Deep beneath the English Channel, a small army of vicious terrorists has seized control of the Eurostar to Paris, taken 400 hostages at gunpoint - and declared war on a government that has more than its own fair share of secrets to keep. One man stands in their way.
An off-duty SAS soldier is hiding somewhere inside the train. Alone and injured, he’s the only chance the passengers and crew have of getting out alive. Meet Andy McNab's explosive new creation, Sergeant Tom Buckingham, as he unleashes a whirlwind of intrigue and retribution in his attempt to stop the terrorists and save everyone on board - including Delphine, the beautiful woman he loves.
©2012 Andy McNab (P)2012 Random House Audiobooks 2012
It was terrible written, the voice acting was great, I am a long time listener to Andy Mcnab, and thoroughly enjoy his Audiobooks, The Nick Stone books in particular) but this is so bad for the simple point that all his books up till now were REALISTIC. This b makes no sense, and is very Hollywood in the decisions and actions the characters make.
I didnt even finish it because it was such a bad 35 mins that I listened too. Very poor.
Not Andy Mcnab anymore if he writes more garbage like this.
Really great accents and timing, he was the only reason that I got as far as I did with the story. Great job.
Only the voice acting, the story was not worth the paper it was written on.
Do not listen. its a waste of money.
"An Average But Enjoyable Andy McNab"
I've read the majority of the Nick Stone series and I have to admit that "Red Notice" isn't quite up there with them but it's not too far away. The initial pace is a bit slow - the main story centres around an incident in the channel tunnel and it takes a few hours to get there. If you've read Andy McNab's work before you'll be familiar with the usual SAS build up, their base in Hereford, the bond between the soldiers etc. The characters in "Red Notice" aren't quite as strong as those in the Nick Stone series. The war criminal head of the terrorists is a bit too comic book at times and the romantic interest between the lead character Tom Buckingham and his partner Delphine is a bit melodramatic. However, these are minor gripes and they don't detract from an enjoyable read. Narration is top notch from Colin Buchannan. It's not in the same league as the mainly 5 star Nick Stone series but still worthwhile for me with a decent four stars.
"Really didn't enjoy this"
I love a bit if mindless action, I love a thriller. I've enjoyed some of mr "mcnab's" previous work. But this...come on Andy. It was terrible. Predictable and just pretty much thriller by numbers. Bits felt like they'd been changed just to suit the story and overall everything was damn convenient.
Must do better. D-
"Andy McNab very very poor"
This has to be Andy McNabs worst book I've ever read and unfortunately this is by far the weakest.three to four hours into the audio book and I was still not hooked but totally "zoned out". I'm giving one star for Colin Buchannan as narrator who was excellent real shame about the book/storyline.
after this I will never read A.McNab again!!!!!!.
"5 star story!"
Yes, I hated pausing it and hated finishing it so obviously I enjoyed it immensely
I suppose tom would be my favourite character but it's the interplay between him and his friends that really made him so likeable.
The narrator was excellent I especially like the way he switched from one character to the next, I think that it made the story more alive in my head than had I simply been reading the novel.
Yes and I tried to but I gave up just after midnight *yawn*
"Horrible, boring and lazy"
How does Andy McNab have a following. This is the writing at its worst. The Characters and terrible and have no depth. So much left unresolved like the Andy just forgot where his story was going.
Never, This was the first one and read and the last!
Great, I like his pacing. He did the best with the material.
Only if it was changed or speed up
Dont waste your time!
Andy McNab shows his metal again. Fast and action packed, with a story line that's easy to follow and will keep you reading ( or listening) If you like escapism with hard and fast action you'll like this. Well narrated.
"Not the best of Andy's books"
After reading may of the Stone books I’ve been disappointed with many of the other titles Andy has written and this book is no exception. The narration is good but this story lacks characterisation and the action lacks credibility, excitement and suspense. Just about worth sticking with it until the end but no real twists or turns.
"Red Notice: Andy McNab"
An action packed adventure from former SAS sergeant Andy McNab's new hero Sergeant Tom Buckingham. Gorgeous French girl Delphine provides the love interest, but this is no chick-lit story. It's a roller-coaster of a tale as a small army of terrorists hi-jack a Euro star train to Paris and its 400 passengers. Only Sergeant Tom stands between the hostages and a bloody massacre until help eventually turns up.
"The best for a while"
This is a new character and a great read. It is mcnabb in an environment he knows well. Cant wait fir more in the series
"Quite a reasonable yarn"
I am not normally into army type books, but my husband is... so if he's read or listened to a book he nags me.... or bores me to tears, telling me all about it. This time I got in first! Yes I did quite enjoy it, after the first really nasty bit ( I am a bit squeamish and anti war atrosities explicitly explained, sort of person), once the story got going proper, I did quite enjoy it. In fact I quite like Andy McNab's books, they are cetainly action packed. I would give his other books a go, so it can't have been too bad.
