ESPIONAGE & SPY THRILLER. The first novel in an explosive, action-packed series of modern spy thrillers from acclaimed broadcaster, BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner - someone with a unique insight into the murky world of espionage and counter-terrorism. Introducing Luke Carlton - ex-Special Boat Service commando, and now under contract to MI6 for some of its most dangerous missions. Sent into the steaming Colombian jungle to investigate the murder of a British intelligence officer, Luke finds himself caught up in the coils of a plot that has terrifying international dimensions. Hunted down, captured, tortured and on the run from one of South America's most powerful and ruthless drugs cartels and its psychotic leader thirsting for revenge, Luke is in a life-or-death race against time to prevent a disaster on a truly terrifying scale: London is the target, the weapon is diabolical and the means of delivery is ingenious

Blood and sand : love, death and survival in an age of global terror by Frank Gardner( Book )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
On 6 June 2004, Frank Gardner and cameraman Simon Cumbers were in a suburb of Riyadh, filming a report on Al-Qaeda when they were confronted by Islamist gunmen. Simon was killed outright. Frank was brought down by shots in the shoulder and leg. As he lay bleeding in the street, a figure stood over him and pumped four more bullets into him at point blank range ... Against all the odds, Frank Gardner survived, and this is his remarkable account of the agonizing journey he has taken - from being shot and left for dead to where he is today, partly paralysed but alive, travelling once more and back in front of the camera for the BBC. It's a journey that really began 25 years earlier when a chance meeting with explorer Wilfred Thesiger inspired what would become a lifelong passion for the Arab world - a passion that would lead to his becoming a BBC journalist. And, in the wake of the events of 9/11, this passion sent him on the journey that came to dominate - and nearly end - his life: his coverage of Al-Qaeda. Honest, moving and inspiring, his story - now updated for this new paperback edition - reveals a deep understanding of the Islamic world and offers a compelling analysis of the on-going 'War on Terror' and what it means in these uncertain times. It also marks a watershed in the author's life, recounting his emotional return to Saudia Arabia for the first time since that fateful day ten years ago

Following the toppling of dictators in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, a myth is taking hold that the entire Arab region aspires to Western-style democracy. In this program, BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner travels to Saudi Arabia to challenge that misconception and examine what the future may bring to the Gulf's most powerful country. From the palaces of Riyadh to the bustling backstreets of Jeddah, Gardner interviews women's rights activists, journalists, a popular, irreverent stand-up comedian, and even members of the monarchy to reveal what makes the famously secretive Saudi Arabia tick
