Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Line of Fire by Andy McNab, read by Paul Thornley.

Nick Stone is back in London, but if he thought he was home for a break, he's very, very wrong.

Backed into a corner by a man he knows he cannot trust, ex-deniable operator Nick Stone strikes a devil's bargain. In exchange for his own safety - a life for a life - Stone is charged with locating someone who doesn't want to be found, currently hiding out in the one of the remotest corners of the UK. And for the first time in a long time, he's not operating alone.

But Stone and his team don't find just anyone. They find a world-class hacker, so good that her work might threaten the stability of the Western world as we know it. These are dangerous waters, and Stone is quickly in over his head. Before he finally knows which way to turn, the choice is ripped out of his hands.

Most people might think of home as safety, but Nick Stone isn't most people. For him and his team, it's just another place to get caught in the line of fire....

Stone is hard as nails

He's flawed but he's tough. Nick Stone certainly hasn't lost his touch in another entertaining Andy Mcnab thriller, I can see why Mcnab was raked among the top 10 writers of all time.

Wherever you are listening to this book, you're guaranteed to be hooked from start to finish.

Just couldn't get into it

Once again the invulnerable if not immortal Nick Stone ventures forth against The Man with his dysfunctional disabled Ex-squaddy cronies, one of whom is a Scot and another is a black Rasta. Surprised McNab didn't add a black lesbian Corbynista to hit another right-on button [sigh]. Like the previous Book in the series, i gave up after a few chapters and doubt i will bother again.

Not his best

I've been a fan of both McNab and Thornley. I've found their stories interesting and riveting. All presented well by the narrator. I struggled with the last book and this one is worse. I couldn't get into the story and when I did I felt I'd need to start from the beginning. Paul Thornley does his best but Nick Stone needs a new direction. Disappointed !!

Line of fire

Really enjoyed this story compared to the last one cold blood. Had more drama grit and determination and was like the books earlier in the series. My only criticism with the books is they build up well but finish very abruptly. Other than that another excellent book to the series.

AWESOME!

Nick Stone deserves a knighthood. Best adventure yet if you include the previous book. Andy Mcnab should get a streaming service to turn the stories into a mini series like Jack Ryan. Paul Thornley is a great pick as all the characters voice. I'll be going through this again just because it's a great story. really enjoyed this one.

Disappointed

Having read the series and loving it, I was disappointed with this performance. 1stly I have an image of Nick Stones and the narrators voice does not fit with the masculine voice I had in my mind. The story is then pretty weak, with Nick getting captured yet again, taking punishment, escaping then it all happens all over again. Nothing new for me and falling behind other action characters.

Andy McNab is on top of his game !!

Andy McNab is a fantastic story teller he uses his experiences to bring the story to life. I have all of the Nick Stone books, this is right up there with the best.

Well done Andy, once again !!
