Devil to Pay




The blistering debut novel from the UK's most renowned TV journalist

John Keen vowed he would never go back.

His platoon torn apart and killed by a Taliban ambush, his best friend slaughtered, all because of military mistake, made Keen swear never to fight for Queen and Country ever again.

While he struggles to adapt to life on Civvy Street, his vow is tested when the beautiful fiance of his best friend begs him to return to Afghanistan to recover his body.

Despite the danger, and the pleas of his teenage daughter, Keen agrees to return. Back to the place that haunts his dreams. Back to the brutal country where he was forced to watch his men die. In search of a friend he thought of as a brother.

This time he’s going alone.

Yet not everything is what it seems. Keen’s bloody journey becomes a quest into the impenetrable heart of a war ravaged nation and a brutal, thrilling struggle for the truth.
