An operation so realistic that it could have actually happened—if it hadn’t yet—is grippingly woven in the pages of author Brian Elliott’s newly published book, The Evil Within. Non-stop suspense and action awaits readers in this compelling novel.
Bernadette McGough was the fearsome, sadistic leader of the IRA Active Service Unit (ASU) that tortured Jeremy Carver to death. As peace negotiations were about to begin, this attack was against the IRA Army Council Instructions. This resulted in Bernadette McGough and her ASU being given a role out of the province, and tasked with hunting down the former IRA touts that had betrayed their colleagues. These men were despised; whilst those ‘grassed on’ were rotting in the depths of the Maze prison—defying their guards, suffering enormously under the degradation of the blanket protests and hunger strikes. Her killing spree continued with a vengeance; touts that she uncovered around the world were ruthlessly and mercilessly tortured and killed. The Maze continued to fill up with convicted terrorists. The bombings, the shootings, and the murders continued.
Then the Prime Minister was informed about David Carver, father of Jeremy; and a massive plan emerged to take out IRA terrorists. The British Government wanted an end to the troubles in Ulster, and suddenly Bernadette became the hunter being hunted. David Carver, former Brigadier and ex-head of the SAS, built a small but very effective fighting machine. He was given total autonomy; and a ‘shoot to kill’ policy was in full force. David enthusiastically and unwaveringly applied the new policy to tremendous effect; they progressively eliminated the IRA to a handful of inexperienced activists.
The Evil Within is a harrowing story that moves along at a breath-taking pace, culminating in a vicious and brutal climax on the military training area of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.

About the Author
Brian Elliott started his early career as a miner, at a colliery in the north east of England, and after three years, decided that working underground was not for him. In total contrast, he joined the army, enjoyed the life, then spent the next twenty-five years soldiering, in the UK, Germany, Singapore, Borneo, Malaya, and other places, either too forbidden to tell, or too numerous to mention. Retiring in 1985, he settled in the military town of Amesbury in Wiltshire. He ran many different businesses, ranging from selling trophies and engraving from his shops to supplying Arabic calendars to Sudan. He started and sold two businesses in the financial sector, before moving on in 1998, to working in the computer industry, where he still claims, he knows nothing about. He developed a ‘fad’ for writing in the late 1990s; and now medically retired, he has returned in earnest to what he enjoys, and that is writing. Married twice, he always maintained that the first wife ran away and left him, but the other wouldn’t. After suffering cancer, heart troubles, and a number of strokes, and has been blind since 2005, he now lives in the north of England, with his guide dog, Wade. He now says that he is very happy with his three careers, a brunette, and two dumb blondes, who cost him a fortune, and now has to come out of retirement to survive.
