Publisher's Summary

The first in a new action series from a television star, ex-SAS solider, body guard to the stars and best-selling nonfiction author.

The first in a brand-new series from SAS: Who Dares Wins star.

A country in turmoil. 

A rescue mission gone wrong. 

A hero unlike any other fighting to save a broken world. 

Matt 'Mace' Mason is deployed on a deniable SAS mission in war-torn Yemen, becoming embroiled in a hostage rescue that goes terribly wrong. 

Pulling at the strings of the local political scene is not only the local warlord who is destined to become Mace's nemesis, General Ruak Shahlai, but hardbitten American arms dealer Erica Atkins, who controls a whole international network to her advantage.

As well as his own team, Mace has to work, initially unwillingly, with female CIA Agent (and Islamic scholar) Redford. Together they will need to prevent an attack that would spark a regional war and create the largest environmental disaster the world has ever seen.

Don't miss the first in the new Mace Mason series from an author who has been there and done it all, Billy Billingham.

Stand aside 007 there’s a new dog on the block

Call to kill! Wow
Having seen billy in person and hearing his story live on stage you can literally see him in action as you listen to this extraordinary non stop action blood sweat and tears rollercoaster ride of a story.
Any terrorists dreaming of taking on Matt “mase”Mason should wake up and apologise or HIDE!

Not what it says on the tin

I am a big fan of Billy Billingham, & relished his autobiography The Hard Way.
However this book seems to have been written entirely by co-author Conor Woodman, with Billy's voice limited to 'military advisor'. It's an average thriller which just couldn't hold my attention. This book may appeal to a different audience. I suspect that like me Billy's fans will be disappointed.

Its different, but so good

I loved how the story was somewhat different to most 'fictional' war / Army stories. Its meaty and very full on. I loved the inclusion of the dominant female protagonists and the wide variety of characters.
For Mr Mark's first novel, its pretty awesome!
Well done mate and anyone reading this - buy it! Narration is good, storyline is good and great to listen to, when you want to get lost in a good story.

must listen

just finished the book. I really enjoyed the whole story. The authenticity of details, places and current events makes a big difference to the story, at least Billy has tons of own experience to draw on.
would definitely recommend it to others. "Good effort "
hope he's on with writing the next book?
always bit further 😉

This story is crying out for a Hollywood production!

Fantastic story, great characters, believable plot and the right mix of suspense with nail-biting action. If Hollywood doesn’t make a studio budget film of this there’s something very wrong! Would love to see this on the big screen

Incredible (read billys previous book before this)

Not usually a fan of fiction but there is a clear underlying reality to this book plus the sense that many of the story’s and situations are directly personal to the author which makes the book very interesting and draws the reader in
Over all very good book and would highly recommend

Action and Excitement all the way!

A great first novel! I’d been waiting a while for this and wasn’t disappointed. Written by someone who has been there, seen it and done it, which adds credibility to the characters and storyline. The stage is now set for the next instalment, which I hope is already on it’s way.

Gripping listen, great realistic story

I love stories from Andy Mcnab, Chris Ryan etc so thought I'd give this a go. Despite being a more accurate depiction of SAS missions, it does not take the enjoyment of action from it. in fact it makes the storyline feel more authentic and unpredictable. I was pleasantly surprised and would 100% recommend.

Excellent

This is the second book I have listened to by Billy, having listened to his book on himself this has some real time cross over with his time served. Excellent book and a must read.

Gritty

Felt like Billy was giving an insight into the murky world of deniable ops and the politics that goes on behind the scenes. Believable storyline, especially in light of recent events involving Iran. Overall an enjoyable listen.
