The Corporal's Wife
But the Corporal won’t talk unless they bring his wife out of Iran too.
So the SAS are asked to find the woman and smuggle her out of Tehran – but they turn it down as an impossible risk.
Which is how three former soldiers hired from a London agency and Zach Bennett, a university drop-out recruited for his Persian language skills, find themselves about to cross the world’s most dangerous frontier on a mission that will mean certain death if they are caught.
And the Corporal’s wife is not the kind of person they expected to find. In fact, the fiery, independent, beautiful Farideh is not like anyone Zach Bennett has ever met in his life.
This is an epic, nail-biting story of courage and betrayal, a brilliant glimpse into a closed society and the way the secret services operate on both sides of the line between politics and morality.
