Product Information

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 Standard Chris Ryan is as hard as nails -- Mirror '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. These storylines are dependent on a bustle of verbs that lead in every instance to blood and explosions, desperate screams and increasing levels of difficulty: it is never long before we find things and people being zapped, fried, crunched, toasted and skewered, as the bad deeds of the world are comprehensively avenged' -- London Review of Books 'Relentless pace and gritty brutal realism... accurate descriptions of modern warfare... this is a book that could only have been there by someone who has been there, done that and got the T-shirt.' -- Soldier 'Chris Ryan has always been underrated as a novelist of ideas... a welter of treachery and mayhem.' -- Daily Telegraph 'A shockingly authentic tale to keep your adrenaline pumping as fast as the blood on the pages.' -- The Sun 'Bone-crunching action races to a denouement that Frederick Forsyth would be proud of. Ryan's Boy's Own bravado is tempered with sharp political insight and a neat line in treachery.' -- Daily Mail
