Unless Gardner helps, Bald is a dead man. What begins as a simple rescue mission soon descends into a desperate struggle for survival as Gardner finds himself caught up in a conceit that stretches from the slums of Brazil to the frozen steppes of Siberia. Stalked by elusive MI6 agents and ruthless ex-Blades, Gardner must draw on all his training and instincts to hunt down the hardest target of all - before disaster strikes...The Chris Ryan Extreme books take you even further into the heart of the mission with more extreme action, more extreme language and more extreme pace.

Launching a new series of thrillers from number one bestselling author Chris Ryan

'This high octane tale certainly packs a punch.' -- News of the World

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years there he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris Ryan was the only member of an eight-man unit to escape from Iraq, where three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal. For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. He wrote about his experiences in the bestseller The One That Got Away, which was adapted for screen and since then has written three other works of non-fiction, fourteen bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books. He lectures in business motivation and security, and is a consultant for a security organisation.
