Summary

The sixth book in the Danny Black series. 

The attack dog had its jaws clamped round the target's forearm and had sunk its teeth into his flesh. Danny could see the dark stain of blood through his night-vision goggles. The screaming had stopped. The target was staring blindly into the darkness, but he clearly knew there were armed men approaching him....

Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The Taliban are on the rise. 

A top-secret SAS kill team is assassinating high-value targets. It is bloody, violent, relentless work, suitable only for the Regiment's most skilled and ruthless head hunters. 

Like Danny Black. 

But when Danny joins the kill team, he learns that Taliban militants are not his only problem. There are elements within the British Army who want to bring the SAS to book. And there are elements within the SAS who have their crosshairs on Danny himself. 

Framed for a sickening war crime, Danny finds himself hunted in a brutal, dangerous terrain where his wits, training and strength may not be enough to survive. 

And in a world where his enemies are closer than he could have imagined, he must do whatever it takes to get to the truth. If he fails, it will mean the end not only of Danny Black but of the SAS itself.

A cracking listen

The best Danny Black story so far in my opinion. The narrator is great and there's not too much technical spec. I found myself holding my breath a lot during the listen. Thoroughly recommend.

great story and narration

I really liked the narration and story, I just wish it was a little longer. if I hadn't already been into the Danny black series, I wouldn't have used a credit on a 10hour book.

Great addition to the series though

Going downhill

Chris Ryan used to write some pretty good books, but now we are lucky to get one a year
If this took a year to write he wasted his time, the ‘hero’ Danny Black is just a complete knobjockey
)The complete story line is just ridiculous and implausible, you don’t get a kicking and just shrug it off
I gave up after an hour of listening to it, the hardback is no better (I donated my copy to a charity shop, maybe it will fetch a quid, because I felt I was robbed when I bought the hardback and the audiobook
If this his best I won’t be wasting my money any more, there are better, more prolific writers out there

Great Story

This is Danny Black at his best. A spine tingling thriller that kept me wanting more all the way through ! The narrator seemed to pace himself well and kept the excitement going. I mighr just have to listen again!

preposterous plot

well written and read but the story was ridiculously implausible and contrived . I enjoyed the previous books but this was now like Hollywood thrillers with one implausible plot coincidence after another just for effect.
