Publisher's Summary

A bullet in the right place can change the world.... 

Rebecca da Silva, former crack sniper in the British Special Forces stationed in Afghanistan, is languishing in a dead-end job. 

Stephen Holm, an intelligence analyst, gambles his position upon the capture of the ruthless Taher, a terrorist so elusive that MI5 are not convinced he exists. 

But then a deadly terror attack in Tunisia changes everything, setting them on two interconnected paths, one born of revenge, the other of obsession. How do you stop a terrorist you can’t find? Their discoveries, and fight for survival, will go to the very heart of power...to the White House.

Good story.Terrible narration.

This was a most frustrating listen. The story took forever to get going, but things started to move eventually and it turned out to be well written and a riveting story with interesting characters. BUT, a good book was ruined by some of the worst narration I've ever encountered and it was a real struggle to get to the end. Michael Wahr read the book in a dreamy voice, totally unsuited to the subject matter and any colour he attempted to add to the reading, completely failed due to his emphasising the wrong words time and time again. It was also very annoying and incredibly that there was no pause at all when changing between events and activities of the two different pairs of main characters.
If a second audio book is released in this series, I would only purchase it if it has a different narrator.

A rollicking good thriller

Very easy to get involved. Excellently narrated and good story line. Worth exploring the follow up
