Publisher's Summary

Ex-special forces soldier Alex Abbott escaped the Middle East under a cloud and now lives hand-to-mouth in Singapore. Scraping a living as a gun for hire and estranged from his family, Abbott is haunted by ghosts of the past, drinking to dull the pain. Life's tough, but there is one upside - at least he's not in Baghdad.

That's about to change.

When a job goes badly wrong, Abbott's in hot water. Next he learns that his military son, Nathan, is missing in Iraq. Knowing something is wrong, needing to find his son and desperate for redemption, Abbott has no choice but to go back.

Returning to Baghdad, Abbott renews old acquaintances and begins his search for Nathan. The body count rises as old wounds open and he struggles to confront his demons, self-medicating the only way he knows how. But when one of his old crew turns up dead in mysterious circumstances and the link with Nathan is clear, Abbott begins to suspect a trap.

But who is the hunter? And who is the hunted?

Hurry up & write the next book please!

Wow. I really .... REALLY enjoyed listening to this book. I was engaged right from the start ... and I found myself saying things like “OMG NO” and “Please nooooo” and was feeling such angst at Alex Abbot’s predicaments. I found I cared deeply for this character and wanted to help him & shake him in equal measure. The story is well written and you can ‘feel’ the action first hand and it created very vivid pictures for me too; gritty, grounded & real. I cannot imagine the mental strength required by anyone in the Special Forces (in any force); or the lasting effects. Thank you Ollie for a great story, for sharing & the short interview at the end. Please hurry up with the next book Ollie! Before I forget, I must give Colin Mace the narrator a big thank you too - he has a great voice for our rugged hero genre and really helps bring the book to life. Fingers crossed he can narrate the next books too.
