More About the Author

With a background in journalism and military research, Terence Strong wrote the manuscripts of two action adventure thrillers before WHISPER WHO DARES was snapped up by Hodder & Stoughton and became an instant bestseller.

That first authentic SAS thriller was followed by three more about different activities of the Special Air Service Regiment.

Those well-researched storylines expanded to cover the exciting and unknown realms of counter-terrorism, espionage, bomb-disposal, hostage negotiation, ship-hijacking, narcotics, assassination and international affairs.

His sixteenth and latest thriller SOME UNHOLY WAR covers black ops by special forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and some of the terrifying consequences that follow back home.

Ed Coltrane is an ex-SAS operative who has been trying to hunt down those who murdered his wife Astrid Kweiss in Bosnia-Herzegovina. They are Brigadier Domedzic and Zoran Mihac. An old colleague of Coltrane's tells him that Domedzic is now in London at a British intelligence "safe house". Coltrane quickly senses that he can't miss this last chance to take revenge. But to achieve his aim, he will have to compromise and even face an act of national betrayal... A fast-paced adventure story in Mr Strong's traditional style.

I have read every book by this author more than once over many years. His early writings were excellent reads, intelligently written and storylines others could not come close to. The last couple of books have been a little disappointing and I am convinced that Cold Monday was not written by Terence Strong. This is a terrible book!
It has all been done before, just read McNab or Ryan or other special forces novels. A lot Strong's previous novels have had that air of possibility about them but this story has no credibility about it at all.
Characterisation is poor at best, interaction is wooden and storyline is ridiculous. If this were my first Strong novel, I would not buy anymore, fortunately I've read the best and I'll weather the worst! I am about to read "wheels of fire" by the same author - watch this space!
I read by another reviewer that this is their first book and they thought it was great. If that's the case then he/she will certainly like most of the others - as for this one, instantly forgettable!!

TERENCE STRONG RETURNS WITH ANOTHER ENTERTAINING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING THRILLER. THIS BOOK POSES QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE UK INTELLIGENCE SERVICES AND WHETHER WE SHOULD BE PART OF THE EU. STRONG SPECIALISES IN AUTHENTICITY AND THIS BOOK DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPECIAL FORCES IS AGAIN USED AS A MAJOR PART OF THIS NOVEL AND IT MOVES AT A BREAKNECK PACE TWISTING AND TURNING LIKE A.... TWISTY TURNY THING (THANKS BLACKADDER!).HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
THIS IS MR. STRONGS FIRST BOOK IN 6 YEARS. I JUST HOPE I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT THAT LONG FOR HIS NEXT ONE.

Format: Paperback
This is the first Terence Strong Novel I've read but it certainly won't be the last. The plot is an often used one, but there's a distinct twist to it. Ex-SAS man Ed Coltrane left the Army after his UN-translator wife was horrendously murdered by Serbian Para-military troops in Bosnia. He's spent the last few years trying to hunt down the three men responsible, but with little luck. Out of cash he's about to give up when an "intelligence officer" he used to work with tells him where one of the killers is- working for British intelligence. Unfortunately for the killer, Leonid Rusjivic, he's more of a liability than an asset to MI6 who pay Coltrane £10,000 to "get rid of him". While the money is useful, the killing gives British intelligence a useful hold over Coltrane. If he steps out of line the police will tipped off where to find Rusjivic's killer- and revenge for the murder of his wife is such a perfect motive that no-one will believe his wild claims about MI6.
Shortly afterwards Coltrane is approached by a former colonel, turned euro-MP who believes he's going to be killed for investigating EU corruption. He's right- only a few days later he's blow up & Coltrane has the last surviving copy of his dossier. Wanted for murder, Coltrane goes on the run. Not only do our own security forces want him dead, but powerful men within the EU want rid of him & their influence is far reaching.
This novel could have been an awful hybrid of anti-European propaganda supported by a 3rd rate Jack Higgins/Robert Ludlum style plot. However its so well written that it works. Although fiction, this book isn't too far from the truth and portrays a frightening vision of a super federalized Europe- today's paper carried a story about concern over the powers of European arrest warrants.

Format: Paperback
On the face of it an adventure story. Ex-SAS man trapped into a chase which is actually designed to lead to his own death. Nail-biting stuff to the end.

Actually, a political tract with a decidely anti-EU message. There is even a tag at the end of the book to tell you where you can find out more about the threat which the EU. according to Mr Strong, represents.
