    Putin and the Russians have suffered too many killings of their own people in the past. Now they want the whole of the 'Prime Minister's private army' wiped out, including Blake Johnson and Charles Ferguson. Somebody is after them: Blake, Harry Miller, his sister, Monica, Harry Salter and Billy. The only people spared are Roper and Dillon. After surviving a car bomb, Ferguson heads a desperate search to uncover the perpetrator.

    Good and true to the written work.

    Very good, although the accents the narrator put on didn't do the characters justice. However, still an excellent 'Read'

    Treachery has a price, in the mesmerizing new Sean Dillon thriller from the Sunday Times-bestselling author. Helmand Province, Afghanistan: a lone convoy edges its way towards a deserted mountain village, led by US Army Rangers in Mastiff APVs. Stopping to search the area, the Rangers are hit by a massive roadside bomb, and as half the patrol lie dead or injured, the rest are ambushed with military precision.

    Excellent, fast-paced adventure. It's a pleasure to listen to a well-read book - although I still prefer to read myself!
