Publisher's Summary

The sixth book in the Danny Black series. 

The attack dog had its jaws clamped round the target's forearm and had sunk its teeth into his flesh. Danny could see the dark stain of blood through his night-vision goggles. The screaming had stopped. The target was staring blindly into the darkness, but he clearly knew there were armed men approaching him....

Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The Taliban are on the rise. 

A top-secret SAS kill team is assassinating high-value targets. It is bloody, violent, relentless work, suitable only for the Regiment's most skilled and ruthless head hunters. 

Like Danny Black. 

But when Danny joins the kill team, he learns that Taliban militants are not his only problem. There are elements within the British Army who want to bring the SAS to book. And there are elements within the SAS who have their crosshairs on Danny himself. 

Framed for a sickening war crime, Danny finds himself hunted in a brutal, dangerous terrain where his wits, training and strength may not be enough to survive. 

And in a world where his enemies are closer than he could have imagined, he must do whatever it takes to get to the truth. If he fails, it will mean the end not only of Danny Black but of the SAS itself.

Better with every book.

Classic Cat & Mouse right to the end. Can never get my head round the Americanisms for kit though.

Danny Black

I have bought every book in this series, fast moving entertaining, over the series the characters have developed and deepened.

A great listen in the car at the gym or just relaxing

I like Michael Fenner as a narrator and also look for his work to try new writers

Looking forward to the next one
