Overview

In the midst of the political uncertainty of 1990s Northern Ireland, men at arms on both sides of the conflict are willing to kill to suit their ends, and a British Army helicopter crew find themselves used as pawns in the most deadly game of all... Fast-paced and full of gripping detail 'HMG' is a striking example of military fiction done right, giving a window into the military action thrillers and suspense of aviators' lives in the prelude to the first IRA ceasefire in 1994.
Nick Shaw and his crew are used to covert ops - they've seen action and adventure all over the world, most recently in Bosnia, where they carried out another successful mission and captured an enemy general. But now the British Army has another mission for them, this time in a military action against two senior members of the IRA.
When the operation goes wrong and with members of his crew killed and wounded, Shaw finds himself needing a break from the action and adventure of his Army career. When another officer is murdered, however, he finds himself thrust into a covert world of action thrillers and suspense, framed for a crime he did not commit and hunted by men at arms willing to pay anything for the price of peace. With time running out, Shaw must discover the real motive behind the crime, and it's not just his life on the line...
A stunning new piece of military fiction, 'HMG' draws you in to a world of danger, conspiracies, action and adventure.

About the Author

Robert G Brook grew up in the Caribbean as one of the last 'Commonwealth Kids', the son of British parents who had just decided to move out there to live. Schooled in England, he left Southampton University in 1990 all set to lead a Naval career but fell in with a what he describes as his 'band of lunatics' and was commissioned into the Army Air Corps after completing his training at Sandhurst, just in time to watch the first Gulf War end.
As was custom in those days, he then completed a six month tour in Northern Ireland with an infantry battalion in Armagh, just as this conflict was reaching its climax. Returning to Middle Wallop in early 1991, he completed his flying training and was offered the opportunity to convert immediately to the Army Mark VII Lynx aircraft, which he then flew for the rest of his Army Career. Completing two flying tours, one back in Northern Ireland and another in Bosnia, he then resigned his commission in 1996 to pursue a commercial career.
Writing began originally as a hobby until early in 2014 he took the plunge and committed to it full time. HMG is his first novel and he is soon to finish his second. A life-long fan of the greats - Forsythe, Clancy, Seymour - he tries to emulate their genre but through his own style.
Robert lives with his family in the South West of England, messing around on small boats whenever his schedule allows him.
