Ex-deniable operator Nick Stone seems to be living his dream, not a care in the world as he steers his camper van round the surfing and parachuting paradise of Australia, a board on the roof, a freefall rig behind him, and a beautiful young backpacker at his side.
But when he sees a news report of the massacre of women and children in a terrorist outrage the other side of the world, long-suppressed memories are triggered, and Nick knows he must risk everything to repay a longstanding debt of friendship.
As events unfold in the bleak, medieval villages of Georgia and teeming streets of modern Istanbul, Nick finds himself catapulted once more into the murky, clandestine world he thought he'd left behind - a world in the grip of nameless enemies who linger in the shadows, and stalk the corridors of power...
Hurtled at breakneck pace through a deadly landscape of greed, violence and ever-shifting allegiances, the reader will be left in no doubt that McNab is the master of the genre - and Aggressor shows McNab at his searing, blockbusting best.

This story was set differently and I really enjoyed the change in approach by the Author. Another great story in this wonderful series.
I normally love these books but I wasn't gripped by the story here. There was altogether too much time spent driving around. Paul Thornley made an excellent job of the narration but the story was just ok
Andy's Does it again. He makes the whole book run through your mind just like a film running through your mind/ Nick seems to have it all, traveling around Australia, living the life. Free fall, traveling in a VW Camper, then it all turns to the usual active race to the end.
The whole book was a fast run that shows like film through your mind.. I couldn't put the tape down as usual.
As always, his voice and skills really bring the book to life
i had the usual roller coaster ride while I listened to the book
I just cannot wait for the next chance to listen to Andy's next book
The audio version is brought to life brilliantly by Paul Thornley's performance, Yes.
Gripping action-packed climax, fast paced but detailed. Brilliant.
I think Paul Thornley brings Nick Stone to life with perfect accent and delivery.
The book leaves you satisfied, yet eager for the next one.
As ever with Andy McNabb, the detail and accuracy is brilliant, plot is gripping but never unbelievable like other authors in this genre.
My perfect night in: Cup of tea, all my wonderful audible books and dramas and a comfortable seat on top of my bed. Nuf sed'
The fact it was unabridged! Great story, I really enjoyed the fact that Nick Stones' closest escapes were in this book.
All of it!
I recently had an email from Andy Mcnab through his Facebook page, after I congratulated him on the success of these books and to also tell him how great Paul Thornley is narrating for him. That's how much I enjoy these thrillers!
So in Agressor, Stone starts off on the hot and white sandy beaches of Oz, but will find himself in Tiblisi/ Georgia, Turkey and the UK. There was an air of tragedy in this story, as you will discover if you decide to purchase it.
It was a welcome change of pace listening to Nick Stone do what only he does best with someone else alongside him, a close and long standing friend that Nick feels compelled to help out by going along on his friend's last mission.
This book was great fun to listen to. As ever, Stone/Mcnab feed my addiction for action and violence with a really interesting storyline in Aggressor, I'm sure you won't regret it either.
Well done Andy
If I ever got that bad of an upset stomach I might :D
Plug it in during rush hour, becomes almost a pleasure being stuck in traffic.
