Description

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. And in north Africa, young SAS trooper Jamie Truman is coming to the end of a gruelling tour of duty, or so he thinks.

Jamie has a new mission. An MI6 agent needs to make contact with Syrian rebel forces, and also with the private military contractors who are - unofficially - training this rebel faction as it struggles to bring down their government and establish a new regime that will be favourable to British business interests. As they travel deep into rebel heartland, Jamie will learn who the masters of war, the men who call the shots, really are. As Jamie finds himself sucked into the murky orbit of the private military, he discovers a world where death is dispensed by the highest bidder and individuals will betray anybody if the price is right. And where a secret lurks that will change the course of Jamie's own life, however long that might last...

Struggled to get through it

I’m normally a fan of Ryan’s other media and work as a technical advisor. He has proven himself as a member of the SAS so I thought I’d give his book a try as I am a huge fan of authors such as Clancy, Thor, Flynn, and Taylor. This book, however, was gruesome for the sake of being gruesome.

Plot was intriguing but none of the characters were likeable. While I expected some gritty action etc, there are graphic instances of torture, rape, and murder of women and children that I felt were not necessary for the plot. Again I am all for realistic violence and the portrayal of the morale “grey” area, but only if it is good for plot development.

It wasn’t a horrible book, I felt it just tries too hard.
