THE SECRET HUNTERS is another absorbing thriller by Ranulph Fiennes, the man the Guinness Book of Records called the 'world's greatest living explorer'. Canada's North West Territories: the arrival of a plane bound for the military's top secret Alert Base is to change Derek Jacobs' life forever. Consumed by hatred, he is unable to restrain himself from attacking one of the engineers. Who is the engineer and what part did he play in the violent death of Jacobs' mother in Nazi Germany? Jacobs joins the Secret Hunters but can this elite group bring justice to the victims of genocide?
Sir Ranulph Fiennes was the first man to reach both poles by surface travel and the first to cross the Antarctic Continent unsupported. Fiennes has led over 30 expeditions including the first polar circumnavigation of the Earth, and in 2003 he ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents in aid of the British Heart Foundation. In 1993 he was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for 'human endeavour and charitable services' because, on the way to breaking records, he has raised over GBP14 million for charity. He was named Best Sportsman in the 2007 ITV Great Briton Awards. In 2008 he became the oldest Briton to reach the summit of Everest.
