About The Book

After single-handedly intervening in a deadly terrorist attack in Mali, SAS Warrant Officer Jamie ‘Geordie’ Carter is denounced as a lone wolf by jealous superiors.
Now a Regiment outcast, Carter is given a second chance with a deniable mission: locate SAS hero-gone-rogue, David Vann.
Vann had been sent into Afghanistan to train local rebels to fight the Taliban. But he’s since gone silent and expected attacks on key targets have not happened.
Tracking Vann through Afghanistan and Tajikistan, Carter not only discovers the rogue soldier’s involvement in a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the Middle East – but an imminent attack that will have deadly consequences the world over . . .


My Thoughts

Who doesn’t love a good thriller with interesting characters?
SAS Officer Jamie ‘Geordie’ Carter is not very much appreciated by his bosses; but they give him a second chance to search for his old mentor. Will he be able to control his temper and do his job as best as possible? Or will the new mission be a failure? Also, you can imagine that the new “job” will not be an easy task but full of twists and surprises. Ready?
I love from time to time to read a book packed with action and no time to think, just asking by impulses! But I have to say that there’s a little bit of mystery too in the story; what happened to the mysterious Vann and why the governments seem to be involved with it…
I have to say that Geordie was quite a surprise, even if he loves to unfollow orders, he has principles and is ready to find the truth even if not everyone is ready for it.
If you are looking for a great book to disconnect from your routine and have your heart beating at a high rate, you have to read “Outcast”, you’ll love it. Ready?
