Duncan Falconer is the pseudonym of a former member of Britain’s elite Special Boat Service and 14 Int., Northern Irelands top secret SAS undercover detachment. His first book, the bestseller 'First Into Action', documented the real-life exploits of the SBS.
After more than a decade of operational service he left the SBS and went into the private security circuit. In the last few years Falconer has operated at length and often alone in places such as Afghanistan, the Nigerian Delta, and Palestine, Liberia and throughout Iraq, sometimes writing his novels while bullets shower the compound he is staying in.
