"SAS Captain Alex Temple is on an urgent mission. Someone has been murdering MI5 offiers and it looks as if the killer is an insider, one of the Regiment's own. Alex's task is to track down and eliminate the killer, and to assist him he is assigned an MI5 liaison offier--the attractive but abrasive Dawn Harding. The body-count is mounting and a deadly and relentless manhunt begins. Soon Alex will learn the bitter truth: in the shadowy battlegrounds of the Intelligence wars, there is no good and no evil--only winners and losers.

'Bone-crunching action...tough and fast-moving' Amazon"

Suspense, action, and true-to-life knowledge of the hunt!

The author, Chris Ryan, was 10 years involved in overt and covert operations. During the Gulf War, he was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq, of which three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS.
