Firefight

A terrorist assault. A killer at the unfastened. And a last, determined undertaking . . .

Former SAS Captain, Tom Jackson, is a guy with not anything to lose. A veteran of the main risky missions the Regiment may perhaps throw at him, his existence was once torn aside the day a terrorist assault killed his relatives. Now he grieves in obscurity, the realm of conflict not anything yet memory.

However, humans greater up the chain of command produce other plans for Jackson. they're in a multitude in their personal making, and make him a suggestion he can’t refuse — a proposal that would take him again into the brutal theatre of battle. There’s a catastrophe ready to take place, which just one individual may help hinder, and that individual is being held via the Taliban insurgency within the depths of a harsh Afghanistan iciness.

As Tom reluctantly prepares for this ultimate project, he does so within the wisdom that it'll cease a devastating terrorist assault — in addition to fulfill an ulterior intent of his personal. yet as occasions start to spread, Tom suspects that somebody is taking part in a online game with him; that no-one could be depended on; and that during the murky international of overseas terrorism, issues are seldom what they appear . . .

From the alternate Paperback variation.
