Book Description

4 May 2006 Boy Soldier
Danny and Elena are now working for the Firm, desperately attempting to track down the vengeance-seeking Black Star before more 'Angels of Death' suicide bombers are despatched. Elena is the key to discovering the bomb-master's whereabouts as she has already made Deep Web contact. The plan is simple - locate Black Star and kill him - at whatever cost. While Fergus is forced to remain in England, confined to a wheelchair as he recovers from his injuries, the hunt takes Danny and Elena to New York on a covert mission led by Marcie Deveraux. Despite Black Star's trickery and deception, the net gradually closes. Fergus travels to the US to help, but Elena is drawn into terrible danger, and only Danny can save her. Using the skills his grandfather has taught him and his own initiative, he must stop the avenging bomb-master from wreaking further destruction...

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 SAS (Seriously Addictive Stuff!!!) 16 May 2006
Format:Hardcover
A very well written third novel in an exceptional series of thriller/action books. I read the first of these novels ('Boy Soldier') to screen it before giving it to my 12 year old son, (the series being aimed at the 'teen' market,) but now we're both addicted. 'Avenger' is darker, deeper and even more thought provoking than the previous two novels of the series. The principal characters have developed in such a way as to draw us into their world, and to feel and live every moment of their complex lives, almost as if we were there along side them ourselves! Wonderful stuff!! A great read and a great series. Highly recommended for ages 12 to adult. A true page turner through and through! Thank you again Messers McNab and Rigby!! Roll on May '07 for the next installment!

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional novel 20 May 2006
Format:Hardcover
Avenger, more than even the first two books in the Boy Soldier series, completely blew me away. Congratulations to the authors firstly for choosing to tackle such a controversial subject and secondly for doing it so well - their treatment of the suicide bombers theme is fundamentally sensitive and consequently the plot itself is even more gripping but also scarily relevant. I think this is a really important book for adults and young people alike and needs to be read. I can't wait for the next one - I only hope it won't be the end of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad start but a great book! 17 Aug 2006
Format:Hardcover
This book has a bad start; it feels like it is aimed at a child and that I am back at school, and the plot seems utterly implausible. About 5 chapters in, you are ready to give up.

Then the book or I suppose the author, clicks!

What follows is a very exciting read. Unlike most spy novels which fizzle out towards the end, this is truly climatic with strong progression throughout the book. Close to the end you can not turn the pages fast enough. Moreover, the book leaves you with some profound questions around the price we have to pay for our security which you will take away long after you put the book down.
