Paths of Courage


The North Koreans have created a lethal super virus… Terrorists have hijacked a Russian nuclear submarine… Together, they are planning an attack that could have deadly consequences…

Using their spy networks in Seoul and Moscow, British Intelligence establish that the North Koreans are manufacturing a lethal super virus. They also learn of a planned attack on a major western city, to be carried out by terrorists using a hijacked Russian nuclear submarine. Are these two strands of intelligence linked?

MI6 send a small team of specialists into North Korea with orders to verify if a virus does exist. Led by Frank Ryder, an ex-SAS operative, who is accompanied by Dr. Grace Seymour, an army virologist, the team search the remote central highlands to find the manufacturing facility.

Meanwhile, the British Navy’s ‘state-of-the-art’ nuclear submarine, HMS Ambush, is ordered to find and destroy the hijacked Russian submarine. The crew must endure weeks of cat-and-mouse searching, but will they succeed in finding the rogue submarine before a missile and its deadly warhead are unleashed towards an unsuspecting city?

Paths of Courage brings together the unusual combination of a British clandestine military operation into North Korea and associated submarine warfare. Reflecting today’s modern world, it is a brutally realistic, gripping read for anyone interested in espionage, particularly those with a penchant for the ‘man against all odds’ scenario.

I am normally a Martina Cole, Catherine Cookson reader, and always thought books about espionage, spy's and SAS covert operations were more for men, but after reading Paths of Courage I have changed my view, I loved this book right from the beginning, I couldn't put it down, I just wanted to know what was happening on the next page. What I also loved about it was how Mike had given in-depth information on the nuclear submarines, the locations of the villages etc in North Korea mentioned in the book, It made you actually feel as though you could see all this as you were reading the book. Well done Mike Woodhams, cant wait for the follow up.
