Masters of War

In Paris, an elderly man is assassinated as he takes his morning walk. In the war-torn cities of Syria, government forces wage a bloody war against their own people.

Publisher's Summary

In Paris, an elderly man is assassinated as he takes his morning walk. In the war-torn cities of Syria, government forces wage a bloody war against their own people. The Russians are propping up the government, the French are backing one rebel fraction and the British are backing another. And in north Africa, young SAS trooper Jamie Truman is coming to the end of a gruelling tour of duty, or so he thinks.

Jamie has a new mission. An MI6 agent needs to make contact with Syrian rebel forces, and also with the private military contractors who are - unofficially - training this rebel faction as it struggles to bring down their government and establish a new regime that will be favourable to British business interests. As they travel deep into rebel heartland, Jamie will learn who the masters of war, the men who call the shots, really are. As Jamie finds himself sucked into the murky orbit of the private military, he discovers a world where death is dispensed by the highest bidder and individuals will betray anybody if the price is right. And where a secret lurks that will change the course of Jamie's own life, however long that might last...

    Story
    "I thought I'd hate Chris Ryan.."

    There was no logic to my preconception and ultimately proved wrong. Like the book, lots of action, easy to listen to despite the readers characterisation which I personally didn't need.

    Good distracting stuff that made cleaning out the garage a pleasurable task.

    "The Best So Far"
    Where does Masters of War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a book that will keep you from turning it off. The storyline is terrific and the first suspense of the story keeps you glued to the book throughout


    What other book might you compare Masters of War to, and why?

    One does not come to mind however, And McNabb comes closest to the scenarios.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Today's truthful threat to society


    Any additional comments?

    Found this to be one of the most captivating books to listen too recently.

    Story
    "A good Chris Ryan book not for the faint hearted"

    A good story and plot. The war crimes and choice of victims are quite disturbing and I'm sure the aim of it is to be a lot more shocking then the usual bullet to the brain descriptions you typically find. All in all it was good.
