9780099522348: One Good Turn (Quick Reads)

1917, Western Front, Ypres

A soldier wakes up in a damp, dark basement. He can't get out. He is covered in mud.His skin is badly burned. And he can't remember anything. But his nightmare doesn't end there.

He is tried and found guilty of cowardice, impersonating a fellow soldier and theft. He can barely speak, let alone defend himself. As the verdict is passed and he learns that the death sentence awaits him, he remembers two things: that he took something from a dead man in the trenches, and that the name his accusers have been calling him is not his.

With time slipping away, Chris Ransom must try to remember the events that have led him to this moment, so that he can clear his name and save himself.

About the Author:

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years in the service he took part in many dangerous missions, some of them in secret. He was also Sniper Team Commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq - three colleagues were killed and four captured. This was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS and, as a result, Chris was awarded the Military Medal.
