Book Description

The deaths of four British soldiers, two of them ex SAS, appear at first to be accidental. In fact, they have been targeted by a group of hired assassins, known as the Clinic. This group of contract killers is systematically tracking down elite servicemen and killing them one by one... Desperate to stop the murders, a group of four men, the Feather Men, are recruited to hunt down the Clinic and avenge the soldiers' deaths. But will they get to them in time and what's driving the Clinic's own brutal form of justice? Ranulph Fiennes, himself a former SAS officer, uses his unique knowledge to craft this amazing thriller, now a major film, featuring Robert De Niro, Jason Statham and Clive Owen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Killer Elite 3 Feb. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Originally entitled 'The Feather Men', they are a group of people dedicated to protecting ex-army/SAS colleagues. Another group, hired assassins called the Clinic, are slowly but surely taking out a succession of heroic soldiers who all have a common link. Based on Sir Ranulph's own time in the SAS and subsequent service in Oman, this gripping story is packed with realistic detail and local colour. And with a completely unexpected twist at the end it leaves one deeply impressed with Sir Ranulph's story-telling ability. Another feather in his incredible cap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Astounding book 14 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A good read which starts in similar fashion to many of Ranulph's other non-fiction titles.
The opening leaves a questioning doubt over the stories origins. Is it fiction or non-fiction? Not having conclusively got an answer prior to picking up this book, it finishes with a first person account in the final part, one is left feeling little doubt that this is a non-fiction title.
In short good book from an inspiring author, which I recommend a read before the movie comes out. Surely hollywood cannot do this justice?

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Book 20 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a re-release of the epic book "The Feather Men" under a new title. I don't know why but the original isn't in print any more. I haven't seen the film "Killer Elite" but from reading the reviews it only seems to have a passing resemblance to the book.

Any way, the book is a fine read and Ranulf Fiennes includes a lot of fine detail that only somebody who has "read the book, ate the pie" would know. It is a classic tale of revenge with a good twist at the end that makes you wonder whether it is fiction or real.

Hats off for an enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Feather Men 30 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I originally read this book when titled 'The Feather Men'. An amazing read and should be read by anyone that is interested in the SAS and clandestine operations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Morally dubious 4 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this an interesting and exciting read but highly dubious about the authors claims regarding its supposed authenticity. Fiennes goes to great efforts to suggest that much of the material is fact and unclear as to what is actually fiction within the story. He is certainly not the only author to do this but this does not justified the potential for his book to do harm. I was left feeling extremely sorry for the families of the characters portrayed in the book. They lost their loved one and had had their grief compounded by embellished tales (although many call Fiennes description downright lies) as to the circumstances of their death.
I think this would be easily addressed by Fiennes making a more frank disclosure in future editions. The book is mostly fiction and should be sold as such. I very much doubt the duplicity adds to sales and may address some of the moral qualms that discourage people like me from purchasing other titles of his.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a book that grabs the reader. 22 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Book is okay but is easily put down, the sort of book that you can dip in and out of and not be concerned about losing the plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feather Men 7 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very entertaining book, exceptionally well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Ranulph Fiennes delivers such an exciting tale that one can't quite believe it's all real, despite the denials of the authorities!
