Lilian Edinet, vent’anni appena, figlia di un imprenditore moldavo e studentessa in Inghilterra, è scomparsa da una settimana. Un caso come un altro, una delle migliaia di persone che ogni giorno vengono inghiottite dal nulla, a volte per sempre... Ma questo caso sembra interessare in maniera particolare i servizi segreti britannici. Perché? Che cosa nasconde, questa scomparsa, per essere così speciale? E che cosa nasconde Nick Stone, ex SAS pluridecorato, l’unico in grado di ritrovarla eppure così restio, per la prima volta, a scendere in campo? Quali nubi offuscano la sua vita privata, ora che la fortuna sembra finalmente aver guardato dalla sua parte? Affiancato da Anna, la splendida giornalista russa entrata nella sua vita come un sogno inaspettato, e forse troppo bello per essere vero, Nick Stone accetta comunque la missione, affidatagli da un pezzo grosso dell’MI5. Inizia così una discesa nell’inferno più nero, popolato da trafficanti di vite umane, seguendo una pista che lo porterà dall’Olanda in Moldavia, fino in Danimarca. Ma solo a Londra Nick vivrà sulla propria pelle lo spietato cinismo di uomini che ricoprono posizioni di altissimo livello al servizio dello Stato, gli stessi ai quali ha sempre ubbidito ciecamente...

Overall, I found the book a bit of slog and only got through it thanks to the well-drawn character of Nick Stone who I felt deserved better material from his creator this time out. The main story: Nick is looking for Lilian- a girl who has been sold into forced prostitution. The British goverment are Leggi tutto
A solid read of the kind you expect from McNab. Turn page, turn next, do not engage brain. And that is not a criticism. Sometimes you need a book that you can just let wash over you, and McNab fills that need. That said, you always learn something with his books in terms of geo-politics, or the curr Leggi tutto
I've never read any of the Nick Stone books before, but I don't feel that I've missed anything too crucial by starting with number 13. This book delivered exactly what I was looking for: high octane action and a fairly uncomplicated storyline. Although I should warn potential readers that the book do Leggi tutto
Andy McNab does another fine job of taking the reader into the shadowy world of former SAS operative Nick Stone. McNab handles complex world issus both competently and with a narrative that sounds authentically 'Army', as you'd expect. But there's enough character building in here to make it far mor Leggi tutto
Great Read! I had read the prior 12 Nick Stone novels and took a couple years off and let Andy MaCnab write a few more. I am so glad I picked this series back up. This book was awesome from start to finish, I now have 3 more to read. You simply can't go wrong with And MaCnab. A solid 4.5 Stars and a Leggi tutto
Switch your brain off, sit back, open a beer/ pour a cuppa what ever floats your boat, kick back and enjoy the ride. that sums up this and almost all of Andys books, You get your usual slice of action pace thrill and adventure, im not really sure what else anyone would be looking for when they purcha Leggi tutto
I lost interest in this book after 100 pages, but unfortunately there were another 400+ pages to go. It was extremely long, unnecessarily so, although about a third of the book was probably made up of swear words. The writing was very shabby indeed. I would not pick up one of Andy McNab's books agai Leggi tutto
Another incredible story in the Nick Stone series. Nuff said. Five stars all the way. All my reviews of McNab's earlier books apply equally to this one.
Here goes ( short and sweet) but deserves more! The last 25% of this book is phenomenal! I couldn't put it down and just raced through it
Excellant book. Looks at human trafficking issue. A well written storyline with the usual Macnab style
