When Johnny Vince’s counter-terror mission goes wrong, he fights for survival in the desert heat, but his real problems have only just begun…In the blistering heat of Afghanistan, Johnny Vince battles to survive after a mission to eradicate a new breed of terrorists, L-khaba-a, has gone wrong. Fleeing from the scene of a disaster, he becomes separated from his squad, not knowing if any have survived. He has to use all his strength and Special Forces training just to stay alive and evade the fury of terrorists and crazed factions. Emotions, morals and his survival skills are tested as the hunters close in. But it’s only when he makes it to safety that he realises just how badly he has been betrayed. A line has been crossed; good men have fallen and the enemy must be punished.


Richard Joyce has long been interested in the British Military. What started as a hobby – collecting signed military books – inspired him to research and write his own book set in Afghanistan.

He has supported military charities for a number of years, and has written this book to raise funds for the Forces Children’s Trust which is devoted to helping children with a parent killed or who has sustained life-threatening injuries whilst serving as a member of the British Forces. He lives in the UK with his wife and children.
