Medaglia al valore
Tutti i formati dell'opera
Quando un giovane soldato viene colpito alla testa da un proiettile presso la rinomata Killing House del Reggimento, Nick Stone, che come nessun altro conosce il mondo delle Forze Speciali, si lancia nelle indagini per fare chiarezza sulle misteriose circostanze che hanno portato alla morte del ragazzo.
Arrivato da Mosca, dove ha lasciato il figlio e la compagna nella speranza che lì, senza di lui, siano al sicuro, Stone dovrà attingere a ogni sua risorsa per mantenere la concentrazione. Ma meno di quarantotto ore dopo un nuovo omicidio lo lancia sotto il fuoco nemico, nel mirino di un assassino che agisce nell’ombra a difesa di un segreto capace di scardinare le istituzioni che Stone ha protetto per tutta la vita.
Trascinato dalle indagini, Stone si ritrova scaraventato in un confessionale a Glencoe, nel Galles, e poi nel Sud della Spagna, nel tentativo sempre più disperato di svelare la verità dietro una serie di tragici eventi iniziati all’ombra delle colline afgane.
Un romanzo ad alto tasso di adrenalina ed emozione, nel quale continui capovolgimenti di fronte lasciano il lettore con il fiato sospeso dalla prima all’ultima pagina.

Standard Andy McNab, which to me is good. Don't read this unless you like McNab. Plot was a bit weak and the locations weren't as exotic as usual. Felt a bit like a filler book. Saying that, McNab has got a really nice conversational style of writing. It always reminds me not to get too formal in my Leggi tutto
I only read Mcnab on the side as I'm not big into Military based stories. This is the first I've read in a while, and I was a little disappointed. I actually really liked the main character, Nick Stone, and most of the characters throughout. I did find, however, the there were names being thrown in h Leggi tutto
Andy McNab’s latest Nick Stone thriller has an interesting premise and any link back to the SAS always has potential. Here, an SAS soldier is killed during training and it looks like there may be a cover up of something bigger. Stone has a connection and starts his own investigation, uncovering links Leggi tutto
I received a eARC of this book for my honest review. This isn't the kind of books I would usually read but my husband likes this book series and I decided to give this a try. I admit I have never read the other books in this series but the story wasn't really confusing at all . Even the military lingo Leggi tutto
Trying out this genre. It's fast-paced in the sense that most chapters are a page long, the action is very abrupt and kinda hard to follow because of the lack of context. A thing I found interesting is how much of the book is Nick flying to a series of European holiday destinations to have a brief me Leggi tutto
I'm a big fan of the pulps from the 1930's and beyond - Doc Savage, The Avenger, The Shadow, etc. They tended to be very simple but there are more unique characters, snappy dialogue, and intriguing plots in one chapter of any of those old pulps than in this novel. I took a chance at a four for a dol Leggi tutto
For Valour was more of a thriller and less action than most Andy McNab books but I enjoyed it all the same, mostly. What really annoyed me was the stupidity of Nick Stone whom having got away with the prize half way through the book did the most stupid thing of all to get it back into the baddies ha Leggi tutto
This started off well but ultimately got way too confusing with lots of random characters, enjoyed up to the conclusion of the 1st sniper incident and after that just I just got lost with the amount of people popping up throughout the book. I ended up rushing through the final 150 pages just to fini Leggi tutto
Another Nick Stone Winner! After reading twenty plus Nick Stone books in this series you know what your getting before you read the first paragraph. This latest installment is no different, loaded with action and great storytelling, you can never go wrong with Andy McNab in any situation. A very soli Leggi tutto
Va!our? Nick's walk down memory lane is a much different feel than other books in this series. It gives a new texture to a solid hero and series, deepens the reasons for and why he is as he is. I liked it, but not like the first half dozen in the series. They were and are the benchmark for the genre. Leggi tutto
