A terrorist attack. A killer on the loose. And a final, desperate mission . . .

Former SAS Captain, Tom Jackson, is a man with nothing to lose. A veteran of the most dangerous missions the Regiment could throw at him, his life was torn apart the day a terrorist attack killed his family. Now he grieves in obscurity, the world of warfare nothing but a distant memory.

However, people higher up the chain of command have other plans for Jackson. They are in a mess of their own making, and make him an offer he can’t refuse — an offer that will take him back into the brutal theatre of war. There’s a disaster waiting to happen, which only one person can help prevent, and that person is being held by the Taliban insurgency in the depths of a harsh Afghanistan winter.

As Tom reluctantly prepares for this final mission, he does so in the knowledge that it will stop a devastating terrorist attack — as well as satisfy an ulterior motive of his own. But as events begin to unfold, Tom suspects that someone is playing a game with him; that nobody can be trusted; and that in the murky world of international terrorism, things are seldom what they seem . . .

About the Author:

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984 and was a member for ten years. During the Gulf War, Chris was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq, of which three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. He is a best selling author and lectures in business motivation and security. He is currently working as a bodyguard in America.

Review:

"Nobody takes you to the action better than Ryan, because he's the real deal, and this muscle-and-bone thriller will have fans' blood pumping."
— Evening Telegraph
 
"The author has become an institution in the all-action genre. Full of his trademarkviolence and emotion. Great stuff." —Soldier Magazine
