'The Night Manager meets Narcos' Saul David

'To catch this criminal took incredible courage and skill. This is James Bond meets Jason Bourne' Bear Grylls

The new bestseller from the author of Zero Six Bravo

By 2007 Viktor Bout had become the world's foremost arms dealer. Known as the 'Merchant of Death' he was both "Public Enemy No. 1" to the global intelligence agencies and a ruthless criminal worth around six billion dollars.

For years Bout had eluded capture, meanwhile building up a labyrinthine network of airlines selling weapons to order to dictators, rebels, despots and terror groups worldwide. He was hunted by the CIA, NSA, MI6, as well sought by the United Nations for being their top global sanctions buster. Holed up in Moscow - from where he ran a suite of offices selling anything from AK47s to state-of-the-art helicopter gunships and anti-aircraft missiles - he was shielded by a Russian state that was a partner in his dark dealings. In short, Bout appeared utterly invulnerable and beyond any hope of capture.

Step forward former SAS man Mike Snow. After serving in the Regiment, Snow had worked as a bush pilot in Africa, where he'd got to know Bout well. Via its own secretive, shadow network, Snow was approached by the US DEA, the Drugs Enforcement Agency. The DEA agents had one question for him: was Snow able to get to Viktor Bout?

This is the incredible tale of OPERATION RELENTLESS, the top-secret mission that Snow and a handful of DEA operatives launched to entrap Viktor Bout - a story that ranges from the steamy jungles of Colombia to the ice-bound streets of Moscow, and from horrific bloodshed and tyranny in the Congo, to a snatch operation like no other. It may read like an implausible thriller, but every word of Operation Relentless is true.

    Great read, gripping and intense. Well written had me saying to myself just one more chapter. Definitely would recommend to a friend.

  • By Neil A. on 18 July 2017

    A good read but sometimes seeming a little long winded and drawn out. Damien Lewis has better books to read.

    Damien Lewis strikes again, very engaging read throughout.

    A writer who doesn't disappoint if you are looking for a holiday read you can't go far wrong with this. A change from his normal fare it delves into the shady world of international arms dealers and the cat and mouse chase to bring a shadowy Russian to justice. A Bourne type story that is fast paced go and get a copy before you head away
