  • The Break Line delivers a full-throttle exercise in tension

  • The Break Line is a distillation of a quarter of a century of travel with a camera in one and and a notebook in the other. Set in Sierra Leone, it sees Special Forces veteran Mac McLean on a mission that is non-routine even by his own black ops standards . . . It's so twisty and multilayered it would be easy to imagine it as a computer game.

  • The Break Line punches you in the stomach on the first page and then plunges you into the most extraordinary and exciting world of covert operations that I have ever read . I have worked in those places and covered those wars... Brabazon's novel gets it exactly right. With a terrifyingly precise eye and an irresistible prose style, he has creates a world that is almost impossible to leave. I finished the book three days ago and feel like I'm still waiting for the choppers to come take me home...
