Using ex-SAS men, this is a vividly detailed recreation of a typical close protection mission. A four man SAS team is assigned to protect an uncooperative British minister on a foreign state visit. At first the team's meticulous planning pays off, but they are overruled on security by local forces. When the Minister and foreign leaders are kidnapped and held hostage, the team must don their 'Black Kit' and launch a rescue mission. On the mission Eddie Stone is joined by John McAleese, MM, a real life veteran of the Iranian Embassy assault team and a man with over twenty years of experience of providing close protection services to both the British PM and members of Royalty. Together they reveal both the secrets of successful close protection and the SAS techniques for hostage rescue.
