Publisher's Summary

When a young trooper is shot in the head at the Regiment’s renowned Killing House, Nick Stone is perfectly qualified to investigate the mysterious circumstances more deeply. He has just returned from Moscow – still trying to come to terms with the fact that his girlfriend and baby son are safer there without him – so combines an unrivalled understanding of the Special Forces landscape with a detachment that should allow him to remain in cover.

But less than forty-eight hours later, a second death catapults him back into the firing line – into the telescopic sights of an unknown assassin bent on protecting a secret that could strike at the heart of the establishment that Stone has, in his maverick fashion, spent most of his life fighting to protect.

And now the clock is ticking, Stone hurtles from the solitude of a remote Welsh confessional to Glencoe – whose shadows still whisper of murder and betrayal – and on to Southern Spain, in an increasingly desperate quest to uncover the truth about a chain of events that began in the darkness of an Afghan hillside, and left a young man haunted by the never-ending screams of a friend the Taliban skinned alive.

Nick Stone’s most heart-stopping adventure yet will force the reader to recognise the thinness of the line that separates sacrifice from suicide, to share the nightmares that walk hand in hand with heroism – and to count the real cost of actions taken in the name of loyalty.

    Story
    "Oh how I've missed you Stone..."
    If you could sum up For Valour in three words, what would they be?

    Andy Mcnab in all his glory


    What about Paul Thornley’s performance did you like?

    Paul thornley is the greatest narrator when it comes to playing a gritty, tough ex SAS solider. As far as I'm concerned, there is no point in casting any other narrator to play Nick Stone. I've have tried to listen to other narrators trying to play Stone, but Thornley is unrivalled in his talent for narrating for Mcnab.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried with relief when the day finally came of Valour's release


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the next Stone instalment. Mcnab is my favourite, so perhaps I am biased in my reviews of his books.

    In this adventure, rather than the jungles of Colombia or the freezing conditions of Russia, Stone takes us through our very own green and not-so pleasant land, trying to unravel a mystery that has left men dead.

    As ever, Mcnab's survival intellect and gritty storytelling leaves me wanting more. Especially from Nick Stone. I'm still coming to terms with the death of Kelly, almost ten books ago, so am hoping another form of relationship is possible for our good hearted hero.

    As ever, a great listen.

    "Too bitty, too many chapters...maybe its just me"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Somebody who likes a new chapter every 3 or 4 minutes woud love it.There are 144 chapters in this audio book, from under 2 mins to 6 or so, and after the first few, they aren't called 1-144 in the audio so its easy to get lost if you're trying to find where you were on another offline device, from what the voice says at the start of the chapter !


    What could Andy McNab have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know what it is but I really didn't get on with this one, I normally really enjoy his stuff, the narrator was OK, not great but didn't detract from it.It had all the usual McNab stuff in the mix, which I usually like but somehow this book just didn't do it for me.I seemed to always be wondering where/when are we in the story, not usually a problem for me, maybe it was the way it was broken up into very small pieces or the scene not being set somehow, dunno... I kept going back and forth in the book trying to get a feel for it, but never really got immersed.


    What didn’t you like about Paul Thornley’s performance?

    The lack of positive things abut it to be honest, nothing hugely negative but nothing the other way either.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Hmmmm...


    Any additional comments?

    It would help to have chapter X in the audio be the same as chapter X in the index, not chapter X (in the chapter menu) = chapter Y, part Z (in the audio)....

    Not suggesting the book is reorganised to suit the audio, just that the menu in the Audible app should say the same as the voice does (which is presumably what's in the paper book).

    "Pointless"

    Starts off ok then the story never really gets moving, more like a travel journal as no action like all the other Nick Stone books.

    "Disappointed"

    Started off well but then soon drops off, I stuck with it until the end hoping it would pick up but it never did. I've enjoyed many of the books in the series but this one just didn't do it for me.
    If you're looking for action you won't find it in this book.

    "What a twist!"
    Where does For Valour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think it's as good as any but my favourite is still Firewall.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of For Valour?

    Where he is being chased by the Leather Men through London.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the Serbian sniper scene and the chase by the Leather men.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. But as usual i finished too quickly and now I need more. MORE!!


    Any additional comments?

    Great ending and some gripping scenes take you once again into the surprising, volatile world of Nick stone.
