Publisher's Summary

Introducing Matt Rix...Australian commando. An explosive thriller from the heart of Afghanistan.

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.

    "Bram, well done."

    An amazing written version with an incredible audio version. If gripping the edge of my seat was a thing in the paperback, I was gripping the edge of my iPhone with the Audible version! Bloody brilliance.

    "Great Book"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Had been waiting to hear this one for a while and I am glad it was released as an audible edition and was not disappointed .

    Up to date on military hardware etc which has let some of the other authors in this genre down over recent years.

    The narrator was great glad he didn't over Aussie the voices of the characters and had the characters down pat.

    "Fantastic"

    Excellent story with well thought out characters. I thoroughly appreciated the additional points of view, as opposed as the often one sided western opinion that dominates military novels. Realistic action with a bloody good smattering of Aussie humour. What's not to love?

    "Great Story... worth the time."

    Great listen. Great perspective. Story from someone who has walked the walk and talked the talk.
    Narrator was easy to listen to and Brams story is easy to hook into.

    "Good first book."

    This is a good first book to what could become a good series. I enjoyed the listen there was some good action. This was the first time i have Hurd this narrator and i think he did a very good job and i could easily listen to him again.
