The lion of revolution is coming, insidious and menacing, to the quiet West African republic of Free Guinea.
In the hiatus following the Falklands War, a group of hardened SAS troops is sent as a safeguard against rumblings of political discontent against the moderate elected government. It is intended to provide the ideal location for the men to rest after the violent burst of full-blooded warfare in the South Atlantic.
And so it does – that is, until a tourist is found dead on the beach.
In the remote territory up country, the forces of violence and terror are gathering and it is certain that innocent blood will be spilled.
That is when the legendary SAS captain returns. To the only woman he has ever loved.
And to a brooding land of fear and unrest, swept by a rising tide of revolutionary fervour and bloodlust.
‘Frightening credibility’ Gloucester Citizen
‘An all-actioner which never slows’ Glasgow Evening Times
He was on the Z-file, the last resort. Infiltrator, investigator and sometime executioner.
A freelance to be used when all else fails. Uniquely qualified to operate in dangerous territory where even government agencies fear to tread – against state tyranny, terrorism and narcotics traffickers. Reaching out beyond the arm of international law to dispense justice, however rough.
Working for various human rights organisations, the DEA and several intelligence agencies. And for the anonymous organisation to which he has made a very personal pledge.
A man driven by a hatred of intimidation and an unquenchable thirst for revenge. Pursued by dark demons from his past.
So when vast quantities of White Viper – an exceptionally pure and branded cocaine – threaten to flood Britain, Europe and the USA, he is the natural choice to head-up a covert search-and-destroy operation. One that is to plunge him into the deadliest, most harrowing and unnerving mission of his life.
The author of WHISPER WHO DARES, THE TICK TOCK MAN and SOME UNHOLY WAR has created a startlingly different kind of hero and a stunning page-turner inspired by real people and events.
‘Explosive…all the more page-turning because it reads so close to the truth.’ Daily Mail
‘For your action novel and authentic thriller, Terence Strong is hard to beat.’ Today
He is a sergeant-major in the SAS. His task is to snatch a defecting Russian ‘Star Wars’ scientist from Stockholm.
She is the she-wolf. Leader of a crack Spetsnaz pack. Her task is to get the scientist back. Dead or alive. Their paths have crossed before. Now the score has to be settled.
In between is the scientist, ruthlessly manipulated by both sides, torn between loyalty to his country and the love of a woman.
THAT LAST MOUNTAIN is a story of sweeping passion and betrayal, of endurance and breath-taking action in the Scandinavian mountains – the toughest terrain on earth.
‘Genuinely exciting’ Sunday Telegraph
He is a journalist who knows too much.
She is his lover, a Norwegian press photographer who shares his deadly secret.
They are held in revolution-torn Iran, and President Khomeini wants them to talk. Britain is determined they should not…
Their fate lies in the hands of an SAS team that must disappear into the hostile turmoil of Iran in a desperate rescue bid against the clock.
A gruelling ordeal that calls for ingenuity, sacrifice and courage in a dangerous and desolate terrain – cut off from the outside world.
This is a story of passions and loyalties tested to destruction as the sweeping shadow of fanaticism and terror darkens the land.
“A nail biter climax” NEWCASTLE JOURNAL
“No one can cram in the action like Strong” GLASGOW EVENING NEWS
He has the most dangerous job in the world: defusing terrorist bombs. A job that demands nerves of steel and courage to match.
But his skill is being tested to the limit by a new IRA bombing campaign. It’s different from the others, each device more deadly and cunning than the last, each more difficult for him to neutralise. It’s almost as if someone is testing him, trying to find his limits – a long-dead adversary reaching out for him from beyond the grave.
Time and luck are running out. From Belfast to London, he is pitched into a very personal battle – a fight where just one small mistake will be his last.
From the author of WHISPER WHO DARES, THE FIFTH HOSTAGE and SOME UNHOLY WAR, this is a terrifying, brilliantly researched journey into the dark, claustrophobic world of the professional bomb-disposal man.
‘Breathless entertainment’ The Guardian
It is 1976 and Northern Ireland is not a pretty place. The UK province is torn by sectarian hatred and violence.
Under increasing pressure, the Provisional IRA comes up with a masterstroke that forces the British government to take desperate action. The terrorist organisation enlists the help of rogue former members from America’s Special Forces to raise the carnage and chaos to a new level.
Four men from the British Army’s legendary SAS are given their toughest mission yet…to probe the inner sanctum of the IRA’s terror machine. Never before has so much been at stake.
One small Sabre team is pitted against the Provos’ latest and most secret combat force in a mission so secret that you will scarcely believe it and everyone will deny.
It is a bitter sweet story of innocence, love and evil, treachery and courage in a dark world where nothing is as it seems.

