The Field of Blackbirds
Former SAS soldier Jeff Bradley thought he had left warzones behind when he resigned from the military for life on a vineyard in rural New Zealand. When his winery manager, Arben Shala, goes missing on a trip to Kosovo, Bradley promises Arben’s family he will find him and bring him home. On his arrival, in the former Serbian province, Bradley discovers the UN-controlled protectorate is a lawless state in the grip of criminal gangs and corrupt officials. With the help of USAID director Morgan Delaney, Bradley and Delaney learn Arben’s disappearance is linked to a plot to bomb the major cities of Europe. Now Bradley and Delaney must survive assassins sent to end their hunt for Arben’s captors and the bombers.
