Peru, 2005. The towering mountains and deep, forested valleys of La Convención Province provide sanctuary for a dangerous criminal organisation with sufficient military capability to challenge government forces. An elite unit of British SAS are tasked to implement a solution. Their ground-breaking new equipment offers a decisive advantage and enables an unorthodox covert approach, but its untested nature also brings complications. Soon the British team find themselves ensnared in a web of corruption and conflicting interest, where the only way forward is to elevate the crisis to a chaotic conclusion.
The Jackdaw Detail weaves between political, tactical and financial motives, as soldiers and civilians alike are drawn into an ever-thickening plot.
