Summary

Two hundred miles south of the Devon coastline, Palestinian freedom fighter Abed Abu Omar and 20 men prepare for their most daring mission yet - the hijack of a supertanker, a five-storey superstructure laden with oil. Meanwhile, in an Elizabethan country house, SBS operative Stratton has been seconded to bodyguard work and is bored by the lack of challenge. Not for long.

With the helter-skelter pace that defined Duncan Falconer's brilliant debut, The Hostage, Stratton has been whisked away by helicopter to assist in a daring rescue. The Hijack ranges from London to the Gaza Strip, from Riga in Latvia to Jerusalem. With a rich cast of characters from Russian secret service operatives to Al Qaeda terrorists and the Israeli military, the authentic detail and heart-stopping narrative will propel Duncan Falconer to the highest class of adventure writers.

Brilliant

This was my first book and the first one id read in the series, and although it was the second book in the series was able to switch on to the characters straight away. The story its self was very detailed and left nothing out, it was narated brilliantly with the story teller bringing the characters alive with their accents, all in all a rivetting book that was hard to put down, would highly reccomend.
