Publisher's Summary

The lot of an SAS man is not always a happy one.

Strikeback hero John Porter is sent on a mission with Regimental scallywag John Bald. Where Porter plays it by the book, Bald will always want to break the rules. They are sent to Sierra Leone to extract Ronald Soames, a former CEO of the Regiment and now right-hand man to the President. But when Porter and Bald arrive, the Englishman has disappeared, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.

Rebels are threatening to take over the country and its diamond mines - and to massacre all foreigners. Porter and Bald find themselves fighting shoulder to shoulder with the Regiment psychopath, who is already embedded in the country. But it soon becomes clear that the Firm has lied to them about the true nature of the mission.

What seems at first to be a battle to control Sierra Leone's diamond mines will turn out to be about a much greater evil - and with a trail that leads back to both Westminster and the Kremlin.

    "Not his best book"

    I've listened to all his stories as well as Andy mcnabs. This story carries on from his last novel but is just lacking in places. However I may just be spoiled as his other works are brilliant. So even if this is your first. Listen to the ready to make your own mind up.

    "Brutal"

    More brutal than your normal war fiction maybe not for everyone but it is a good read.

    Ex-sailor who is finding audible a good way to read books. I listen in the car and, often, cannot wait to drive somewhere !!

    Story
    "Not what I expected"

    Chris Ryan at his best. Normal operations for Bold and Porter, this time in Africa, plenty of action, then a rather surprising ending. I'd waited a while for this book to come out. Narration was OK as well. Lost my audible connection for a while ... the suspense was agony. I was not disappointed and will hope for more in this series.

    "Shadow Kill"

    Unexpected twist towards end of book but fairly predictable prior to this.
    Easy listening but not one of his best

    Story
    "Porter & Bald - action, gut-wrenching sub-plots & another move on the chessboard!"

    Flawed characters and fast-moving story. Gratuitous and colourful language make me laugh out loud.
    Sometimes the accents waiver but it doesn't detract from the story.
    Love Chris Ryan's books.
