Publisher's Summary

Ex-SAS trooper Nick Stone is extremely highly trained. Clever, ruthless and very effective, it is no surprise that he is hired by British Intelligence. On deniable operations - one of the most dangerous lines of work. Sarah Greenwood is beautiful, intelligent and cunning - and the only woman Stone has ever truly opened up to.

But now he has been ordered to hunt her down. Hotly pursued through the American wilderness, Stone finds himself at the centre of a deadly game of cat and mouse. He must get to the heart of a terrifying conspiracy theory to which only Sarah holds the key. But will he manage to before the tension reaches boiling point?

Not Mcnab's finest but good

Any additional comments?

This was an average read that didn't really grab my attention for much of the book. I enjoyed some parts of it, like when Stone was on his mission and camping out in the forest, but other than that there wasn't a great deal in the way of action or surprises. Enjoyable, but only just! Definitely give it a try, just know that Mcnab has done better.

Loved the story but the narrator MAKES it!

I've devoured this book. The narrator makes it seem like he is Nick. Brilliant performance.

Got hooked!

I normally only listen to audiobooks on my commute. That changed with this book and I found myself listening at every opportunity - great follow up to the first story.

Good original Nick Stone

Like this , historical Nick, back when Andy McNab could be bothered with relevant details.

Good

Was mostly good but ending was stupid. Andy cannot write relationships well. He should focus on the action.

Very very boring.

Mind numbing numbing stuff, almost like listening to the stories of an old grandparent over and over.

Gets bogged down

I am not sure about the need for all of the details in the book. The middle is heavily padded and the ending is rather abrupt.

Where's the special sauce?

This had some of the ingredients of a great Andy McNab novel - I learned some tradecraft and spent some time with the amusing and very human Nick Stone - but what it lacked was peril, tension and twists. The next one, Firewall, is much better, so do carry on with the series.

Slowish start but accelerates like a Suzuki GS 1000!

Good at the very beginning but gets a little slow for a chapter or two, but after that rapidly becomes a break only for loo calls!
