Publisher's Summary

Out on the ice, polar bears aren't the only natural born killers.

Nick Stone is suffering. The two people he cared for most are gone. Thousands of miles away, five ex-servicemen, badly wounded in Afghanistan, are preparing for a trek to the North Pole in an attempt to begin to rebuild their shattered bodies and minds.

When Stone is summoned as close protection for the trek by an old SAS officer, he accepts unthinkingly, desperate for the chance to escape his own misery. They meet at the world's most northerly airport, where the locals are as hard as nails and the polar bear threat makes it against the law not to carry a gun. But it doesn't take long for Stone and his team to discover that neither the bears nor the locals are the most dangerous predators in this part of the world. It is quickly clear to Stone that the coldest war of all is just beginning.

    "Great progress"
    Any additional comments?

    As an all time fan of Mcnab's work, especially his Nick Stone novels, I might be bias when saying this book was awesome.

    The great thing about it was the different style and storyline Mcnab has chosen compared to his other books. I don't think he has written a book like this before, it's a very different storyline which was refreshing to say the least.

    If you like to watch Bear grills or other endurance specialists on TV, you'll love this book. It was a welcome change of pace and the exciting and gripping aspect of Nick Stone's adventures remained constant. Well worth a credit.

    "A Temperature Drop for Nick Stone"

    I have been an avid consumer of Nick Stone novels, so was keen to snap this new instalment up. I don't know if the temperature got to our protagonist this time, but I found this book very slow. A huge amount of time was spent milling around before the plot really got underway, and the ending was very confusing; relating to some sort of geopolitical subterfuge involving nameless groups from America and the former Soviet Union. I do hope this was a blip, and the next Nick Stone novel gets back to form. On a positive note, Paul Thornley's narration was very good - although as an ex squaddie, I found his pronunciation of REME as 'remy' rather than 'reemy' to be a little irritating!

    "Great fan of Nick Stone....."

    But this was probably the least entertaining Since when did Nick Stone turn into Sly Stallone with his long his monologue speeches? He's a cold hearted washed out killer, please bring him!!

    "Don't waist your Audible credit or cash on this ..."

    Thanks for reading this. I was really up for the new Nick Stone, but sadly it wasn't up to much. The setting and characters are great ′and the end of the book hints at a possible new direction - fingers crossed′. But the only positive for me was Paul Thornley's narration Brilliant as ever and as much part of Nick Stone as Jeff Harding is of Jack Reacher.

    "Disappointed again"

    I've loved the earlier Nick stone series but the last few books have been a bit boring. Running out of good storylines.
