Editorial Reviews

'As close as it gets to the real thing'Mark 'Billy' Billingham MBE . Former SAS Warrant Officer and star of TV's SAS Who Dares Wins'James Deegan write with masterful authority and unsurpassed experience as he transports the reader deep into the troubles of Northern Ireland - and then brings them back up to date with a dramatic bang. Uncertain times require certain people, and ex-SAS operator John Carr fits that bill. A tough, enigmatic man from the shadows, he is brought to life in this fast-paced, easy-reading thriller, and is bound to end up on screen. The character detail is credible but not clinical, and ONCE A PILGRIM will undoubtedly introduce James Deegan and John Carr as forces to be reckoned with.'Chantelle Taylor, Combat Medic and author of Battleworn'authentic detail and heart stopping narrative grips you from the outset bringing the shadowy world of today's special forces bursting in to life in a way that other authors of the genre couldn't hope for..the best thriller I've read in years'Major Chris Hunter QGM - Author of Eight Lives Down and Extreme Risk'exposes the raw with the reality. This is a gripping high intensity drama'Bob Shepherd, ex SAS Warrant Officer and bestselling author'Move over Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, there's a new SAS veteran writing thrillers and he's good. Very good.'Stephen Leather'An impressive debut, that rates up there with Gerald Seymour and Fredrick Forsyth; blending a realistic vernacular of special forces soldiering to make a cracking read with page turning pace from start to finish.'Stuart Tootal'We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready to visit violence in the night on those who would do us (and Carr) harm: John Carr is the morally ambiguous anti-hero for today.'General Chip Chapman
