Ethan Blake is seventeen and desperate to escape from his dead-end life. When he sees someone B.A.S.E. jump from the top of his block of flats, it changes the way he sees the world for ever. Soon, Ethan is caught up in the adrenaline-fuelled world of skydiving. He's a natural, so it's no surprise when he's invited to join an elite skydive team, but is he signing up for more than just jumping out of planes? The team's involved in covert military operations - missions that require a special kind of guts, missions so secret even MI5 denies all knowledge.show more

About Andy McNab

Andy McNab was a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS. He wrote about his experiences in two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero, which was filmed starring Sean Bean, and Immediate Action. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK.show more

Back cover copy

The guy leaped from the roof of the block of flats. Racing towards the hard concrete street that would surely kill him. Getting bigger...closer...faster... Then with seconds to spare, the parachute opened. Insane. Everything changed the day Ethan Blake saw that guy B.A.S.E. jump. Now 17-year-old Ethan is part of the same elite skydiving team. But there's more going on than meets the eye. The team is involved in dangerous covert operations. In a life-or-death situation - does Ethan have what it takes? Extreme action from SAS Covert Ops Commander Andy McNab. 'McNab has another hit on his hands, this tale is a cracker. Buy it for a teenager today.' Sunshow more
