Sex and drugs and lock and load. 

Ben Timberlake has spent a lifetime in pursuit of the ultimate rush. This is an account of his near-execution in wartime Yugoslavia, his time in the SAS, combat in Iraq, encounters with a gambling-obsessed 9/11 hijacker, veterans blissed out on MDMA, as well as exploring hook-ups in the world of extreme sex and battling a heroin habit on a remote Scottish island. In this pilgrimage on the road of excess Ben looks at the social, biological, religious and personal factors that drive people to the edge and has a whole lot of fun along the way.

The why? As Mallory said of Everest, ‘Because it's there.' In Ben's case, there was no risk too high or gutter too low.   

Like a cross between Jason Bourne and Anthony Bourdain, this is Kitchen Confidential for the War on Terror. An unforgettable Audible Exclusive that will sate even the most hardened adrenaline junkie.
