Publisher's Summary

Islamic State is here, all around us. There is no defence. Only attack.

On the Syria/Iraq border, a British hostage is beheaded by IS terrorists. When the executioner breaks down, he is led into a nearby tent, where a masked figure is waiting for him. This mysterious person is treated with a mixture of respect and terror. They call him the Caliph.

In Nigeria the British Ambassador and his young aide are kidnapped. A four-person SAS team is deployed to find him. The team includes Danny Black and Caitlin Wallace - an expert on West Africa. In Nigeria the team find devastation, and when they discover prisoners infected with the plague they realise they have uncovered a combined Boko Harem/IS plot to unleash a bio-terrorist attack.

The team must stop the terrorists and identify the Caliph before the deadly disease is released much closer to home.

Chris Ryan does it again

Military fiction at its best by a man who live and breathed it. Thanks Chris as always.

Well Worth the Wait

'High-adrenaline' is an over-used phrase when it comes to special forces novels, but in this case it is more than justified. I was pacing around the house biting my finger nails as I listened to the climax of Hellfire. I don't want to spoil it for you, but suffice to say there is plenty of cool action, great locations, unexpected twists and enjoyable friction between characters - just as we've come to expect from the Danny Black series.

Oh Woe, what a mistake

No editor touched this book, repetitions, mistakes; arrive on a motorbike and leave in a car. The there is the breathy lip smacking narration. Awful, just awful. Needn't have been either. Such a mistake in such an amateurish way.

Ok

Decent enough story. Narrator is poor. Quite a good trilogy overall. Easy going when in the car.

Another great Chris Ryan story.

No one writes better thrillers than Chris Ryan. Brilliant from start to finish.
This has to be one of his best SAS books yet. 5 star.

Gripping!

I needed something to listen to whilst up late at night trying to persuade babies that they really wanted to be in their own beds. So good that afterwards I was kept awake as I followed the story long after the little one was back in bed! My only gripe is that it was over too soon.

Awful.

Would you try another book written by Chris Ryan or narrated by Michael Fenner?

I would have to be desperate.

What was most disappointing about Chris Ryan’s story?

Narration and the poor use of regional accents and the stereotypical portrayal of Black as an uncouth, uneducated military machine.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His use of regional and cultural accents not everyone from Birmingham speaks with a strong Brummie accent.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Improved my geographical knowledge of the Middle East.

Another gritty Ryan campaign<br /><br />

A great story with real drama and suspense. Written in a 21st century context that we can all unfortunately relate

More More More!!! I want More!

I will keep listening to these because they are amazing. the only time they are bad are when you are eating or when you wake up/go to sleep....they can get pretty graphic....
