The Feather Men is impossible to put down. Ranulph Fiennes is one of those English explorers whose life would be impossible to sell as a script. Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know, his autobiography, reads like something Ian Fleming would have written if he were bored with Bond. Unlike the movie, you get more depth in Ranulph Finnes's original book about these events. This is presented as a "Novel" because (wink) (wink), third parties involving the British government would have otherwise stopped it. Mr. Finnes makes it clear that it is really a true story.

From 1977 to 1990, three hired assassins known as the Clinic tracked down and murdered four former British soldiers, one at a time.
