SAS legend and 5 million copy bestselling author Chris Ryan, introduces Joe Bowman, the ex-SAS hero battling opioid addiction and his own inner demons. Following a botched operation in Afghanistan, Bowman is recruited into ‘The Cell’, a covert unit within the SAS working alongside the police – a unit so secretive most of the other guys in the Regiment don’t even know it exists.
Chris Ryan joined the SAS at 22 and was part of the SAS eight-man team chosen for the famous Bravo Two Zero mission during the 1991 Gulf War. He was the only member of the unit to escape from Iraq, where three of his colleagues were killed and four captured, for which he was awarded the Military Medal. Chris wrote about this in The One That Got Away, which became an immediate bestseller. Since then he has written over fifty books and presented a number of very successful TV programmes.
Chris will be in conversation with author Matt Johnson.
