Praise for The Infidel
"The Infidel is an intelligent can't-put-it-down adventure story written by an author who knows the heart and guts of NATO's war in Afghanistan. If you want to know what we're up against, read this book." — Karl Marlantes, Author, Matterhorn
"Shepherd's boots on the ground experience exposes the raw and rugged beauty of Afghanistan and its people. His high intensity narrative is as bone jarring as it is gripping and provides valuable insight in to this complex country." — Nic Robertson, Sr. International Correspondent, CNN
"An old Afghan hand, Bob's fingertips drip with the detail readers devour – from weapons and tactics to people and places. However, his knowledge is bang up to date and his insight into the political and social effects of military campaigns rival any Newsnight commentator. More than that, Bob's a great soldier who's also a great storyteller. His characters are believable, his plot is epic in scale and his style blends muscle with understanding. This book is as comfortable on a shelf beside Kipling, Conan Doyle and Conrad as it is beside Lee Child." —Stephen Armstrong, Sunday Times journalist
WHERE ARMIES FALL TWO MEN WILL RISE...
When Islamic militants infiltrate an Afghan counter-narcotics program, disaster is averted thanks to Special Forces veterans John Patterson and Dusty Miller. But when fallout from the affair threatens to topple NATO's fragile Afghan alliance, John and Dusty suddenly find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
Alone and on the run, one place on earth holds the key to their innocence—Nuristan, a remote Afghan province and notorious terrorist haven. But their journey to freedom will thrust them deeper into the Afghan conflict than they ever imagined. Battling hostile terrain and Islamic fighters, John and Dusty emerge the unlikely champions of an ancient community torn apart by al-Qaeda and western forces.
From ex-SAS soldier and bestselling author of The Circuit Bob Shepherd comes a modern day Afghan war epic inspired by Rudyard Kipling's The Man Who Would Be King.
