    In Paris, an elderly man is assassinated as he takes his morning walk. In the war-torn cities of Syria, government forces wage a bloody war against their own people. The Russians are propping up the government, the French are backing one rebel fraction and the British are backing another.

Only by locating such men before they make it into the UK can the Regiment stop them committing their acts of terror on British soil.

    Enjoyable Chris Ryan grit
