    I was surprised by how much I liked this book It started out as another high action thriller, the kind of book I like to read at night to clear my mind after the research for my writing I often read during the day Then an eight year old girl named Kelly came onto the scene and everything changed.The action is sustained from beginning to end, presented with the edge that only someone who ha

    This was my first experience with Andy McNab s Nick Stone books, and this one was a blast Given that McNab was a former member of the SAS, and a highly decorated one, I was looking for something good and thisthan met my expectations.The novel begins in Gibraltar, where Stone and his fellow soldiers are putting a halt to Irish bombings, then fast forwards 9 years where Stone s mission in Washington

    McNab s first fiction effort is a corker of a book, following a by now familiar pattern in its structure but still remaining as fresh as its day of release The action packed plot sees McNab s hero Nick Stone taking out Irish bombers in Gibraltar, before we suddenly jump forward nine years and find him investigating the brutal slaying of a fellow SAS man in Washington Before you know it, McNab concocts an en

    I actually really enjoyed this It s the sort of action story where the protagonist doesn t just go through crap to come out as the saviour Nick Stone goes through crap, and thencrap, and then to top it off, evencrap.I really enjoyed the action and the thought processes behind characters decisions I also really liked that there were real events sprinkled into the story too There was a description of a fight in this b

    As I said in a previous review, he s a really good story teller This is a well composed story of drug smuggling and government abuse of power From someone else you might just accept that as part of the story, from McNab you d suspect that it was simply well informed I was most impressed with the character of the young girl He clearly knows eight year old girls well enough to know what they are really like, but can also put o

    Author Andy McNab is ex SAS and he weaves a detailed knowledge of not just what happens in the covert military world, but often explains exactly how the little things are done and achieved, throughout his masterly work In this edge of your seat thriller, that ability just adds spice to the gripping storyline This is a most unusual setting and has a side to it that is enthralling, breath taking, and at times very worrying, but it woul

    Great read on the end of being an enjoyable action thriller It s written smartly without having to sacrifice to become simplistic McNab s an author who will just use a phrase and explain it easily without having a huge lull in the action You can tell that he was somebody who did the deed back in the day and isn t afraid to relay that information through his character, Nick Stone.Maybe if I read enough of these books, I ll be able to have enou

    Meet Nick Stone cool, calm and collected with plenty of finesse and a level head in every situation Stone really is a too good to be true kind of character And I love him I read this book a long time ago on a plane but I know that it was one of my favourites The techniques that McNab outlines evidently come from experience and the action never lies dormant for long I can remember this one being a littlecomplicated to read than the likes of Chris Ryan

    The thing to remember about this book is it was written in the 90s Nowadays there are tons of films and books about ex special forces spys getting lumbered with a kid and having to protect them from people trying to kill them, and at the same time learning to care about them It s a trite idea, but this was one of the first to do it And unlike all the other, Andy McNab is former SAS, he s the best of the best, so everything in this book is as real as it gets Lo
