Outside the wire, Uruzghan Province, Afghanistan, 2010.... In the badlands of central Afghanistan, an Australian Special Forces platoon is fatally hit by a roadside bomb. A shadowy Taliban commander, codenamed 'Rapier', is identified as responsible for the deadly attack. Matt Rix, the ultra-tough commando who led the ambushed platoon, swears vengeance. Rix is one of Special Forces' most lethal operators. He'll neutralise Rapier - whatever it takes. But in Afghanistan's brutal war, not all things are as they seem.

A great story, greatly enhanced by accurate detail
Thoughly enjoyed this story. The accuracy and extensive knowledge of the Australian Military is what made me respect the author and allow the story to flow so well. Showing all sides of the conflict was an interesting dynamic. The main focus on officers was a bit tedious at times, a bit more focus on the JNCOs and Diggers would have been great. This story captivated me from start to finish and time well spend to listen to. Keep up the good work.
