A non-stop action thriller in the vein of Jack Reacher and the television series, 24, from bestselling author, Iain Rob Wright. First book in the Major Crime Unit series is now free.
Nowhere is safe from evil…

When a quaint town in the United Kingdom is stuck by a suicide bomber, a once proud nation is brought to its knees. Yet this first attack is just the beginning of something much greater and far worse. Something that nobody could have predicted.

The days to follow will determine if the UK has a future, or if it will be reduced to anarchy and ashes.

Only one person stands between the people of the UK and their complete destruction. Too bad it’s an angry, damaged ex-solider named Sarah Stone. Sarah despises her country for what it did to her, and that’s what makes it so hard when she is forced to save it.

SOFT TARGET is the first in a series of books featuring strong heroine Captain Sarah Stone and the Major Crimes Unit. It is a non-stop action thriller in the same style of Jack Reacher, Tom Clancy, and 24.

"Iain Rob Wright blows me away." J A Konrath, author of the Jack Daniels books.

Customer Reviews

A terrific suspenseful tale about the British war on terror. Mind-bending characters and events propel this fast paced story.

By Sleepless in San Diego
This suspenseful story from Horror master Ian Rob Wright is well written and fast-paced. The story of agents protecting Great Britain from terrorists is timely and thought provoking.The material is horrorfying with respect to the nature of the threats and extent of the evil plots. While shocking and unpredictable, the attempt to destroy the British way of life in the age of terrorism is painfully real.

Fantastic Book, Horrible Editing

Before getting into the (really) good parts of the book, I must comment that the editing was just atrocious. This is easily the worst editing I’ve ever seen in a book with hundreds of errors ranging from omitted words, incorrect words, typos, space between letters (especially contractions), two words stuck together and more. I found it incredibly frustrating to read for this reason, which is a shame since the book is so good. In fact it is easily a 5 star book for content, but a 1 star book for editing. Ordinarily I would have averaged the two and given the book a 3 star rating, but that would be a disservice to readers who might look at a 3 star review and skip this fantastic book. It’s worth reading despite the numerous errors.

high praise to iain rob wright!! this fan wants more!!

As one of my favorite authors in different genres this book meets my expectations above and beyond what I was expecting in a thriller. For any fans looking for more, or someone new looking for genuine horror that sneaks up on you and suprise you to know end, give soft target a glance. You’ll be hooked! I know I’m am! 🙂

God Save The Queen

Sweet, sweet revenge. It started in Afghanistan and lessons learned carried over to help the protagonist get over her self pity in time to not only help the monarchy but also get revenge for what happened years earlier in Afghanistan. This book sure leaves you with a warm fuzzy! Another great story from Mr. Wright.

A New Genre Proves Wright Can Write More Than Just Horror/Post Apocalyptic World Novels and Do it Well!

A fast paced secret agency military organisation fighting terrorism in the UK action novel. Different to the Ian Rob Wright horror, post apocalyptic world norm, which may not be what some fans want, but I always like seeing a dominant writer of one genre prove they can write in others. Soft Target like other books in the government secret agent genre isn’t the most realistic novel in the world, but I think when you read that genre you know that going in. Sarah Stone is initially not that likeable a character, but once you’ve turned enough pages and got to know her, including a few flashback scenes to how she became the disfigured angry woman she is today, she grows on you. Plenty of far fetched action scenes including car chases, jumping out of helicopters, gun battles, a secret underground base (with the cool name of The Worm), villains and terrorists keep you turning the pages until the end.

Non stop thrill ride

I am a big fan of this author. Always have been and this book is excellent. Some minor flaws but nothing to interfere with the story. This book grips and doesn’t let go. I can’t wait to see what he does with our heroine in the second book. I mean he basically beat her to death in the first book but she is tough. Hard to put down. Thanks for making me lose sleep Iain. I mean I literally couldn’t put this book down!

When small towns in the UK become terrorist targets, the country is on the verge of being brought to its knees. The only thing standing between the government and total collapse is former soldier Sarah Stone. The problem is that, Stone has been so badly treated after her military service, she hates the government.

Action Packed!

This is a great action novel!! I loved the characters, the dialogue, the action…fantastic. I can’t wait to read more in this series. Hopefully there will be more after the second book. As other reviewers have noted however is the poor editing, primarily misplaced spacing. I’ve contacted the author about this so hopefully it can be re-released corrected. Having said that, the book itself is just too good not to give it its due of 5 stars.

Good read

I wasn’t for sure if I wanted to read this book by Iain but am glad I did. I was immediately hooked on Sarah Stones character. She’s a real badass with a haunting past she can’t let go of till she has a second chance to confront the ones responsible for so much heartache in her life.
