London. Paris. New York. One by one the power systems get switched off in three of the world's major cities, plunging them into darkness and chaos. Is this the greatest terrorist spectacular since 9-11? Josh Harding, a battle-hardened SAS soldier, working undercover on anti-terrorist operations, finds himself in a ditch in the wilderness of Arizona. His memory is gone. And the police are hunting him for murder. As Josh struggles to recover his memory, and stay one step ahead of the police, he is drawn into a deadly conspiracy. To stay alive, he must find out who he is, and why he was shot. And who is turning off the power around the world.
Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He 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.
For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. 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, fourteen bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books.
His latest series of novels - the Extreme books take you even further into the heart of the mission with more extreme action, more extreme language and more extreme pace. Like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, you'll feel part of the team.
He lectures in business motivation and security, and is a consultant for a security organisation. You can find out more information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ChrisRyanBooks. You can also follow Chris on Twitter @exSASChrisRyan
