Overview

In the bitterly divisive aftermath of the Iraq War, the former political leaders of the UK and USA are condemned as deceitful and mendacious, allegedly fabricating excuses for their martial actions. In The Great Satan, the first of his compelling new Shadow Squadron series, author David Black takes their rationale to its logical conclusion to produce his own fictional nightmare scenario: What if the Iraqi weapons that were said to be dismantled in the late 1990s included the ultimate WMD? And what if the deposing of Saddam Hussein left one of his most ruthless military leaders at large, actively seeking a customer for what he has hidden? . . .

In The Great Satan, Black and his main character – Special Forces teamleader Pat Farrell – are so close as to be synonymous, both having worked as London taxi drivers during a tenure as territorial SAS members, ready to be called into action in time of national emergency. The principal difference is that the author is now retired from the forces, while his
fictional counterpart is left to contend with “the real world . . . with direct
relevance to the grisly global horrors being perpetrated today.”

COMING SOON! - The thrilling sequel to The Great Satan - Shadow Squadron #2 - DARK EMPIRE -
