Gun for Hire: Inside the Secret World of Britain's Bodyguards

Steve Devereux was one of the SAS's most effective operatives, having experienced the killing fields of the Falklands, Mozambique and Northern Ireland.

This is the true story of his strangest assignment yet. Hired to prevent a bloody hit on the streets of London, he finds himself up against men who will stop at nothing to penetrate the most experienced Close Protection Team money could buy.

But he could not have anticipated that he would become embroiled in a web of frantic deception and intrigue, where danger is only a squeeze of the trigger away.


“Fast paced, pulsing with authenticity, Devereux has a hyper-macho and gripping narrative voice. Unputdownable.”


“Well written and informative… interesting insight.”

Martha Brindley - Reviewer
