Faster, deadlier, grittier, Chris Ryan's Extreme books are a sharp shock of a read.
Mission 4: Deadliest Enemy
Part 4 of the fourth Chris Ryan Extreme series.
Loyalty has a price. So does former SAS operator John Bald. When renegade mercenary Kurt Pretorius makes him a staggering offer, Bald is tempted to go along for the ride. But as he is thrust head-first into a masterful deceit, Bald soon realizes that all is not it seems, and there is an evil at work far more sinister than he ever imagined. With time running out, Bald must kill Pretorius before he brings down everyone around him. It's a mission Bald was born to do. Because sometimes, the only way to beat your deadliest enemy...is to be like your deadliest enemy.
Praise for CHRIS RYAN EXTREME: HARD TARGET: 'This high octane tale certainly packs a punch.' - News of the World
Former SAS corporal and the only man to escape death or capture during the Bravo Two Zero operation in the 1991 Gulf War, Chris Ryan turned to writing thrillers to tell the stories the Official Secrets Act stops him putting in his non-fiction. His novels have gone on to inspire the Sky One series Strike Back.
Born near Newcastle in 1961, Chris Ryan joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years there he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris Ryan was the only member of an eight-man unit to escape from Iraq, where three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal.
He wrote about his experiences in the bestseller The One That Got Away, which was adapted for screen, and since then has written three other works of non-fiction, over twenty bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books.
