Publisher Description

‘Brutal and brilliant’ Tom Marcus, author of SOLDIER SPY

Former SAS Sergeant Major John Carr is relaxing on a Spanish beach, when a man with dark eyes attracts his attention. Fixated on a group of young Britons, the man doesn’t notice Carr and soon moves on.

Within the hour, the Costa del Sol will be plunged into one of the most audacious and horrifying terrorist attacks Europe has ever seen.

In a co-ordinated strike, armed men storm both the beach and a cruise ship anchored further up the coast. But the terrorists – hiding personal greed under the veil of religious extremism – have an even bolder plan.

Constrained by the sensitive political situation, MI6 and the Prime Minister must confront the possibility of leading a secret operation against a brutal enemy. And then find the right man to head it . . .

Enter John Carr.

Praise for The Angry Sea:

‘Packed with authentic detail about the defence and intelligence communities, it rattles along at a furious pace, never takings its foot off the accelerator. A terrific story splendidly told’ Daily Mail

‘**** . . . [A] top actioner’ Weekend Sport

‘[Deegan] knows how to tell an unnervingly realistic story – and The Angry Sea is involving from the start and gripping to the end’ Choice

Praise for James Deegan:

‘You couldn’t make it up. Brilliant’ Jeffrey Archer

‘Inevitably Deegan will be compared to Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, but he adds his own brand of contemporary authenticity. Carr is a hero for our times.’
Daily Mail

‘As close as it gets to the real thing’
Mark 'Billy' Billingham MBE. Former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS Who Dares Wins

‘James Deegan writes with masterful authority and unsurpassed experience as he transports the reader deep into the troubles of Northern Ireland – and then brings them back up to date with a dramatic bang’ Chantelle Taylor, Combat Medic and author of Battleworn

Don’t miss it

Sensational. Great story, intriguing characters and without doubt you can tell this was written by a man who knows a lot about the combat experience. Loved it.

With The Angry Sea, James Deegan has crafted a fantastic and striking follow up to his debut novel Once A Pilgrim by taking the reader on another fast paced tale filled with incident courtesy of the main character John Carr! Dynamite!!🤓👍🏻

Angry Sea = Angry Reader

There is only one underlying problem when reading Deegan’s books.....and that is that he can’t write the next one quick enough!
This guy really is different gravy when compared to other authors within his genre.
As soon as that first page is turned you’re drawn into his captivating world and compelled not to put the book down until you’ve finished.
I for one cannot wait until his next book, until then I am left only to trawl the mediocre efforts on the shelves that leave a deep sense of disappointment.
Keep up the great work James.
