About the Author
A 19-year veteran of the UK's Secret Intelligence Service (known by its media name, MI6). The Ministry of Defence stipulates that all current and select former British intelligence officers of his security clearance level cannot be seen in public. In the few book-signings and television interviews he has granted he has donned a black balaclava to circumvent this legal restriction. In 2002-2007 he was recalled to active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is now retired and resides in the French Riviera where he continues to write his fictionalized covert action stories based on true life experiences. To go down the non-fiction route would invite more legal restrictions so it is recommended that readers read between the lines to the best of their ability.

he was in every covert action over three decades plus being a long term deep cover operative (cough cough).
Also many facts are wrong - subtle things like equipment and geography but significant enough.
But the environment is authentically represented and most events map on to real situations.
Most annoying is the amateur philosophy and spruiking soviet (who needs rigorous testing) medical 'science'.
But when 'Anderson' sticks to black ops stuff its fun though towards the end the scent of Munchausen is a little overwhelming.
Maybe it should have been two books with some professional editing and fact checking.
Still some parts were interesting enough to make me read a little further and query some more knowledgeable folks.
Good at half the length.
I have read Navy SEAL books (No easy day, lone survivor, The red circle, American Sniper)... I've read John Le Carré (The Spy Who came in from the cold, Tinker Tailor, A most wanted man)... I've read books on generals,(The Operators, David Patraeus by Gericke)... I've read books on Delta (Kill Bin Laden, inside delta force)... All these books are amazing but to me NOC is a book that's in a genre of its own. As I got close to the end I started saving chapters like fine wine!
All the other negative reviews on here are BS. I went against the grain and purchased it and just bought NOC TWICE his second book.
