Publisher's Summary

After single-handedly intervening in a deadly terrorist attack in Mali, SAS Warrant Officer Jamie 'Geordie' Carter is denounced as a lone wolf by jealous superiors.

Now a Regiment outcast, Carter is given a second chance with a deniable mission: locate SAS hero-gone-rogue David Vann.

Vann had been sent into Afghanistan to train local rebels to fight the Taliban. But he's since gone silent, and expected attacks on key targets have not happened.

Tracking Vann through Afghanistan and Tajikistan, Carter not only discovers the rogue soldier's involvement in a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the Middle East—but an imminent attack that will have deadly consequences the world over....

Solid Chris Ryan Thriller

Thoroughly enjoyed this book by Chris Ryan. The setting in a post-American Afghanistan was unique and painted a bleak picture of what the country has become. The lead character was well written and engaging to follow. Definitely one of Ryan’s more compelling characters of recent memory.
The only negative for me was the climactic sequence which felt completely out of place compared to the rest of the story; it basically went from a tight, human-centric thriller to an all out action movie. Without spoiling things, the ending and epilogue also fell a bit flat, with major plot points left unresolved - assuming it’ll lead into a sequel(?).
Narration was fantastic, great accents, tone and pacing.

Highly recommended

Cracking good story, by far Chris's best and I've read them all. Love the way the main protagonist sounds exactly like he does in real life, with a Geordie accent. Narrator top notch.
