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 good listen

Interesting and accurate in most parts but wandered off a little at times and thats why only a 3 on story.....Paul Thornley is a good narrator and was convincing as the character. I am an ex intel officer so I quite enjoyed some of the technical bits

Another Nick Stone belter from McNab

A big fan of McNabs books now ,and Nick Stone!, great descriptive writing, so much detail you know exactly what rooms are like you go in to, the forests you walk through and the stations hotels and huts you stand in. Long way to go yet in the NS saga but looking forward to it.

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.

Nick Stone does not dissapoint

I am never able to guess the ending, thrilling to the end. I cannot wait for the next one in the series!
