Strike Back

A war hero. A broken veteran. A lethal crisis.

The action-packed, no-holds-barred novel from bestselling author, Chris Ryan

Colonel Peregrine Collinson was involved in the same raid. He was awarded a Military Cross and is heralded as a hero.

After the raid, their lives couldn't have been further apart. Until now. A hostage crisis in the Middle East draws them back together for the first time in decades, but both men have secrets they've kept all this time - which might be dragged into the light...
