Forget female Scandi cops. Give me a red-blooded thriller with a moral core any day.
I wasn't prepared for how good this book was going to be. It is a well written action story that starts off with a high adrenalin sequence, introduces you to a likeable, funny and fallible main character, builds tension by putting the hero at risk and really gets into the detail of tradecraft. After reading it I immediately went and bought the first in the series, and I'm steadily working my way through all of them.
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'
Yes. Because it was highly entertaining and action packed.
This book is a great example as to why I find Andy Mcnab's novels so entertaining; action packed from the start, full of clever information and fascinating survival secrets:this book is a must read if you're a Mcnab fan, or even if you're not!
In this story, stone will find himself embarking on a mission throughout eastern europe; Estonia, Russia, Finland and eventually London, England. Highly entertaining from the start, I urge you to buy this audiobook, you won't be bored once. Bravo once again Mcnab. On to book 4 now ....
