The fantastic debut military fiction novel from a real-life military hero Dan Coldrain is a former elite Royal Marine Commando haunted by the death of his best friend Reese, killed in action by enemy forces. Coldrain used to believe in honor, service, and the call of duty, but haunted by Reese's death, he drops out of service and instead seeks the lucrative pay checks on the private military contractor's circuit. Soon the Sandman lurks into view, a shadowy figure with connections to the political underworld and a proposal for Coldrain: find a man called Dogan—a terrorist responsible for a slew of lethal explosive attacks in both Iraq and Afghanistan, detain him, and hand him over to the Sandman. For this simple task Coldrain will be granted a four-man team; access to high-grade weapons, explosives, and vehicles; and a cool £1 million per head once the mission is completed. And so the hunt begins, with the contractors dragged through hell and back in search of their deadly suspect. Will Coldrain and his team complete their mission successfully? And, most importantly, will Coldrain battle the demons which so haunt him over his friend’s death?
