Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But will the SAS be able to outfox the IRA as they prepare a deadly reprisal? May 1987: a successful SAS ambush results in the deaths of eight IRA terrorists in Loughgall. Knowing that retaliation is certain and that Gibraltar has been selected by the IRA as a 'soft' target associated with British imperialism, British intelligence goes on the alert.

Shaun Clarke's writing is particularly bad, every attempt at Belfast character starts with the word "sure" and normally finishes with "bhoyo or bejesus". He's obviously never been to the country and almost every Irish town or village is mispronounced by Joseph Balderrama who is without a doubt the worst narrator I've ever heard on audio books he tries to do an Irish accent which sometimes sounds more like a really poor attempt at Apu from the Simpsons. Mad Dan is particularly bad. But "sure to be sure it time for me to go bejusus". Save your credit. Truly a terrible book made worse by the narration.
