Summary

John Carr has recently left the SAS, after a long and distinguished career, and is now working for a Russian oligarch in the murky world of private security. 
But an incident from his past - in which three terrorists were brutally killed - suddenly comes back to haunt him. 
Tracked by a hit man out for revenge, John Carr is forced to step over the line to defend himself and his family. It's a cruel and violent world - and one he thought he'd left behind. 
But some wars never end. 
Patriot Games meets Taken in Once a Pilgrim. John Carr shows all the Reacher-esque hallmarks of a cold-blooded antihero doing what needs to be done, whatever the consequences. 
James Deegan MC is a fantastic new voice in the thriller genre, writing with unprecedented authority and authenticity. 
Including an exclusive interview with the author.

Critic reviews

"As close as it gets to the real thing." (Mark 'Billy' Billingham, MBE, former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS: Who Dares Wins)
"Authentic detail and heart stopping narrative grips you from the outset bringing the shadowy world of today's special forces bursting in to life in a way that other authors of the genre couldn't hope for. The best thriller I've read in years." (Major Chris Hunter, QGM, author of Eight Lives Down and Extreme Risk)
"Exposes the raw with the reality. This is a gripping high intensity drama." (Bob Shepherd, ex SAS Warrant Officer and best-selling author)

Believable ex-SAS tale

Thoroughly entertaining book slightly spoiled by the story reader's lack of military knowledge, e.g. "Twenty one C" for "2i/c" and "arms cachet" for " arms cache", etc. However, not his fault, the author or his agent should have proof-read/!istened before release. Nit-picking aside, I look forward to his next book, hopefully more "mad John Carr ".

I don’t say this lightly but the best book I’ve read!

What an outstanding book! Totally submersible in how it’s written and narrated. Brilliant lead character and the supporting characters are just as good.

Good book, great narration

Deegan's book is good, though the plot is quite conventional. Manning's narration is truly excellent!
