Description

Bodyguarding a TV crew on the streets of war-torn Basra, ex-deniable operator Nick Stone seems certain to die when insurgent gunmen attack. Only the reporter's swift action saves his life. When the reporter vanishes within hours, presumed kidnapped, Stone is asked by the Intelligence Service to find him. The trail leads from Iraq to London, Dublin, and ultimately Kabul - the dark and brutal city where governments, terrorism and big business inexorably collide. Caught in the crossfire, Stone's nightmare is only just beginning - for the hunter has suddenly become the hunted, in a heart-stopping race against time...show more

About Andy McNab

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 two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero, which was filmed in 1998 starring Sean Bean, and Immediate Action. He is the author of the bestselling novels, Remote Control, Crisis Four, Firewall, Last Light, Liberation Day and Dark Winter. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK.show more

Our customer reviews

<p>Nick Stone's 10th outing ... and this time it's in Iraq!</p> <p>If any books are expected to "do what they say on the tin" it is the novels of Andy McNab. High-octane, furiously fast-paced narratives with McNab's trademark unfussy style (a stylessness which seems to owe something to Hemingway, and something to the no-nonsense prose of a training-manual!) helping to get Nick Stone violently get the job done. </p> <p>But beneath the gun-festooned covers, and underneath the machismo and the swearing, McNab's skill as a writer is underappreciated. His workmanlike prose can often be more precise than it looks and it carries his story quickly to where it needs to get; the political themes that lie behind Nick Stone's adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan whilst not over-indulged are also shown to be more than troubling. </p> <p>McNab fans will already be sold on this; McNab newbies should start here.</p>show more
