The British Military Quartet is a collection of four thrillers by Mike Lunnon-Wood. They are:

Book 1: LET NOT THE DEEP

Only the skill, determination and raw courage of a lifeboat crew and the British military forces despatched to save them offer any hope of survival. But set against the savagery of the Atlantic even that might not be enough…

Book 2: KING’S SHILLING

As a powerful insurgent army closes on Liberia’s capital, London is forced to act, and HMS Beaufort is despatched to West Africa to pull British nationals from the teeth of encroaching danger. But when the volatile situation ashore unravels, the frigate’s crew must draw deep on reserves of skill, ingenuity and sheer bloody mindedness to save it. And with time running out Beaufort’s Captain makes the decision to take his ship up river…

Book 3: LONG REACH

When Belize is invaded by a powerful neighbour it’s Britain that must spring to the defence of this old outpost of empire. But intervening in distant Central America will test the limits of the former colonial power. And in the end the outcome will turn on the skill, boldness and heart-bursting bravery of handful of British forces already in country…

When a group of missionaries get caught up in bloody African civil war London is forced to act. For the men of 40 Commando, Royal Marines, it should be a quick in and out. A nice clean operation. But what awaits them will test them like never before. And, facing overwhelming odds, this time the skill and raw courage of these legendary fighting men may not be enough…
