I need another category / pile - for goodness sake hurry up and read these books!

From the Blurb:

Danny 'Badger' Baxter has a talent for surveillance.

But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Republicans in muddy Ulster fields, or Islamic extremists on rainswept Yorkshire moors.

MI6 have a plan to assassinate the Engineer - a brilliant maker of Improvised Explosive Devices, the roadside bombs which account for 80% of British casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The spooks know he is planning to leave his home in Iran.  They just need to find out when and where he is travelling.

So Badger finds himself on the wrong side of the Iranian border, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying under a merciless sun in a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house.

And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.

But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Republicans in muddy Ulster fields or Islamic extremists on rainswept Yorkshire moors.

I.E.D.: Improvised Explosive Devices are the roadside bombs which account for 80% of British casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

MI6 have a plan to assassinate the leading maker of these weapons when he leaves his house in Iran to visit Europe. But first, they need to know when he is leaving, and where he is going.

So it is that Badger finds himself on the wrong side of the Iranian border, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying under a merciless sun in a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.
