Description

When the beautiful 20-year-old daughter of a Moldovan businessman goes missing from her university, British Intelligence will do anything in its power to track her down. Only one man is skilled and ruthless enough for the job - but for the first time in his life Nick Stone doesn't want to play ball...Fact: On 5 September 2007, Israeli jets bombed a suspected nuclear installation in northeastern Syria. Syrian radar - supposedly state-of-the-art - had failed to warn of the incoming assault. Fact: Unknown to anyone but the Israelis and the radar's manufacturers, the commercial, off-the-shelf microprocessors within it contained a remotely accessible kill switch.

It was hard to believe that this little f****r was going to kill me. I'd always imagined it would be something bigger, the diameter of a fist, a rifle butt or a 7.62. Dying like this? It felt so...pedestrian. I tried to smile. 'I always wondered what a death warrant looked like. Does it have a 'use by' date?'

About Andy McNab

From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life. As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. 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. Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's best-selling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers. He continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.show more
