Publisher's Summary

When a group of missionaries get caught up in bloody African civil war, London is forced to act. For the men of 40 Commando, Royal Marines, it should be a quick in and out. A nice clean operation. But what awaits them will test them like never before. And, facing overwhelming odds, this time the skill and raw courage of these legendary fighting men may not be enough....

Thrilling Story

An interesting and thrilling story read well. The excitement and action stayed with the reader until almost the end, when a more sensitive approach to a personal storyline took place. I thoroughly enjoyed Congo Blue, and will certainly buy more books written by the author.

Outstanding!

Anyone with military experience will relish the technical excellence and the beautifully woven narrative around likeable characters. Great listen, and only sorry when it ended as so engrossing and poignant
Investigating M L-W other books, and can only suggest that it is a shame that he died before he could write more

Good but not as good as other books in quartet.

although this isn't the first book in the quartet it reads more like it. it's enjoyable and full of action but I didn't feel the same sense of emotion connection that I got from the other 3 books in the series.

Fast Paced and Brilliant

The author Knows his subject. His knowledge of weaponry and tactics is impressive. Once started, I could not put this book down. I'll certainly read his other novels.

Gripping, believeable tale of daring do

Compulsive story telling that made me angry, laugh and cry. As ever Royal is left to sort it with with what they can carry. Why - because they were there; them only them.

A Modern Classic

This is a gritty and realistic story with convincing characters and situations. The author has a real feeling for the motivations and attitudes of soldiers and portrays them with sympathy. The various threads of the story are well handled and come together nicely at the end. One word of warning for those who are not keen on strong language - there's plenty of it, but not applied gratuitously as the author uses it as soldiers do and not just for effect. If you want an insight into the workings of a military operation, then this is the book for you.

Another brilliant book

The attention to detail and the way that the author has written this book had me looking online to find out more about it. I knew it was fiction but it was just a really complete story, how could it not be true! Masterful
