Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But will the SAS be able to find an IRA sniper before he finds them?
South Armagh, 1989: cheering mobs stand over the body of a British soldier. He is the ninth to have been killed by the so-called Border Fox, an IRA sniper whose activities have helped make this area of the United Kingdom the most feared killing ground in Western Europe.
The British government is determined to break the tightly knit South Armagh Brigade of the IRA before more lives are lost. The SAS men of Ulster Troop are the best in the world at surveillance, unsurpassed in counterinsurgency techniques. And now, once again, they are going to have to prove it.
Their hunt for the Border Fox and the terrorists of South Armagh will be a murderous, little-publicized war in which every encounter, whether in or out of uniform, is potentially a battle to the death.

Ex-sailor who is finding audible a good way to read books. I listen in the car and, often, cannot wait to drive somewhere !!
I thought this was one of the best books I've listened to on this subject. Paul Thornley is always good as the narrator: this is the first time I've heard one of the books of this author. I couldn't put the book down and was only disappointed with one thing, it was too short!!
Husband, Father and Southampton season ticket holder and likes the odd glass of red wine and a good book...
Gripping from the off could not stop listening, intense and fast moving, fully recommended read.
Drop the accents and make it a bit more believable by more detail.
Thought it was OK but tried too hard to sound realistic when it really wasn't.
