Summary

John Porter, hero of the original Strikeback novel and TV series, returns in an exciting adventure when old enemies attack the SAS.

It's 1999. A bitterly cold morning in the Brecon Beacons, and the soldiers trying out for SAS Selection are preparing to face their toughest test yet. Overseeing the soldiers is John Porter: once a promising young Blade, now a broken man and a drunk, seeing out his days in the Regiment Training Wing.

But before the Fan Dance can begin, six masked gunmen carry out a devastating attack. Dozens of soldiers are killed. In the aftermath of the massacre, and with a government desperate for action, Porter and another surviving operator, John Bald, are taken to a secretive briefing in London. Their orders - to hunt down and kill those responsible for the attack.

What follows is a deadly game of kill or be killed as Bald and Porter lead a Strike Team across Europe on a blood-soaked mission of revenge. But as they draw closer to their ultimate target, the men discover that there is a greater threat - much closer to home....

One of Chris Ryan's bests!

This is the first audio booked I have listened to for a number of years. I am a massive Chris Ryan fan, read all of his Danny Black series books and this doesn't disappoint. It keeps you on edge and excited, honestly this book has it all as you go on the journey. The voice actor is great, what more can I say?

Excellent narration of a good action adventure

Barnaby Edwards is about the best narrator I have heard on Audible. I look forward to him narrating another action adventure like this one. As for the story it is a good and fast paced story. I will certainly listen to a sequel.

Ghastly pornographic violence.

Gosh, what sort of weirdo's like this sort of comic book cartoon wannabe nonsense ? Out of order, more horror than fiction. Compare this to something like J Le Carre where there is intelligence- great plot and character development - and moments of real jeopardy and terror - this is second rate Daily Mail sensationalist nonsense. Ghastly. I am exchanging this book.
