Alex Shaw

Best price for this book: $ 0

SAS trooper Aidan Snow is in charge of training a new Polish unit when he is called to lead the barely-trained men into an operation to foil a bank robbery.

Disaster strikes when the criminals blow the convoy to hell, and Snow is left fighting for his life in a car’s wreckage.

A green-eyed soldier stands over him and watches what he believes are Snow’s last breaths; but he doesn’t pull the trigger.

Ten years on and Snow is teaching in Ukraine, keeping a low profile.

But events will force Snow into a life-or-death chase.

The green-eyed man, Taurus Pashinski – also known as the Bull – is employed by old military contacts to help smuggle arms and drugs over the border of Ukraine.

A young, vengeful ex-soldier is drawn into the Bull’s plot when he persuades him that two British investors are his older brother’s killers.

The murders will spark a manhunt in Britain and a series of dramatic events in Ukraine which will drag Snow and his friends into deeper and deeper trouble.

With crooked intelligence officers, ambitious businessmen and bloodthirsty ex-military, Ukraine rapidly becomes a killing zone.

Has Aidan Snow still got what it takes to come out of retirement and face the Bull?

What is the Bull really after, and what will he do to get it?

Will the ex-SAS soldier be able to defeat his old nemesis before he destroys everything Snow holds dear?

Cold Blood is the gripping prequel to Cold Black, an international and contemporary thriller.

SAS-Soldat Aidan Snow ist gerade dabei, eine neue Einheit polnischer Rekruten zu trainieren, als man ihn und seine kaum ausgebildeten Männer aussendet, einen Bankraub zu vereiteln. Dabei geschieht das Unfassliche – der Militärkonvoi wird aufgerieben, und Snow kämpft in einem der brennenden Wracks um sein Leben.

Über ihm steht ein grünäugiger Soldat und beobachtet Snows vermeintlich letzte Atemzüge. Doch er erschießt ihn nicht.

Zehn Jahre später. Snow lehrt in der Ukraine und versucht, nicht weiter aufzufallen.
Doch das Schicksal hat andere Pläne mit ihm.
Der grünäugige Soldat, Taurus Pashinski alias der Bulle, wurde unterdessen von seinen alten Armeekontakten angeworben, Waffen und Drogen über die Grenze in die Ukraine zu schmuggeln. Dort bekommt er Hinweise, nach denen zwei britische Investoren angeblich für den Tod seiner Brüder verantwortlich sein sollen. Es beginnt eine Menschenjagd quer durch England und eine Reihe dramatischer Ereignisse in der Ukraine, die auch Snow und seine Freunde immer tiefer in einen Strudel aus Geheimdienstaffären, Geschäftemachern und blutdürstigen Ex-Militärs ziehen.
