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

‘Literary and Literal Cliffhanger. From the beginning you know that something dreadful is going to happen… The real skill of this book is that Nick brings you with him every inch of the way… Towards the end there is a description of explaining events to people intimately connected with them; it’s a scene to make you cry for them and him. From beginning to end, this is a book that takes you on a journey with the author and I cannot recommend it enough.’
