Nick Stone's future has never looked as bleak. The only person he's ever loved is dead. The only people who might give him a reason not to join her have turned their backs. Until a chance encounter with a man he saved ten years ago appears to throw him a lifeline...
But on the bullet- and bomb -scarred streets of Baghdad, second chances are in short supply. A simple quest becomes a journey to the heart of a chilling conspiracy; too late, he realizes that he is being used as bait - to lure into the open a man he believes can offer some salvation, but whom the darker forces of the West will stop at nothing to destroy...
From its violent and shocking opening in the Muslim enclaves of Bosnia, through vivid, lightning-paced action in war-torn Iraq, this unforgettable story proves Andy McNab yet again to be the master of the modern thriller, a writer at the very top of his game.

The general basis for the story is believable and well thought out as usual. However, at times the book goes into too much detail in the scene setting and not much actual action seemed to occur. Explaining how the waiter behaved around the pool was not required, more action was. Usually these books strike this balance well but this book, for me, didn't achieve this.
The beginning and end are very good.
Excellent as usual. Very versatile accents.

I would still recommend this book if you have read the others in the series, just for me it was my least favourite.

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'
This one was not Mcnab's best work but certainly pone worth purchasing and listening to. I would listen again.
Great story and as ever I find myself learning so much from Mcnab's books. The best thing audible has done is to listen to other reviews and start putting his books online in unabridged versions. I have spent lots of money on his books, they are quite simply unrivalled in the military/action genre of fictional writing.
