Publisher's Summary

Aborting an officially sanctioned assassination attempt at the Houses of Parliament when he realizes who the target is, Secret Intelligence Service "deniable operator" Nick Stone is given a chilling ultimatum by his bossess: fly to Panama and complete the task, or he and Kelly, the 11-year-old girl in his guardianship, will be killed.

In Central America, Stone prepares for his mission. But he has made powerful enemies, and as the hunter turns into the hunted, Nick gradually uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving Colombian rebels, the US government, and Chinese big business. In an explosive denouement at the Panama Canal, with everyone's true colours ultimately revealed, Nick Stone faces the toughest decision of his life.

Critic Reviews

"McNab's great asset is that the heart of his fiction is not fiction: other thriller writers do their research, but he has actually been there." (Sunday Times)

Rubbish narrator. Bring back Thornley.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Colin Buchanan?

Paul Thornley, hands down. No contest. Buchanan ruined it. I would have given this a five star rating had Thornley been the narrator.

Any additional comments?

Rubbish narrator. I would love to hear the unabridged version to this, as it was quite difficult to follow with certain aspects of the story being reduced.

However, I got the gist and it was a short, enjoyable listen. Mcnab is my favourite, the only thing with this audiobook was he did not stick the Paul Thornley, as he had done with so many of his other books. Paul T IS Nick Stone. This just wasn't the same with Colin Buchanan.

As boring as it is long!

Having read and listened to most of Mr McNab's books I was quite looking forward to this one but was so disappointed.
The Sunday times says he researches in detail because McNab's actually been there. And didn't I know it! Most of the book is spent describing his enviroment in such detail it gives you brain freeze. Most of the action occurs in the last hour as an afterthought that 'oh yeah a book is supposed to have some entertainment'.
Unless you are in need of a good sleep give it a miss.
