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.

3.0 out of 5 stars low life expectancy 23 Jan 2011
The latest Nick Stone novel starts in an interesting place. Stone has finally made some money and is enjoying a penthouse flat and a very nice car. Sadly he hears some bad news from a doctor which suggests he may have less time to enjoy himself then he anticipated. He therefore decides to `go out with a bang' and accepts a job from the Security Services to track down the daughter of an arms dealer that has gone missing.

Stone enlists girlfriend Anna to help him and they are soon swept up in the word of people trafficking and an awful lot of bad guys.
The majority of this is very strong as Stone follows the tracks of the missing girl (although why he is not provided with a weapon at the appropriate time felt a little odd) and generally the plot held together well. Having said that the over-arching plot about why the girl is wanted and the link into a previous Stone mission didn't work at all and that pulled me down from four stars into three. What could have been very good indeed ended up just being `okay'. But I suspect McNab fans will love it.

I took this to read on the beach and must admit it was a page turner from the first page to the last. I've read several of Andy McNab's Nick Stone series and, personally, I prefer the battlefield based sections of these books. Generally McNab's books are good but I prefer the action sequences, preferring to read Faulks, Forsyth or le Carre for the spy stuff... In this book McNab didn't disappoint. Most of the book is set on the battlefield with some chapters dedicated to the parallel and interwoven lives of the loved ones left at home. Having not been to war I can only take McNab's descriptions of what it is like at face value, but he does it in a very descriptive and emotional way which allows you to almost feel you are there.

Obviously he has crammed probably the experiences of an entire army into the 6 months of one platoon's posting, but then it is fiction and it makes for heart stopping action...

Recommended if you like war fiction... Even the wife enjoyed reading this one...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Nick Stone Yet 16 Dec 2010
By TommyD
Being a fan of the Nick Stone books, and in fact McNab's books in general, I was looking forward very much to this new instalment. I won't give the plot away for those who have not read it yet, suffice to say that it rattles along at a very quick pace and you can almost feel the bone crunching action. In this book I found it easier to relate to Stone- previous books have seen me skim over the "sentimental" parts (couldn't be doing with all that Kelly business!)- and I found myself empathising with him.
As always, McNab seems to have blended fact and fiction together, which served to keep me intrigued and turning the pages. There is a lovely twist at the end, but I won't say too much about it.... I finished this book in a couple of days as I literally couldn't put it down.
In all, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin 11 Jun 2011
Switch your brain off, sit back, open a beer/ pour a cuppa what ever floats your boat, kick back and enjoy the ride.
that sums up this and almost all of Andys books, You get your usual slice of action pace thrill and adventure, im not really sure what else anyone would be looking for when they purchase a title like this.

You get plenty of Bang for your Buck, but dont look for high brow! Totally enjoyed it for what it was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Stone 2 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellence from McNab, i cannot get enough of the Nick Stone novels. I have read them all and this one is as good as the rest. The only thing that comes close is Ryans Geordy Sharp novels, also a must read. I just hope my favourite charactor never gets killed off and McNab continues to write such excellent material.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a drag 11 April 2014
By skotl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Eventually gave up, at 49%.

Everything about the book is just dreary. Nick Stone was interesting in earlier books but, in this book, he, the girlfriend, the people, the locations are just sooooooooooo bleak, boring and dull. I honestly couldn't care less if the girl they were trying to find, the hero or his chain-smoking girlfriend don't survive - normally you need someone to root for but not in this case.
