The Infidel Now Available on Kindle & Nook USA!

I’m pleased to announce that The Infidel is now availabe for download on Kindle and Nook USA for the introductory price of only US$2.99  A modern-day Afghan war epic inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale The Man Who Would Be King, The Infidel was influenced by my work as a security advisor to media and diplomats in Kabul, Kunar, and Nuristan Provinces, Afghanisan.  My goal: create a cracking good page turner that would reveal the true nature of one of the deadliest conflicts of our time.

I am able to offer a substantial discount to readers in North America because I have published The Infidel myself in those territories and eliminated the premium associated with going through a traditional publishing house.  You can only take advantage of this special offer if you hold an Amazon or B&N account in North America or change your Kindle country settings to these territories.  Otherwise, you can purchase the ebook through Kindle UK, iBooks UK, and Waterstones UK.   And of course, the paperback is available to order through and other UK and Commonwealth retailers.

Praise for The Infidel…

“The Infidel is an intelligent can’t-put-it-down adventure story written by an author who knows the heart and guts of NATO’s war in Afghanistan. If you want to know what we’re up against, read this book.”  — Karl Marlantes, Author, Matterhorn

“Shepherd’s boots on the ground experience exposes the raw and rugged beauty of Afghanistan and its people. His high intensity narrative is as bone jarring as it is gripping and provides valuable insight in to this complex country.”  — Nic Robertson, Sr. International Correspondent, CNN

“An old Afghan hand, Bob’s fingertips drip with the detail readers devour – from weapons and tactics to people and places. However, his knowledge is bang up to date and his insight into the political and social effects of military campaigns rival any Newsnight commentator.

More than that, Bob’s a great soldier who’s also a great storyteller. His characters are believable, his plot is epic in scale and his style blends muscle with understanding. This book is as comfortable on a shelf beside Kipling, Conan Doyle and Conrad as it is beside McNab, Ryan or Lee Child.”

—Stephen Armstrong, Sunday Times journalist

  1. Hi Bob,

    I have read all your books and immensley enjoyed reading each one.

    Your latest book via Amazon says pricing information not available.

    Hopefully Amazon fix the listing their end asap so anyone using a kindle reader can purchase your latest book.



    1. Sorry George,

      Please see my comment to bushcraftercz, hopefully this will help.

      Thanks also for your comments reference the books, much appreciated.
      Take care and all the very best.

    1. Dear Bushcraftercz,

      I’m sorry you’re having problems with the link. The problem could be that and Barnes & Noble only sell to customers in North America or to customers who have accounts linked to those territories.

      If you have a N. American address, you can change your Kindle Country by following the directions below. Otherwise you’ll have to order through an outlet outside the USA and Canada. Sadly, I do not set the book price outside North America. My original publisher, Simon & Schuster UK Ltd does. The reason I’m able to offer a better price to readers in the USA and Canada is because I self-published The Infidel in those territories.

      Let me know how you get on and I apologize for not making this clear in my orignal post. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and I will update this post to try and avoid any confusion in future.

  2. Hi Bob, thanks for fast and informative response. I am either in Afghanistan or EU, so no North American address… never mind, I´ll order a hard copy over some friends with APO when deployed. Take care and thanks again!
