Product Description

Review

'a cracking read ... The bangy shooty bits are as good as it gets ... I look forward to Big Phil's next book' ARRSE.

'Andy McNab's Nick Stone, Chris Ryan's Geordie Sharp and Duncan Falconer's Stratton have a new rival in Phil Campion's Steve Range' Irish World.

Product Description

Sultan Gadaffi has escaped from Libya with a fistful of dangerous secrets. The British Government want ex-Special Forces operative Steve Range, the go-to man for any Black-Ops missions, to lead an ultra-covert mercenary group to seize him from his near-impregnable desert stronghold.

Saed is defended by Tuareg warriors armed to the teeth with stolen NATO hardware. If Range's team can somehow overcome them, then they will earn themselves gold bullion worth $500 million.

But as the bullets begin to fly and the body count rises, Range realises that he's been double-crossed. Unwilling to lose the gold, he begins to contemplate cutting a deal with the devil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn good 12 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not really a reader of fiction based books, but because the Author, Phil Campion, recently wrote a brilliant nonfiction book, Born Fearless, I thought I would give it a go.

I thought I'd try to read the book as a non-fiction book so I could review and rate it authentically as a fiction book. I was very impressed with the book.

I found most of the book gripping, and humorous, which made me want to read on. I found battle and operation similarities from the best of other Elite Forces books I have read in this book. Attention to detail on weapons and equipment is spot on and not too much in your face all the time.

I reckon the Author has played the main character based on himself, and it may be true that the other characters have existed on real life operations in the `elite forces' and on `the circuit'. This book for me could be a very true story with most parts as real as it gets.

So I would recommend this book. In fact I'm now hoping Phil Campion now follows up a series with the remaining characters and more with keeping it as real as possible. I'm also hoping that Phil Campion and Damien Lewis bring out another awesome non-fiction book together

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting Story 4 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Written by someone who has been there and it conveys a feeling of great authenticity. That said I did feel that it became overly technical and wrapped up in procedure.

However a worthwhile read and I hope that there may be other stories to come

5.0 out of 5 stars Military fiction fan? Read it! 29 April 2014
By JohnC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This a good story with enough twists and turns and plenty of technical detail. Phil's background shows through and adds depth to the action; it also makes you wonder how much he has drawn on real situations and adapted them for use in the book. Recommended.
