Seven Skins - two words scrawled above a hit list. Six names - targets for assassination by bomb, bullet or blade. Three killers - two vicious professionals and an idealistic young terrorist. Two Security Service officers - confused and at each other’s throats. One lost girl - abused and on the run. And Jackie Shaw - outnumbered, disavowed and ready to tear an entire city apart. When a series of apparently random assassinations hit London, MI5 and GCHQ deduce that the killers are working through a hit list of retired security forces operatives and that their next target is an ex-police officer from Belfast now living rough in the capital. Desperate to find the officer before he too is eliminated, the Security Services coerce Jackie Shaw, a man steeped in the violent history of Northern Ireland, into working for them. While the three killers stalk their next victim, Jackie trawls the city’s underbelly in search of their target as he tries to protect a girl desperate to escape a gang of brutal traffickers. Leaving a trail of bullet casings and bodies, Jackie and the girl find themselves alone and on the run, fighting not just to uncover what or who the Seven Skins are but to save their own lives. 1.

A harrowing account of Afghanistan´s notorious Pul-e-Charkhi prison, written by its longest-serving Western inmate. Former soldier Rob Langdon was working as a security contractor in Afghanistan when he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death in a case that would have been ruled a clear miscarriage of justice in the British legal system. His sentence was commuted to 20 years in jail, and he served his time in Kabul´s most notorious prison, Pul-e-Charkhi, described as the world´s worst place to be a Westerner. Rob was there for seven years, the longest sentence served by a Westerner since the fall of the Taliban, and every one of those 2,500 days was an act of extraordinary survival in a jail filled with Afghanistan´s most dangerous extremists and murderers. In 2016 Robert was pardoned and returned to Australia. In this highly anticipated audiobook, he talks about his experiences for the first time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Farnell.
