Publisher's Summary

When a group of missionaries get caught up in bloody African civil war, London is forced to act. For the men of 40 Commando, Royal Marines, it should be a quick in and out. A nice clean operation. But what awaits them will test them like never before. And, facing overwhelming odds, this time the skill and raw courage of these legendary fighting men may not be enough....

Another brilliant book

The attention to detail and the way that the author has written this book had me looking online to find out more about it. I knew it was fiction but it was just a really complete story, how could it not be true! Masterful

Probably the best Fictional Story I ever heard.

Loved it, truly fantastic book. Great story line with very meticulous build up in detail and excitement to the point where you can hardly turn it off. Very well narrated with good variation of voices. My only criticism, Military Voice Procedure is cool calm and collected and delivered smoothly and concisely not as robotic as in this story. Sorry, other than that 99 out of 100.

Fast Paced and Brilliant

The author Knows his subject. His knowledge of weaponry and tactics is impressive. Once started, I could not put this book down. I'll certainly read his other novels.

Another masterpiece by the author. A must listen for anybody who likes realistic, technical thrillers and tales of war. Great characterisation and believable from start to finish.

Brilliant read (listen)

Being ex military it was almost like l was there. The fear under fire and hoping that the officers know what they are doing.

Entertaining and solidly written.

Entertaining, old school military action story with brave Brit marines saving helpless nuns from a rogue contingent of UNITA forces who have crossed the boarder into the DRC at the tail-end of the 90 under the command of an evil, diamond-hungry psycho.

The author interweaves a sentimental love story in amongst all the violence and mayhem along with the graphic details of war. Not particularly politically correct these days, I imagine. But who cares?

The author seems to have done his homework.

The narrator did a smashing good job, too.
