'As in The Day of the Jackal and a host of other gripping tales, the master has done a brilliant job' (The Times)
In a matter of weeks Saddam Hussein will invade Kuwait and the Allied forces need all the information they can get to help the resistance. But when they intercept a top-secret fragment of radio referring to a lethal weapon that could rain down death and destruction, one man must risk everything to stop it.
SAS Major Mike Martin is sent undercover into Kuwait to assess Iraqi strength. Taken into the heart of Baghdad by enemy forces, he is tasked with 'running' the Iraqi spy known as Jericho, a sleeper who can provide vital information. But at a price.
This is the most hazardous mission of Martin's life: to find and destroy the secret weapon they call Qubth-ut-Allah - the Fist of God.
The master in storytelling
The ability to combine fiction into reality is done brilliantly here. An absolute master class.
A Gripping Read
It was hard to put down. It felt realistic and genuine. I commented that perhaps Tony Blair must have been reading this at night when he was convinced that Saddam had WMDs in the second instalment of Iraq v the West
Utterly brilliant, totally captivating. The Master of thrillers at his best; the amazing weaving of plausible storyline, with detailed research AND the fact he's 'been there' leaves you wondering if this is FACTs or fiction..
