Product 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. But what is the raid's mysterious connection with the missing student? What is the secret to Britain's security to which she unwittingly holds the key? And when ex-SAS deniable operator Nick Stone is tasked to find and abduct her, why is he not on 'receive'? I stared at the tiny shadow on the scan. 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?' As Nick walks from the Harley Street clinic, he's become a man with nothing to lose. And he wants to go down fighting...

Author information

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. www.andymcnab.co.uk
