I'm a big Andy McNab fan, having read all his books this year (bar the books for kids), twice (at least!). I love his style, real, gritty, and described so you feel like you are there.
However unfortunately this book feels like its written by someone else. The two main characters are dull and feel like superficial, hollywood-ish stereotypes, not his usual interesting, 'real' characters. Plot was OK, but a bit simple and not up to Andy McNab's usual standard. The book felt like it was written by someone copying Andy McNab's style, but missing out all the key ingredients that make his books bloomin' fantastic.
Damn shame, all in all!
Having said all that, I still enjoyed reading it, but would never recommend it to anyone, as I think it just doesn't live up to McNab's marvellous standards!
