Description of this Book

Original Strikeback hero John Porter is here united with SAS antihero John Bald on a mission to Africa. They are sent to Sierra Leone to track down a British man, a former major in the regiment and advisor to the president, who has has gone missing - and there's a dead Russian in his flat. What seems at first to be a battle to control Sierra Leone's diamond mines will turn out to about a much greater evil - and with a trail that leads back to both Westminster and the Kremlin.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Chris Ryan : [Ryan] is reliably capable of depicting international crises and special forces operations in plausible and gripping detail. Sunday Times Chris Ryan has always been underrated as a novelist of ideas... a welter of treachery and mayhem. Daily Telegraph Ryan... became so expert as a modern thriller writer that it is easy to underestimate his talents...He chooses fiercely up-to-the-minute plots, and laces them with an exceptional eye for detail and insider knowledge...Fearsome and fast-moving...much more than a conventional thriller. Daily Mail
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

Former SAS corporal and the only man to escape death or capture during the Bravo Two Zero operation in the 1991 Gulf War, Chris Ryan turned to writing thrillers to tell the stories the Official Secrets Act stops him putting in his non-fiction. His novels have gone on to inspire the Sky One series Strike Back. Born near Newcastle in 1961, Chris Ryan 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. 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, over twenty bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books. Like playing Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Medal of Honour, Chris Ryan's writing will put you at the heart of the action.
