What happens if an SAS Sergeant is tasked to assassinate the British Prime Minister?
SAS Sergeant Geordie Sharp, locked in a desperate private battle with the IRA, is required to undertake two top-secret missions, in the full knowledge that, if they go wrong, the authorities will deny all involvement.
In the first operation he serves as commander of a hit team on a 100 per cent non-attributable task assigned to the Regiment's ultra-secret Subversive Action Wing. The target is an Iraqi who defected to Libya after the Gulf War.
Returning to base, Sharp finds he must also carry out a high-level political assassination in mainland Britain. If he fails, his four-year-old son will die . . .
