Publisher's Summary

What if your prank killed your best friend? Could you live with yourself? You try to forget and move on; you enrol in Army training, you want to make something of your life. The training is tough and it almost breaks you. But you survive; you know you’ll make a good soldier. Finally, when you’re out in Afghanistan, under enemy fire, you come face-to-face with your best friend’s brother. He still blames you for his brother’s death. You now have more to fear than just enemy soldiers.

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE. NOT FOR YOUNGER LISTENERS.

A matter of life and death

The beginning dragged a little for me but once training was over, oh, my, word! What an adrenaline filled race to the end!
You watch these things on film and the heroes come home, but this is reality and not everyone comes home. And those who do, will never be the same again.
I could not put it down I the end and desperately wanted to know what happens when the pressure and danger kept mounting. When this you must trust are not trustworthy, what is left?
I am glad I persevered through training, it was worth it!
The narrator was adequate. He would not have been my first choice but succeeded in presenting the tension buildup.

Great narration - typical Andy McNab story :)

What did you like most about The New Recruit?

Andy McNab's attention to detail makes the story believable.

What did you like best about this story?

The narration really brought the characters to life - good fun.

What does Jack Hawkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The hardness of the characters shines through thanks to Jack Hawkins

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

Dangers surrounds you from all sides in the deserts of Afghanistan
