Summary

Complete and unabridged. From the author of the best-selling Danny Black series and the hit TV show Strikeback.

Despatches from the secret world behind the headlines. Former SAS legend Chris Ryan brings you his 17th novel, filled with his trademark action, thrills and inside knowledge.

Osama Bin Laden is dead. The President of the United States knows it. The world knows it. And SAS hero Joe Mansfield knows it. He was on the ground in Pakistan when it happened. He saw Seal Team 6 go in, and he saw them extract with their grisly cargo. He was in the right place at the right time.

Or maybe the wrong place at the wrong time.

Because now somebody wants Joe dead, and they're willing to do anything to make it happen. His world is violently dismantled. His family is targeted, his reputation destroyed. And as a mysterious and ruthless enemy plans a devastating terror attack on both sides of the Atlantic, Joe knows this: his only chance of survival is to find out what happened in Bin Laden's compound the night the Americans went in.

But an unseen, menacing power has footprints it needs to cover. And it will stop at nothing to prevent him uncovering the sinister truth....

Unrelenting plot that won’t let go

It is a while since I heard or read a Chris Ryan book and this one made me want more. The narration was superb and made me forget it was one person reading.
There were too many moments in the plot designed to shock and they did. One in particular made me stop listening and take a break until I reminded myself this was fiction.
I hate that Chris Ryan plays fast and loose with his characters, sorry can’t explain without spoilers, and I wish he understood his readers a little more we want to read thrillers not horror.
That said this was a page turner and will make me listen to Ryan again.

Good listen

A good story, thoroughly enjoyed it. My only complaint is the narrator should check the correct pronunciations of some of the places and military terms. Surprisingly he appears to be British but does not know how to pronounce British place names, fine for those who are unaware but annoying for those that are.

Good story, poor narration

Got deeper and deeper, and leaves it open for next book. Not the best, but good.

Missed something in narration, lack of emotion, didn’t grip you like Barnaby or other narrators. Mispronounced words, needed proofing.
