Chris Ryan is a former member of the Special Air Service. He is the bestselling author of seventy fiction and non-fiction books including the Geordie Sharp series, Alpha Force, the Danny Black series and The One That Got Away, which details his experience on E&E (Escape & Evasion) during the 1991 Gulf War.

He’s also hosted popular TV shows including Hunting Chris Ryan, Terror Alert: Could You Survive, How Not to Die, and Armed and Dangerous.
