Jericho's War by Gerald Seymour (February 2017)

Jericho's War by Gerald Seymour (February 2017)Corrie Rankin is already a legend at MI6 when he is recalled, with little regard for the horrors of his recent past, and sent to the Yemeni desert.  There is a chance to take down a high value player in the war against Al-Qaeda - a chance, also, for the Brits to succeed without begging help from the Americans.

The sniper and his spotter who will go with Corrie are less than 'top team', but the best that can be found if the mission is to stay deniable.

And once the three misfits are in-country, they must rely on intelligence brought to them by a British Jihadi who has been 'turned' and a young archaeologist digging in the ruins nearby.

The mission is the brain-child of an apparently old, fat fool in a striped cricket blazer, a sweating figure of fun among the ex-pat community across the border in Muscat.  This is Jericho - not actually as old or fat or foolish as he appears, nor as harmless.

And this is Jericho's War.  The weapons it deploys, the brutal aims it pursures, are state of the art.  The fear it breeds and the raw bravery it demands are as timeless as the desert itself.
