Product Description

Product Description

Sgt. Pat Farrell and his men are back in action, in DARK EMPIRE, The Great Satan's thrilling sequel (Shadow Squadron #2).
Pat and his reserve SAS troop are on a training mission in Kenya, when they are suddenly ordered into the heart of Africa, on what should be a straightforward humanitarian rescue mission.
Unfortunately, nothing is ever straightforward in the Dark Continent. Pat and his men quickly find themselves trapped, deep in the primitive, war-ravaged Congo. Hunted by Congolese government forces and a feral legion of savage, drug-crazed guerrillas, things don't always go to plan...even for the SAS!

More About the Author

Best selling author and former soldier David Black now lives and works in Hertfordshire UK. For years, he lived an extraordinary double life as a London taxi driver and reserve SAS Senior Instructor and Troop Sergeant. He has now launched a highly successful new career as a novelist.

His first book - 'PLAYING FOR ENGLAND' - takes a first-hand look at exactly what the SAS require in a man, and what standard they demand, to pass their rigorous and exhausting selection process. With a 90%+ failure'll have to see for yourself what's entailed!

David Black served with the Territorial SAS, based in Chelsea, London for 11 years while working hard as a black taxi driver in the capital. His double life was the inspiration for his new SAS Shadow Squadron series - The Great Satan #1-Dark Empire #2 and just released - The Devil's Web.

The Great Satan is based on the very real concept that Iraq did have a secret weapon of mass destruction, which disappeared during Saddam's overthrow in 2003. The weapon - a small but viable atomic bomb - goes missing in Iraq before eventually turning up in London and threatening the very existence of the city. The hero of the book, Pat Farrell is, like David Black, a part-time SAS soldier and part-time London taxi driver.

David Black said: "I left the regular army after three years because I wanted to get back to a normal life. But while I was doing The Knowledge I quickly became bored with a mundane civilian life and joined the Reserve SAS for some new action and adventure. I loved it as a part-time Special Forces soldier and part-time London taxi driver. It was an existence filled with incredible adventure and perfect inspiration for my Shadow Squadron Series."

As well, David has also written a number of historical adventures including:'EAGLES OF THE DAMNED'

'It was late autumn in the year AD 9. The long hot summer campaigning season was nearly over. Centurion Rufus and his battle-hardened century were just a tiny part of three mighty Legions, returning to the safety of their winter quarters beside the River Rhine. Like their commanding General, the veteran Centurion and his men suspected nothing...

Little did they know, but the entire province was about to explode around them.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good reed......(not a typo) 16 April 2014
By JohnC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Shadow Squadron 2 is a good follow up to Mr Blacks first Shadow Squadron book. If you see my review of book 1 you will see that it's a great story let down my a heavy level of spelling and grammatical errors. This book 2 is a lot better but still has a number of similar errors, although somewhat amusing, eg Pat Farrell apparently took on the IRA in New Zealand, well in Northern Island according to the book; also, the Oz pilot must be strapped for cash as the Skyvan was being flown by instalments! In all, look beyond this, it's a good read and bring on Shadow Squadron 3 Mr B

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Instalment 30 Oct. 2013
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This second instalment of the Shadow Squadron series was a little disappointing. It was still as well written as the first of theseries, but a wee bit formulaic, with no real surprises in the storyline.

Still, I'm loking forwad to the next title in the series - hopefully more like the first title, than the second.
