on the front, there's little doubt as to what's in store... expect lots of Afghan action but also intelligent, political thrills. * Mail on Sunday * Chris Ryan is as hard as nails. * Mirror *
