If you love the Strikeback series, pre-order the thrilling new book, Red Strike, now. Coming February 2019.
John Porter, hero of the original Strikeback novel and TV series returns in an exciting adventure, when old enemies attack the SAS.
1999. A bitterly cold morning in the Brecon Beacons, and the soldiers trying out for SAS Selection are preparing to face their toughest test yet. Overseeing the soldiers is John Porter: once a promising young Blade, now a broken man and a drunk, seeing out his days in the Regiment Training Wing.
But before the Fan Dance can begin, six masked gunmen carry out a devastating attack. Dozens of soldiers are killed. In the aftermath of the massacre, and with a government desperate for action, Porter and another surviving operator, John Bald, are taken to a secretive briefing in London. Their orders - to hunt down and kill those responsible for the attack.
What follows is a deadly game of kill or be killed as Bald and Porter lead a Strike Team across Europe on a blood-soaked mission of revenge. But as they draw closer to their ultimate target, the men discover that there is a greater threat - much closer to home...
Quite good storyline but do people still use the word “mucker”
If he paid in pesetas in 1999 he would have been shot
Death list once again a non stop epic could not stop reading until the final page.
Waiting for the next book.From one of my favourite authors.
Keep up the good work, how soon is the next book due out?
Disappointing and poorly written
I found myself rather annoyed reading this as the continuity with the original Strike Back book is very poor. Set in 1999 it says John Porter's daughter celebrates her 8th birthday during the current adventure. However in Strike Back she is born in 1989 at the start of Porter's disasterous first mission- making her 10. Small inconsistencies throughout the text was irritating and parts unbelievable when you have read the original. The book has the potential for a great storyline by involving John Bald from the Extreme series, but to me this purely felt like a "painting by numbers" exercise and none of the cleverness of the plot twists in the Danny Black books. The ending predictable and leaves it open for more books to follow with the establishment of Section 20- which has been a part of the TV series rather than the original book. Sadly disappointed.
