More About the Author

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years there he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team.

During the Gulf War, Chris Ryan was the only member of an eight-man unit to escape from Iraq, where three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal.

For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. He wrote about his experiences in the bestseller The One That Got Away, which was adapted for screen, and since then has written three other works of non-fiction, fourteen bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books.

His latest series of novels - the Extreme books take you even further into the heart of the mission with more extreme action, more extreme language and more extreme pace. Like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, you'll feel part of the team.

He lectures in business motivation and security, and is a consultant for a security organisation. You can find out more information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ChrisRyanBooks. You can also follow Chris on Twitter @exSASChrisRyan

Format: Hardcover
This book was much better than the last several Chris Ryan novels. I stopped reading a while back because I got tired of the trite, simplistic, and juvenile writing and plots. But The Kill Zone turned out to be a complex, violent, gritty, realistic thriller about terrorism and drug trafficking, with detailed descriptions of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Somalia, and an unexpected ending that leaves room for a potential sequel. I definitely enjoyed this book a lot more than the new Frederick Forsyth and Gerald Seymour novels released this year. I hope Chris Ryan will write more books like this one.

Format: Paperback
This book was an epic page turner! I couldn't put this book down even to go to sleep at night. After each chapter I just wanted more; to know what was going to happen next and how the story was going to develop. This book not only engulfed my imagination but it also entranced me and kept my attention through out. A must read by all standards!

Format: Hardcover
It's too easy to be dismissive of Chris Ryan's pumped-up action adventures. The action sequences here in The Kill Zone are joined together with a bunch of military acronyms, crude army-speak narrative ("everyone knew that word spread around this place like s- on a blanket"), stock phrases ("everyone realised that a war like this was won or lost on the ground"), and clichéd macho dialogue ("There are two kinds of luck, Jack - the luck you get and the luck you make yourself"), but it makes no claims to be great literature. When it comes to developing an exciting storyline that is packed with incident, tension, war heroics and sneering evil foreign villains, Ryan delivers. A former SAS member himself, commander of a sniper team of an anti-terrorist unit, involved in overt and covert operations, there's also no denying that Ryan writes from an authoritative position, accurately describing the world he knows, but able at the same time to spin it into a thrilling yarn.

That's certainly the case with his latest novel The Kill Zone, the story taking in operations in the Stan (that's Afghanistan for you civilians out there) of larger-than-life SAS Captain Jack Harker, as well as work of former Det surveillance officer Siobhan Byrne, an undercover operative in Belfast, where, despite the Peace Process, the ex-paramilitaries continue their involvement in organised crime. And what links the two operations? The drug trade evidently, but also another kind of trade, one that Harker and Byrne's missing daughter Lily appears to be caught up in, a nasty business that takes them to one of the most dangerous places on the face of the Earth - Somalia.

Format: Audio Download
It should be noted that the audio CD version that I have is abridged, and read by Rupert Degas. Degas does a good job as narrator, making it clear who is talking at any given time.

The plot is interesting, and takes in Afghanistan, Somalia, Belfast and London. It's fairly complex, with several threads that come together in a surprising finish. The abridging was well done, but I suspect the full-length version is better, given the relative complexity of the plot.

There were a couple of points that bothered me. The main character is Captain Jack Harker, who it is said has been in the SAS for "more than twenty years". However, officers in the SAS do three year terms before moving on to another regiment. The other points relate to Stinger anti-aircraft missiles. The Taliban capture three of these from a patrol in Afghanistan, but I do have to wonder why a patrol was carrying them, since I've not heard of the Taliban using helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. Also, the Stingers that are fired in the book all hit their target, and I find it difficult to believe that they have a 100% hit rate. These points probably won't bother many people, but they detracted somewhat from my enjoyment of the story.

In my opinion this is Chris Ryan's best.

More twists and turns than an elephant on ice skates.

Read it.

That is all.
