Lincoln, 14 aprile 2009: la cattedrale della città inglese è gremita di ex militari, riuniti per dare l’ultimo saluto a Tenny, uomo e soldato eccezionale, caduto in azione. Non manca proprio nessuno al funerale, neppure Nick Stone solitamente refrattario a raduni e a rimpatriate, che cerca in quella folla i due amici più cari, Ken il Rosso e Dex. Con loro e con Tenny ha affrontato una missione pericolosa nella Germania dell’Est poco prima del crollo del Muro. Ora che si sono ritrovati, i suoi due vecchi compagni gli propongono di tornare in azione insieme, e Nick Stone non sa dire di no. Il piano, per i suoi due amici, è semplice: in un magazzino a Dubai si trovano, pressocché incustodite, due porte d’oro che Saddam Hussein si è fatto costruire prima della seconda guerra del Golfo. Si tratta di rubarle e consegnarle su una pista d’atterraggio al misterioso committente del furto. Un’azione rischiosa, come Stone sa fin troppo bene. Infatti, qualcosa va storto e i suoi due amici ci rimettono la vita. Solo Stone si salva e decide di vendicarli, sperando così di placare il senso di colpa per non aver saputo proteggerli. Ma la situazione si complica ulteriormente…

Yet again another good book by Andy Mcnab. Full of action,double crossing and revenge. Excellent read.
Exit Wound, in my perspective, is again taking us all to that nasty and dark place. Not many writers can take you to that same place that Nick Stone dwells. The book starts off on the other side of the Berlin wall, and there is a short moment of Nick using a flashlight. This may not sound interestin Leggi tutto
Number 12 in the Nick Stone series and Andy McNab is still at his best; he never fails to deliver. Another terrific story, full of twists and turns. A small group of old army mates, who decide include Nick Stone, attempt to steal some solid gold gates Sadam had had made before his demise. Stored in
The final Nick Stone episode (for now) and one of the best, reminded me of the film 3 kings at the start. The book was fast paced and tense, good ending and glad that once the finale happened there was a few pages to finish off the story which I have found frustrating with the Nick Stone series in t Leggi tutto
This is my favourite Andy McNab book so far, I still have several more to read! Its amazingly written, action packed, right from the first page and kept me on edge until the very last sentence. I took the time to google army jargon and lyrics of songs as I went along, and I felt even more like I was Leggi tutto
I have enjoyed all of the Andy McNab books thus far in the Nick Stone series. Though "Exit Wound" is by far the best book. About a third of the way into it it takes a great turn and a good book became a great book.
Terrific plot and unputdownable read.
I was a bit disappointed in the preceding book in the series ( Brute Force ) so I was really pleased to see McNab back in form with this installment! The whole gold heist seems slightly implausible - even Nick Stone has his doubts, but he goes along to keep an eye on his friends - and, as it turns out, Leggi tutto
Exit Wound by Andy McNab is a thriller novel, 12th novel in the series of Nick Stone. Three ex-SAS comrades go on a mission of stealing three tons of Saddam Hussein's gold in Dubai. These guys have gone on a similar mission before, during the Soviet Union reign in 1989. This time, the mission fai
Not going to say much as I'm rubbish at reviewing. But this one was quite a good read. I can't say to much without revealing what happens, but after just finishing it, I'm already looking forward to starting the next one. 5 out of 5
