Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Gerald Seymour is a master thriller writer, most famous for Harry’s Game, whose classic books are being reissued to excite a new generation. Set in the Russian Afghan war and first published in 1984, it is fascinating to see Afghanistan at the height of the Cold War thirty years later. Very much exploring themes of honour and duty between a British SAS captain who’s dropped in to scupper a Soviet helicopter, the local Mujahadeen resistance whose assistance he’ll need to succeed and the Soviet soldiers they’re fighting. A tense and gripping classic Cold War thriller.

If you like Gerald Seymour you might also like to read books by John Stock, Daniel Silva and Sam Bourne.

Synopsis

In Honour Bound by Gerald Seymour

Barney Crispin, a Captain in the SAS, is as tough as they come. He is sent on an urgent mission to the Afghanistan border: to destroy one of the Soviet Mi-24 helicopters, a highly sophisticated and virtually invulnerable piece of military equipment, and retrieve the hardware. In order to do so, he needs the help of the Mujahidin resistance and must first train them in the ways of stealth and sabotage. But the guerillas he trains are ill-equipped and disorganised. Their attempt fails and several of them are killed in the process. Against orders and with only eight missiles and a local boy as his guide, Barney decides to undertake the mission alone, his own solitary battle for vengeance...
