Publisher's Summary

A migrant boat battles through the rough Mediterranean. Its passengers are desperate, starving and scared. They are also being ruthlessly targeted by the SAS.

Islamic State militants are smuggling themselves into Europe using these boats. Only by locating such men before they make it into the UK can the Regiment stop them committing their acts of terror on British soil.

When one of these migrants reveals plans for a sickening Christmas Day atrocity in London, SAS operative Danny Black is tasked with infiltrating the most dangerous theatre of war in the world: Islamic State heartland. There, he and his team must lift a brutal IS commander - the only man who knows all the details of the London attack. The commander surrounds himself with vicious militants and a harem of sex slaves whom he treats in the most sadistic ways imaginable. And his jihadi wife is, if possible, even more abominable than he is.

As Danny pits himself against the violent thugs of the Islamic State, he learns that it is not just the UK that is under threat. His very presence on the mission has put at risk the safety of those closest to him. And he discovers that there are greater forces at work here who do not care if the innocent live or die.

Now there is nothing Danny will not do, no line he will not cross, to protect his family. Whether that makes him a good soldier or a bad soldier he neither knows nor cares. Because as he is fast learning, it is sometimes impossible to tell the difference between the two. And as every SAS soldier is trained to understand, the worst threats often come from the most unexpected places....

    "Half a story again"

    The story was great as far as it went but I do think that Audible should stop making audible books out of stories which are not complete when the next "instalment is not available. Further more any part stories should be marked clearly as such. I don't want to waste my time reading half a book. From a disappointed long standing customer.

    "Enjoyable Chris Ryan grit"

    The next instalment of the Danny Black series didn't leave me disappointed, with 3 sub plots keeping you guessing how they all come together. Only frustration was there will (Better be) another follow up to this so a certain character has his comeuppance.

    The performance is good without any sound effects that other stories have which I personally don't like, always makes me smile when the reader with a tough sas soldier voice then has to speak as a female character.

    If you have read the other Danny Black books it follows up well, plenty of action and a couple of twists

    "Excellent"

    My first audible book of this series and I was a bit u sure at the start
    The characters seems a bit rough and ragged and it didn't paint them in the best light
    However once it got going I was hooked,well worth being patient and a great story
    I will look into the rest of these now
    Can't wait

    "CHRIS RYAN'S SHADOW WRITER???????????????"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends what other books he or she had to read. Would recommend them first.


    What was most disappointing about Chris Ryan’s story?

    Either this is a shadow writer or Mr Ryan has been outcasted from the Special Forces fraternity. Whilst Andy McNabs books and some of Chris Ryan's depict the SAS as the professionals that they clearly are, the Danny Black and the Extreme series of books by Ryan make them out to be cocaine fuelled thugs. In many cases in these books the plot depicts units that are sent into operations, operators who hate each other. This wouldnt happen in any unit, let alone an elite one such as the SAS. I can't help but think that the SAS are being portrayed by these books as a bunch of cowboys.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Fenner?

    Christopher Biggins would have done a better job.


    Did Bad Soldier inspire you to do anything?

    Consider not reading any more of this series. As I've read everyone elses (Forsyth, McNab, Seymour, Flynn) I'm out of options.
