Summary

Tough, resourceful, and ruthless, ex-SAS trooper Nick Stone is now working for British Intelligence on deniable operations. And is desperately in need of cash. When he is offered a lucrative freelance job, Stone thinks his problems are over. All he needs to do is kidnap a Russian mafia warlord. And so Stone is thrust into the grim underworld of Estonia, with unknown aggressors stalking the Arctic landscape.

Russia has launched a cyber-espionage attack, hacking into the West's most sensitive military secrets. Stone must stop them. But the mafia are waiting in the wings with their own chillingly brutal solution....

A true blockbuster

I loved this story, which is almost 4 stories in one, each one building the tension to an explosive climax.

A Total Revelation

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.

A*

A great listen, had me laugh out loud at certain points. I do like how it's not a super hero helps you really enjoy the story.

The Estonian tourist board might not be a fan! 😂

Good story, takes a few chapters to get going. One thing I'm certain of is that I never want to visit Estonia after reading this! 😂

Bloody and good

A bit better than number two, but still saw where the big twist was, but didn't see how he was going to get through it or who with. Nick has another tough time and the action is detailed and gritty. His fights are never one punch knock outs. Looking forward to number 4.

Nick Stone Top Operator.

Really Enjoyed it.. Great writing edge of the seat stuff. Up there with Stratton, Duncan Falconer and James Deegan. Paul Thornley is perfect for the character too. Fast Paced and compelling.. 👊🏻👍🏻
