Summary

When ex-SAS soldier Michael Purdy comes in front of the judge for hacking the bank account belonging to the Minister for Invalidity Benefits and wiping out his personal wealth, he braces himself for a prison sentence. 

What Michael doesn’t expect is to be put in charge of a group of offenders and sent to a remote location in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Spain to teach them survival skills as part of their rehabilitation programme. 

But Michael knows nothing at all about survival skills. He was sort of in the SAS, yes, but his shining record on the 'Escape and Evasion' courses was more a testament to his computer skills than his ability to catch wildlife and barbecue it over an impromptu fire. Basically, he was the SAS’s techy nerd and only achieved that position as a result of a bet with a fellow hacker. 

Facing a stark choice between starvation and returning home to serve out their sentences, the group of offenders under Michael’s supervision soon realise that the only way to survive is to use their own unique set of skills - the kind of skills that got them arrested in the first place.

Enjoyable caper in Andalusia

I really enjoy Luddingtons books (although I wasn't so keen on the hippy one). They are fun, light-hearted, humours romps. Well worth it if you fancy some easy listening.

Good once you get to the end

Interesting story. A bit slow. Not hilariously funny but amusing. I actually think this would be better to read than to listen to somehow. Narrator good and excellent at different character voices so easy to listen to and know who everyone is without too much concentration

very entertaining

Really enjoyed this story. Great characters, different sort of story plot, would strongly recommend. I will be looking for the next one in the series.
