The gripping, breathtaking, new military thriller from the ex-SAS author of ONCE A PILGRIM
James Deegan MC spent five years in the Parachute Regiment, and seventeen years in the SAS. He served for most of that time in a Sabre Squadron, from Trooper to Squadron Sergeant Major, and saw almost continuous service on operations in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. He fought in both Gulf Wars, and was on both occasions amongst the first Coalition soldiers to cross the border into Iraq. Twice decorated for gallantry he was described by his commanding officer as 'one of the most operationally-experienced SAS men of his era'.
Praise for The Angry Sea:
'He ploughs the same furrow as Chris Ryan and Andy McNab and is easily their story-telling equal' Daily Express
'James Deegan ensconces himself in the first rank of action thriller writers.' The Times
'Packed with authentic detail about the defence and intelligence communities, it rattles along at a furious pace, never takings its foot off the accelerator. A terrific story splendidly told' Daily Mail
'**** . . . [A] top actioner]' Weekend Sport
'[Deegan] knows how to tell an unnervingly realistic story - and The Angry Sea is involving from the start and gripping to the end' Choice
'Deegan, a twice-decorated SAS veteran, makes Carr an entirely credible three-dimensional hero, with earthy wit and appetites' Daily Express
'Edinburgh-born Joshua Manning is very well equipped to deliver, as adapt at Geordie and Scots profanities as he is at hoarse Chechen and sibilant Arabic.' The Times
Praise for James Deegan:
'You couldn't make it up. Brilliant' Jeffrey Archer
'Inevitably Deegan will be compared to Andy McNab and Chris
Ryan, but he adds his own brand of contemporary authenticity. Carr
is a hero for our times.'
'As close as it gets to the real thing'
Mark 'Billy' Billingham MBE . Former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS Who Dares Wins
'James Deegan writes with masterful authority and unsurpassed experience as he transports the reader deep into the troubles of Northern Ireland - and then brings them back up to date with a dramatic bang' Chantelle Taylor, Combat Medic and author of Battleworn
'authentic detail and heart stopping narrative grips you from
the outset bringing the shadowy world of today's special forces
bursting in to life in a way that other authors of the genre
couldn't hope for....the best thriller I've read in years'
Major Chris Hunter QGM - Author of Eight Lives Down and Extreme Risk
