High summer in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
Two young soldiers, Milo and Zac, are on a mission which could really make their names. Their special duties team is to ambush and capture a notorious Taliban leader.
The operation has been meticulously planned and set up. But suddenly - all is chaos.
The hunters are now the hunted. To reach safety they must make their way through fifty kilometres of hostile territory, with a Taliban captive and a young, frightened woman in tow. Perilous at every turn, the journey is the biggest test any of them has ever faced, and it will change their lives forever.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A triumph of storytelling. The first great novel of the Afghan war. - Major Chris Hunter, author of Extreme Risk

Read it and enjoy a novel of great subtlety and insight; one that explores the age-old themes of loyalty, humanity and forgiveness, and that you finish feeling strangely optimistic about the future. - Saul David

Impressively authentic. The author knows his subject, British infantry soldiers and their fight in Helmand, very well and his instinctive understanding of the military should satisfy even those harshest of critics, the very men and women who have served in Afghanistan - Evening Standard

Crisp, action-packed tale set in Afghanistan . . . the material is so powerful that [Bishop] fashions it into a compelling novel. - Mail on Sunday

FOLLOW ME HOME does the details and the heroics well. It is a good, easy read and impressively authentic . . . Insofar as any book about a troubling, complex, bloody, contemporary conflict can be entertaining, this one is . . . It is a ripping yarn in which the swash and buckle of old has been replaced with the crack and thump of sniper rifle. - Scotsman

One of the most honest and evocative stories to come out of the war in Afghanistan. Authored by the acclaimed front line war reporter, this tale plays with ideas of love against a haunting backdrop of terror. - Oxford Today

Read it and enjoy a novel of great subtlety and insight; one that explores the age-old themes of loyalty, humanity and forgiveness, and that you finish feeling strangely optimistic about the future. - Country Life

The first great novel of the Afghan war - Sun

The pared-down simplicity of Bishop's narrative is made even more effective by details conjured from his own experience as a foreign reporter in war zones. - The Sunday Times

a compelling variant on the theme of soldiers trapped in enemy territory and striving to get home... The pared down simplicity of Bishop's narrative is made even more effective by details conjured from his own experience as a foreign reporter in war zones. - The Sunday Times

Bishop's first-hand experience of Afghanistan as a foreign correspondent lends authenticity to a tightly constructed wartime tale of friendship and heroism. - Sunday Telegraph
