Product Description

Product Description

Captain James Diamond, VC is a Royal Marine hero who has fallen from grace. Down on his luck and living a reclusive existence he is unexpectedly offered a lifeline. For the first time in years things are starting to look up until they go horribly wrong. Whilst relaxing on his millionaire publicist’s private island he is taken hostage along with five others in an audacious attack by Somali pirates. Incarcerated in an old colonial prison he is now in a nightmare world where he must compete against the other hostages in a series of terrifying challenges where the loser pays with their life. As one by one they are executed James begins to wonder whether everything is quite what it seems. It would appear that he should have read the small print on his contract.

More About the Author

Malcolm Instone is a British author and the thriller 'Contracted to Die' is his first novel.

A former Royal Navy officer he has travelled extensively, meeting and working with a host of extraordinary characters. Since leaving the navy it has been his dream to put pen to paper in order to capture the professionalism and humour of the soldier, sailor, airman and marine whilst at the same time letting his imagination run riot.

He enjoyed writing Contracted to Die immensely and hopes that reading it will be equally satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars This summer's must read block buster thriller 16 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you like books by Andy McNab or Chris Ryan then you are going to just love Instone. Gripping thriller written at a pace and with added wit. I quite literally could not put this book down and ripped through it in a weekend. Superb.

As said enjoyable and fast paced. Although I have guessed the twist early on it was still good to read and kept me entertained to the end. Will look out for the sequel and other books by the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 24 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This thriller novel was recommended to me by a male friend and I really enjoyed it, although wasn't sure I would! It's well written and absorbing with a host of colourful characters and a good deal of humour, some of which made me laugh out loud. I was looking for a real page turner to read while on holiday and I wasn't disappointed. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel! Great read!
