Description

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.

About Andy McNab

From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.

As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. 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.

Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's best-selling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children.

Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers. He continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.

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.' Sun
