More About the Author

Duncan Falconer is a former member of Britain's elite Special Boat Service and 14 Int., Northern Ireland's top-secret SAS undercover detachment. His first book, the bestseller First Into Action, documented the real-life exploits of the SBS.

After more than a decade of operational service he left the SBS and went into the private security circuit. In the past few years, Falconer has operated at length and often alone in places such as Afghanistan, the Nigerian Delta, Palestine, Liberia and throughout Iraq, sometimes writing his books while bullets shower the compound he is staying in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic. A real ride!!! 27 July 2007
I don't understand why the other reviewers were so harsh on this book. Perhaps it's because they have never been to Baghdad. I have, several times, and I found the book to be very realistic and exciting. Falconer describes it as it really is - believe me. I've even been to the Palestine hotel and I know the attack he describes really took place. 'Zeddy's' review was unfair and way over the top - but then I checked his review status and he's ranked 300,000th so I suppose no one really takes his seriously. Bottom line is, if you want to get a real taste of Baghdad, as it really is (or was actually a couple years ago - it's changed more since), read this book. The plot is nail-biting, the scenes chillingly accurate, and altogether a real ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have reading 1 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have become a huge fan of Duncan Falconer, My favorite author was Peter James, but after reading Falconers books there is no doubt the author has tremendous qualities in "keeping you hooked and in suspense". The attention to detail is brilliant, without being over the top or boring. Falconer delivers every time, so much so you want to finish one book and go on to the next!!!
John Stratton is the "man" featured in Falconers "undersea Prison" "The Operative" and "Hijack" amongst others, If you like books that are action packed, with suspense, and twists and turns, and are about true life issues which our guys in Afghanistan and Iraq are coming to terms with, Falconer is your author.
Brilliant Author Sensational reading!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 20 Aug 2007
Different from the other Falconer's because there are several main characters, and therefore a little slower to start, but it's an excellent read and is definitely worth reading. It desserves a sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars The protector 17 Jan 2014
By dave e
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having purchased all of mr falconers books and really enjoyed them. Now reached the last one (the protector) and find it very disappointing , it's as if someone else wrote it. Very slow and did not grip me as the others did, in fact so bad I give up on it after about 2 chapters even skipped ahead and it was no better. Not recommend .

5.0 out of 5 stars Three stories in one 29 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a great way to inter weave what starts as very separate stories. Duncan Falconer has again shown a great talent in writing thrilling stories that don't travel the usual well worn path, but at the same time delivering a dependable read to keep his fans happy. Great read to escape to. Highly recommend it.
