Book Description

31 Oct 2005
Ex-deniable operator Nick Stone seems to be living his dream, not a care in the world as he steers his camper van round the surfing and parachuting paradise of Australia, a board on the roof, a freefall rig behind him, and a beautiful young backpacker at his side. But when he sees a news report of the massacre of women and children in a terrorist outrage the other side of the world, long-suppressed memories are triggered, and Nick knows he must risk everything to repay a longstanding debt of friendship. As events unfold in the bleak, medieval villages of Georgia and teeming streets of modern Istanbul, NIck finds himself catapulted once more into the murky, clandestine world he thought he'd left behind - a world in the grip of nameless enemies who linger in the shadows, and stalk the corridors of power...Hurtled at breakneck pace through a deadly landscape of greed, violence and ever-shifting allegiances, the reader will be left in no doubt that McNab is the master of the genre - and "Aggressor" shows McNab at his searing, blockbusting best.

More About the Author

Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide.

During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am addicted 5 Sep 2006
Format:Hardcover
I am afraid I am addicted to McNab's books by now. The way he describes the world, people (using some specific descriptions instead of the names etc.) seems so real and natural to me that I just love reading them. Plus all the political context, attention to all technical and military details make it books that I can read in one go and only regret that they are issued that rarely ;) Another recommendation from my side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from McNab 18 Dec 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a great continuation of the Nick Stone series of novels. Again, the story moves at a good pace, but this may be partly due to the way it was written. There's more focus on his buddy and how they interact with their surroundings. In addition, McNab appears to have included significant characters to consider. The story is different in that he's not really on a military mission, but one to save his buddy so it's not so narrow or one-minded. McNab also writes more about human interaction and emotion. Although Nick normally finishes up worse off than when he started (i.e., friends and family dying), this story does have a subtle happy ending!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 10 Sep 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Tgis is not normally my sort of book. Infact I find it hard to read any book, if it hasn't gripped me after about 30 pages I get bored and don't read it.

Reading this book I was gripped straight away by the flashback. The book is full of twists and turns, just when you think it will go along a stagnant route it changes and adds to the story even more. McNab does not have the descriptive talent of some authors but he does has grit. Where other authors may use a descriptive "crimson red blood flowed from his motionless body" McNab uses " blood pumped from the holes pumped in his chest".

I found it very hard to put this book down and would recommend it to anybody, it is a very reasonable price aswell for such a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy McNab "Aggressor" 18 Jan 2006
Format:Hardcover
As usual a great plot with plenty of twists and turns.I found myself rooting for the hero and his older pal all the way.
I will say no more as I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
Well worth the money,the only bad thing is you wont want to put it down and it will be finished before you know it

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 10 Nov 2005
By Ted
Format:Hardcover
This is the first McNabb novel that I had read, but it will not be the last. Aggressor was a fast-paced thrill ride that I could not stop reading. The characters are amazing, teh plot is well thought out, the writing is wonderful. This book is certainly one of my favorites and I can't wait to read another of McNabb's. I also loved David Demello's The Killing Game and Dan Brown's Digital Fortress, if you like thrillers those two are great reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Whole Series 23 Mar 2013
By NS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read the series of these books. Very informative and a great read. Once you get into them you just want to read hte next one. When you know how many there are in the series and you're getting into the last couple you readlly want to read through them to see how it end. I guess that's what an engaging lead character and good wrting does for it. Read it.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
A very easy to read plot...to go save an old friend from trouble and bring him back alive; could be the only problem face when you are dealing with and old friend who must complete his mission as a soldier.

I find the plot is weak, only a handful of action coming from a military writer. Half of the book wrote about how to go about looking for the target, not much needed to plan for the mission. Most of all, not that i can find real danger in part for Nick and for Charlie, except some hurdles along the way when they face merely two bad guys worth the mentioned; Akaki and that Bastard.

Simply too easy to kill and escape in the plot. I was rushing the pages just to finish the book and go to my next book really. I will rate this 3 stars for a good first attempt reading a Andy McNab book. Wil try his other book - could be better or worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on top form 15 Sep 2006
By L.Eagle
Format:Hardcover
This book puts the Nick Stone series back on track and re-establishes the fact McNab is a top class novelist. Aggressor contained all the action you'd expect from McNab and unfolds with the customary pace. Hopefully future installments will maintain this standard!

This book is a slow burner; all the action is in the last third, the rest is a big build-up. Readable for all that, but less so than it should have been.
