For them, there are no rules, only results. Bombs, rockets, grenades, ambushes, booby traps - death by any means necessary. Welcome to the real Wild West.But for Chris Hunter, just when life couldn't get any more dangerous, the stakes are raised again. Halfway through his tour, he is told: 'They want you dead, Chris.

Review quote

"Will do for Saddam Hussein and George W. Bush what McNab did for Saddam and George Senior" Evening Standard "[Hunter] writes grippingly, honestly, thoughtfully and above all simply ... Julian Rhind-Tutt does the adrenalin buzz bit brilliantly" Guardian "A gripping account of the life of a bomb disposal expert who served in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. You listen to him recount one incident and think he must have been insane to go back for more. But he did - again and again and again. Gripping stuff - and Julian Rhind-Tutt captures Hunter's voice perfectly." Express
