If Nick Stone wasn't so desperate for his American citizenship, he probably wouldn't have agreed to do this one last job with the CIA. But Carrie is over there and he simply can't refuse the chance of a new life with the woman he loves.
The job seems simple enough - and he is certainly skilled enough. Infiltrate the hostile, violent republic of Algeria, kill a money-laundering businessman, and bring back his severed head.
Stone knows there are some questions you don't ask, but as events spin out of control he realizes there is vital information he hasn't been told. Lurking beneath the glamorous exterior of the south of France is a dirty drugs war - and Stone is thrown into the middle of it. And there he is faced with his toughest dilemma yet...

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'
As ever, Mcnab has a flair for action packed storytelling. There are parts of this book that are totally brutal and shocking. Mcnab knows just how to capture the dark side of humankind.
The only thing that stopped me from awarding a five star rating was the mission, the radio dialogue was a bit prolonged, and a bit tedious at times. Other than that another this super addition to the amazing Nick Stone series by the legendary Andy Mcnab.
An interesting storyline which is believable and exciting. Hard to predict what will happen next. A good balance of background setting together with the usual amazing insight into the world of Nick Stone. Excellent narration as usual.
"One of the best in the series and a great listen"
First time listened to an Andy Mcnab novel instead of reading it, and really enjoyed both the story and the performance
