The true story of my first tragic expedition to the former USSR in 1993.

Jagged Red LineThe Soviet Union collapsed. I threw myself into its chaos for the sake of adventure and survived a nightmare beyond my imagination. This was a story I could not tell, but keeping it secret paralysed me. For 19 years the events of one long summer haunted my waking hours, while the horror nagged at my subconscious. Slowly, I came round to the idea that writing it down might be the only way out…

Jagged Red Line is set in the former USSR in 1993. A British student with a passion for climbing meets like-minded locals. They plan an expedition, not caring that the infrastructure is broken and there are rumours of war – the steep north faces of the Caucasus are calling. The trip is everything it was promised to be until someone makes a mistake. Suddenly, life will never be the same again. Read the first two pages now
