Once A Pilgrim A Breathtaking, Pulse-Pounding SAS Thriller

by James Deegan

Part of the John Carr Series

Once A Pilgrim A Breathtaking, Pulse-Pounding SAS Thriller Synopsis

`You couldn't make it up. Brilliant.' Jeffrey Archer `Decades of war has given James Deegan a natural ability to create a world that is incredibly realistic and exciting. This takes military fiction to a whole new level entirely. Deegan is a master' Tom Marcus Mi5 Survellance officer, Author of Capture or Kill `Move over Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, there's a new SAS veteran writing thrillers and he's good. Very good.' Stephen Leather John Carr has recently left the SAS, after a long and distinguished career, and is now working for a Russian oligarch in the murky world of private security. But an incident from his past - in which three terrorists were brutally killed - suddenly comes back to haunt him. Tracked by a hitman out for revenge, John Carr is forced to step over the line to defend himself and his family. It's a cruel and violent world - and one he thought he'd left behind. But some wars never end. Patriot Games meets Taken: In Once A Pilgrim, John Carr shows all the Reacher-esque hallmarks of a cold-blooded antihero doing what needs to be done, whatever the consequences. JAMES DEEGAN MC is a fantastic new voice in the thriller genre, writing with unprecedented authority and authenticity. `Carr is a hero for our times' Daily Mail

Once A Pilgrim A Breathtaking, Pulse-Pounding SAS Thriller Press Reviews

`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.' Daily Mail `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 write 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. Uncertain times require certain people, and ex-SAS operator John Carr fits that bill. A tough, enigmatic man from the shadows, he is brought to life in this fast-paced, easy-reading thriller, and is bound to end up on screen. The character detail is credible but not clinical, and ONCE A PILGRIM will undoubtedly introduce James Deegan and John Carr as forces to be reckoned with.' 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 `exposes the raw with the reality. This is a gripping high intensity drama' Bob Shepherd, ex SAS Warrant Officer and bestselling author `Move over Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, there's a new SAS veteran writing thrillers and he's good. Very good.' Stephen Leather 'An impressive debut, that rates up there with Gerald Seymour and Fredrick Forsyth; blending a realistic vernacular of special forces soldiering to make a cracking read with page turning pace from start to finish.' Stuart Tootal
