Summary

Ex-special forces soldier Alex Abbott escaped the Middle East under a cloud and now lives hand-to-mouth in Singapore. Scraping a living as a gun for hire and estranged from his family, Abbott is haunted by ghosts of the past, drinking to dull the pain. Life's tough, but there is one upside - at least he's not in Baghdad.

That's about to change.

When a job goes badly wrong, Abbott's in hot water. Next he learns that his military son, Nathan, is missing in Iraq. Knowing something is wrong, needing to find his son and desperate for redemption, Abbott has no choice but to go back.

Returning to Baghdad, Abbott renews old acquaintances and begins his search for Nathan. The body count rises as old wounds open and he struggles to confront his demons, self-medicating the only way he knows how. But when one of his old crew turns up dead in mysterious circumstances and the link with Nathan is clear, Abbott begins to suspect a trap.

But who is the hunter? And who is the hunted?

Great story

Was hooked from the beginning only thing I struggled with at time was remembering who was who because the odd one got called my name then nickname but could have just been with not having an image to mind, 100% will be listening to the next one.

Well done Ollie

I really enjoyed Ollies first two books so went ahead with this before realising it was fiction. It was a pleasant surprise and right up my street. I really enjoy Andy McNab books and this is in the same remit. It it’s more meaningful having gotten to know Ollie through his other books that the insight he brings to the characters relationship with alcohol, past colleagues and his son comes from a realistic and genuine place. I really look forward to following these books for years to come.

Very disappointed after his previous books

I was expecting great stuff after his other books but this one is So boring! overly descriptive about irrelevant stuff, and we get that the main character has a drink problem no need to go on and on about it endlessly in unnecessary detail. I kept giving it chance after chance for the story to pick up and get into the action but after 30 chapters of nothing I gave up.

exciting and twisting story

from someone who doesn't ordinarily read/listen to fiction books I highly recommend this for the great story line that had me thinking during the night about what happened to the main characters.
