From the internationally bestselling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words “I was told that my father was killed in the war.” A dock worker in Bristol, Harry never knew his father, but he learns about life on the docks from his uncle, who expects Harry to join him at the shipyard once he’s left school. But then an unexpected gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys’ school, and his life will never be the same again. As he enters into adulthood, Harry finally learns how his father really died, but the awful truth only leads him to question, was he even his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who spent his whole life on the docks, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line?

When the US Federal Witness Protection Program fails to protect a star witness, a tough female former prosecutor risks her life to get answers in international bestselling author Campbell Armstrong’s high-stakes thriller
Reuben Galindez’s testimony helped put away brutal arms smuggler Ángel Sanchez, and he thought the trial would be the last time he’d ever have to deal with Sanchez again. Of course Sanchez’s organization was looking for him, but Galindez wasn’t alone, he had the US government, the FBI, and the Witness Protection Program to keep him safe.
When Galindez’s body is found floating face-down in the river, riddled with bullets, former state prosecutor Amanda Scholes, who believed she’d put Sanchez in jail forever, is determined to find out what went wrong. Did the witness reveal his identity and leave the program? Did someone from inside Sanchez’s organization track down Galindez? Or is his death the result of something far more insidious? Has someone managed to infiltrate the fortresslike security surrounding the program in order to exact revenge?

From the abortive plan to murder Hitler, the Iranian Embassy siege in London and the dramatic scud hunt in the Gulf War, to the storming of a hijacked airliner in Marseilles in 1994, this book reports on the covert actions of the world`s most elite special forces from World War II to the present. Although it focuses principally on Britain`s SAS, the USA`s Delta Force, Seals, Green Berets and Rangers, Germany`s GS9, France`s GIGN and the Australian SAS, the book also covers less well-known organizations, including Britain`s SBS, Spain`s GEO and BOEL and France`s 2REP. Moving between Europe, the USA, South-East Asia, Central America and the Middle East, it gives a wide-ranging account of the origins, development and major undercover operations of special forces, with a detailed examination of their selection procedures and training, weaponry, communications and tactics.
