It is a long, hot summer and the country is suffering an epidemic of road rage.

What isn't making the news headlines, though, is that the SAS's secret assassination squad, the Increment, is killing ex-soldiers.

These two strands of violence become ever more tightly intertwined as ex-SAS man Matt Browning is drawn into an adventure that takes him to Russia and ends explosively in the UK.

Thing are about to get messy...
