1993: Under deep cover, Nick Stone and a specialist surveillance team have spent weeks in the jungles and city streets of Colombia. Their mission: to locate the boss of the world's most murderous drugs cartel - and terminate him with extreme prejudice. Now they can strike. But to get close enough to fire the fatal shot, Nick must reveal his face. It's a risk he's willing to take - since only the man who is about to die will see him. Or so he thinks...
2012: Nick is in Moscow; semi-retired; semi-married to Anna; very much the devoted father of their newborn son. But when the boy falls dangerously ill and the doctor who saves him comes under threat, Nick finds himself back in the firing line. To stop his cover being terminally blown, he must follow a trail that begins in Triad-controlled Hong Kong and propels him back into the even more brutal world he thought he'd left behind.
The forces ranged against him have guns, helicopters, private armies and a terrified population in their vice-like grip. Nick Stone has two decades of operational skills that may no longer be deniable - and a fierce desire to protect a woman and a child who now mean more to him than life itself.

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 was such an entertaining book I can honestly say I enjoyed every word of it. Not once did I find my mind wandering, Mcnab's storytelling kept me interested and wondering what could possibly happen next!!
Action packed with a fantastic storyline, Stone begins his adventure in Russia where he and his partner now live, but before the book ends he will find himself fighting in Asia, Moldova and South america.
This is action packed military storytelling at it's best with an exceptional storyline, bravo Mcnab!
yes, it was my first book and you get into the characters so much better.
If i had time
I enjoyed this book. Whilst it was a good story and well narrated, events had too much coincidence to be truly believable. It didn't spoil my enjoyment but did detract from the normal believable Nick Stone books.
My only criticism is I had to wait an extra year for this to be published. As usual Andy McNab has his character Nick Stone on top form. He fears nothing and when in dire trouble he accepts his lot with no feeling of self-pity or remorse. This time he is fighting for his wife and new born son from Moscow to Columbia via Moldova and the USA. Hopefully there will be another Nick Stone in 12 months time.
Great story and plot but Paul Thornley's over punctuation is very annoying . So much so that I would probably avoid purchasing any audio books he is reading.
Although the narrating was very very good and the idea behind the story was good, it just got too gory for me.
Well worth it, I found it gripping and entertaining. The plot was intriguing & suspense to the end
"Andy McNab does it again."
This guy is a genius, he takes you on the ride of a lifetime.
This is Andy McNab at his very best, I have all his books and this is a masterpiece.
