John Carr has recently left the SAS, after a long and distinguished career, and is now working for a Russian oligarch in the murky world of private security.
But an incident from his past – in which three terrorists were brutally killed – suddenly comes back to haunt him.
Tracked by a hitman out for revenge, John Carr is forced to step over the line to defend himself and his family. It’s a cruel and violent world – and one he thought he’d left behind.
But some wars never end.
Patriot Games meets Taken: In Once A Pilgrim, John Carr shows all the Reacher-esque hallmarks of a cold-blooded antihero doing what needs to be done, whatever the consequences.
JAMES DEEGAN MC is a fantastic new voice in the thriller genre, writing with unprecedented authority and authenticity having spent five years in the Parachute Regiment, and seventeen years in the SAS.
