Summary

Nick Stone - deniable operator for British Intelligence - has been assigned to carry out an officially sanctioned assassination. When he realizes who the target is, he refuses. But he is then given a chilling ultimatum: fly to Central America and finish the job, or the 11-year-old orphan in his care will get killed.

Stone arrives in sweltering Panama close to breaking point. His life is in pieces, but things only get worse when he finds himself caught at the centre of a lethal conspiracy involving Columbian guerrillas. Hundreds of innocent lives are at stake.

Their only chance of rescue is Stone. But he has a critically injured friend to rescue, miles of dense rainforest to navigate and the toughest decision of his life to make....

Loved it

Any additional comments?

Brace yourselves Nick Stone fans; we're off to Panama. And this time Nick's 'adopted' daughter Kelly's life hangs in the balance and depends solely on his ability to succeed in his mission.

This instalment was great. I enjoyed listening to his jungle survival tactics and hearing his disposal of the pure scum that often infests it..!

Great fourth book. Long live the Nick Stone series!

Good, but a bit slow at times

Well narrated, and a good overall story, but just not exactly as action packed as I like..

Nick Stone - Better than Jack Reacher

Nick Stone gets more and more complex and interesting. Plot lost me a bit though.

Not bad

my least favourite I think of the early Nick Stone editions, but still some enjoyable parts. The details about death are spot on.

Continued Excellence

Another excellent escapade for Nick Stone.

A sttrange start but developed into another great book with enough military & human detail to keep you gripped without drowning in either.

Disappointing

Lot of filler and the story has lots of holes in it. Pity cos I was looking forward to it.
