From the Author
In my first book 'The Nemesis File', my story was taken down by a ghost writer. Consequently, some statements are incorrect and I shall be writing about these mis-quotes and downright lies in fact, in my next book 'Nemesis Continued', which is part of a trilogy. This will be just as controversial, if not MORE so. I shall be writing about events that I never got around to in the first book and I will also be adding some horrific tales from soldiers, from all around the world, who wrote to me, in empathy, after reading 'The Nemesis File'.
My next book, 'Nemesis Continued', will be finished very soon, so look out for it, or even better still....Order it upfront. (To let you into a secret, my life has been turned around from the most awful nightmare, to one of optimism and great happiness. Read all about it! Also this book will help the families and wives/partners of the soldiers who have come out after fighting for their country, only to find they are totally inept at being a civilian, to the degree that they can not fit in with their own friends or loved ones!) Paul Bruce.

After reading the first couple of chapters it became apparent that this could not have been a factual account. To anyone who has spent time in the armed forces, you have my sympathy. Anyone who writes anything as appallingly inaccurate as this should be ashamed. Even as a work of fiction it is exceptionally poor at best.
Steer well clear of this rubbish, there are far better books written by accomplished armed forces personnel.
The following is a copy of an investigation into the claims by the author that his story is truthful. It was reported, as can be seen, and verified by personally checking, that the man wasn't ever anywhere near being a member of the SAS. I'm putting this here for consideration by people who may be tempted to purchase this book believing it to be history, and not fiction...
A flurry of activity. On Thursday (01/08/96) Paul Bruce, the author of The Nemesis File was detained at 5:45am at his home in Weston-super-Mare, by officers of the RUC. A copy of his manuscript containing a new chapter, which the publisher claimed would substantiate his claims, was also seized. The Nemesis File was a best selling book billed as a true story of an SAS squad that had executed about 30 men in Northern Ireland, of which Bruce had claimed to be a member. Defence sources had always ridiculed the claims, and even Sinn Fein described them as "totally outlandish". Paul Bruce was flown to Northern Ireland and questioned by the RUC under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, and a day of claims and statements followed. On Friday (02/08/96) the RUC issued a statement. The book was a "work of fiction". Paul Inman, who used the pen name Paul Bruce, had never worked for the SAS. The closest he had got was working for several months in Ulster as a army vehicle mechanic. The RUC confirmed that he could now face a charge of wasting Police time. A senior SAS source said "We are delighted this man has been exposed as the phoney we always said he was." Reported in The Telegraph 01/08/96 and 02/08/96.
Hopefully, all will take note and treat this book with an entire mine of salt, and not just a pinch!
