Publisher's Summary

Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But can the SAS survive working deep undercover among the terrorists of Northern Ireland?

It is the 1970s, and a mean and dirty war is being waged on British soil. Sectarian violence is an almost daily occurrence, and the terrorist groups, who finance their operations through robbery, fraud and extortion, engage in torture, assassination and wholesale slaughter.

To cope with the terrorists' activities, the British Army need the support of exceptional soldiers who can operate deep undercover - the SAS. The regiment is soon embroiled in some of the most secretive, dangerous and controversial activities in its history. These include plain-clothes work in the towns and cities, the running of operational posts in rural areas, surveillance and intelligence gathering, ambushes and daring cross-border raids.

Sniper Fire in Belfast is a nerve-jangling adventure about the most daring soldiers in military history, where friend and foe look the same and each encounter could be their last.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is a little gem. What more can I say? It kept me interested throughout and looking forward to my next listen each time I put it away. Being a huge fan of the SAS, my expectations were high. The storyline is brilliant, the characters are what Id expect SAS soldiers to be like and I loved listening to every minute of it.

    I'm so pleased there are three more, and an additional three books due for release later this month. Shaun Clarke has done well here, I just hope his other books match up to this one!

    Don't waste another second. A credit well spent I assure you.

    Ps make Paul thornley the only narrator for these books. He is superb.

    Ex-Sailor who is spending much time on the road. Approaching 100 books I find this a good way to 'read' books and can't wait to drive now.

    "Riveting Story but too short"

    Second book I've read in the series. Again I'm left feeling a little short changed and feel with a little more effort the story could be double the length with more opportunity to investigate the characters. Paul Thornley delivers, as always, as narrator.

    brilliant narrator

    Story
    "Errors"

    Given the timeline of the story which I assumed to be 1970's even early 80's, some factual errors

    British troops in Ireland were equipped with the 7.63 SLR not the SA80 as stated in the story, also they would have had the S9 respirator, the harness on this does not allow it to hang from the neck, up on top of your head yes!

    M16 rifles were available to COP troops and SAS. THE 9mm SMG was in evidence too.

    Just silly things but when you have been there like I have these things niggle

    I write short stories and love reading. I can't stand poor grammar though. I like most types of books but I don't like erotica or romance.

    Story
    "God bless bloody England. God it's worse than america"

    Oh good lord. God bless England and all that sail in her. Not me. Well we all know that England sucks and Brtitain gesides so let's not labour the point in a bloody book for heaven's sake. Ireland was hard done to but it's not the only country to feel the iron unforgiving heel of jackbooted almost Nazi britain in its time. The book is so badly written I got no further than chapter 2 and then all the consciience speechifying got too much. Name dropping and patriotic rubbish and all for the sake of 'doing the right thing'. No thank you. Just awful unless you are the kind of person to fall for the stupidity of patriotism and the 'we love our country just because we were born here' brigade.
