Eight Lives Down Reviews


"A ticking bomb of a book; breathtakingly tense, fast-paced and incredibly moving. The best war memoir I've read in years" -- Andy McNab
"You might expect an account of disabling bombs to be repetitive or overly technical, but Hunter's is neither. Each incident is fascinatingly different and edge-of-the-seat dramatic, and Hunter recounts them with vividness and clarity" * Daily Mail *
"Thoughtful, gripping and engaging... The emotion, the immediacy, the adrenalin rush of what it feels like to walk towards a device that may or may not blow at any minute taking you and everyone in the proximity with it packs an authentic punch" -- Kate Mosse * The Times *
"Chris Hunter is a very brave man. His work couldn't be more terrifying or necessary" * Daily Mirror *
"Action-packed... A breathtaking story of courage and survival" * News of the World *
