    When Secret Intelligence Service deniable operator Nick Stone aborts an officially sanctioned assassination attempt at the Houses of Parliament, having realised who the target is, he is given a chilling ultimatum by his bosses: fly to Panama and finish the job, or Kelly, the 11-year-old orphan in his guardianship, will be killed.

    Overall

    I believe this is Mr McNab's third novel but its the first I have read. I came to this book after reading his biographical accounts Bravo Two Zero and Immediate Action some years ago.

    So what? The realism with which Mr McNab writes is manifest. Clearly based on his personal experiences and those of his former colleagues in the Regiment this book feels real.

    The opening sequence is incredibly tense. From there the book flows well and takes the reader on a believable ride from London to South America. There are no cliches here, there is nothing predictable about where the story is going.

    Mr McNab placs you right inside the main protagonists head so you can suffer his demons, understand his pride in his skills and wonder at the mind set of someone who, if necessary, will kill to complete his mission.

    The narration by Clive Mantle adds to the realism. After all Nick Stone is British with a working class background. Mr Mantle's accent fits perfectly which is important because without it you would miss the laconic soldiers humour which crops up throughout to provide a little light relief in a dirty world