DOUG Sandom’s part in the making of the most exciting rock band in the world can never be underestimated. He joined The Who – then known as The Detours – as their drummer in 1962 after an unexpected meeting with Roger Daltrey on a west London street. It was a time when fires were being lit under the music scene worldwide, everything had to change and The Detours had a long way to go to become revolutionary leaders in their field. Having finally decided to write his memoirs, Doug Sandom chronicles each stage of the band’s transition right up to his, Roger Daltrey’s, Pete Townshend’s and John Entwistle’s emergence from their chrysalis as The Who. It is a punchy tale of gritty determination and ever-burning passion for music. As Pete Townshend writes in his moving Foreword ‘Doug Sandom’s work with our band gave me the confidence to drive the band as a writer and creative thinker . . . ’
IT SEEMS that almost every week Sarah Ferguson – the Duchess of York, known to one and all as Fergie – makes headlines with her efforts to re-brand herself and explain her troubles. There are the weight-loss problems, the ongoing differences with the Royal Family and her financial difficulties. But how did it all start? It seemed like a fairy-tale come true when Sarah married the Queen’s favourite son, Prince Andrew, and became one of the best-known women in the world. She was feted wherever she went – and she went everywhere. But the Duchess’s world was to come crashing down in spectacular fashion.
We’ve all heard the rumours, now here’s a book that sets out the facts about all the scandals. Finally, the explosive truth from two experts – CHRIS HUTCHINS, the journalist who broke the palace-rocking story of Fergie’s risqué liaison with handsome Texan Steve Wyatt, and PETER THOMPSON, a former editor of London’s Daily Mirror, the paper that ran the sexy St. Tropez stories of Fergie and her “financial advisor” Johnny Bryan. The book also details her often-tempestuous relationship with Princess Diana and how both women decided to end their marriages.

“He comes home Friday, we have a row on Saturday and he goes back on Sunday”
“The marriage was going badly and the arguments bordered on domestic violence.”
THE OTHER MEN IN HER LIFE WHO SHOCKED THE WORLD…….

“He was kissing her…or positioned at her feet sucking on her toes.”
THE RELENTLESS PRESSURE SHE COULDN’T ESCAPE………
“Sarah seemed to feel she only had two options: escape or surrender.”

PRINCE Harry is the most interesting – indeed the most exciting – member of the Royal Family and this no-holds-barred biography tells his story for the first time. Son of the late Princess Diana – the most famous woman on Earth – and Prince Charles, the next king, and brother of William, the king after that, he is determined to live by his mantra: ‘I am what I am’. From a childhood overshadowed by his parents’ troubled marriage and scarred by the tragic death of his mother, to his brilliant public performances at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the London Olympics and his brother’s wedding, this book charts the remarkable journey of a young man with an extraordinary destiny. It also reveals details of his extraordinary love life, telling for the first time what caused his affair with Cressida Bonas to collapse. The author has enjoyed unparalleled access to a wide variety of people whose lives Harry has touched: senior aides, humble members of palace staff, aristocrats, bodyguards, school friends, comrades-in-arms . . . and old flames. They piece together the tale of a young man who admirably has created a life so different from the one set out for him by what he describes as ‘an accident of birth’.
‘Warm-hearted. Brave. but at times recklessly impulsive. A new biography gives a fascinating psychological insight into the forces that shaped Harry, the playboy Prince.’
‘Hutchins’ biography [of Harry’s mother] Diana’s Nightmare, was full of new insights and I remained riveted to the end.’
Dominick Dunne, award-winning American author.
