1993: Sotto copertura, Nick Stone e la sua squadra di sorveglianza speciale vivono da alcune settimane nel Costa Rica, in un’azione che li porta nella giungla e tra le strade della città. La loro missione è localizzare il boss del più letale cartello della droga ed eliminarlo senza indugio.
Finalmente il momento di colpire è arrivato. Per controllare che l’operazione sia andata a buon fine, però, Nick dovrà rivelare il suo volto. È un rischio che è disposto a correre, ma le conseguenze saranno letali.
2011: Nick vive a Mosca, lontano da tutto, accanto ad Anna e al bimbo nato prematuro. Ma quando le condizioni di suo figlio si aggravano e il dottore che dovrebbe salvargli la vita viene minacciato, Nick si ritrova nuovamente sul campo di battaglia. Le forze scatenate contro di lui hanno armi, elicotteri, eserciti privati e tengono in pugno una popolazione terrorizzata. Nick Stone è determinato a proteggere la donna e il bambino che ora significano per lui più della sua stessa vita.

A friend gave me this book and asked me several times if I liked it. So I always answered that I haven't read it yet because I have so many books on my list, but school is coming and no more running away. So I tried to read it. I really did. Yet, I struggled to finish it. I skipped pages and pages. I Leggi tutto
I am reviewing the SAS thriller Silencer by Andy McNab which is an excellent novel which I bought from kindle. This is the 15th installment in the Nick Stone series about an ex SAS soldier who is quite poor but makes a living doing covert missions. This book starts with him doing a covert mission in Leggi tutto
Another Nick Stone adventure. They are all great including this one. Globe trotting and a definite thriller. Action and adventure. Most of the book is edge of the seat stuff. Roll on the next one.
My mum's friend gave this to me to borrow to read before he does. When he gave it to me I felt too bad to say no as it's not really my cup of tea but I decide to read it anyway...and I actually enjoyed it. It was fast-paced and gripping but easy to read. I probably won't pick up any other McNab book Leggi tutto
This book has been sat in my to read pile for quite some time, I can see why after reading it. To be fair, it's not all that bad, just feels a little bit clunky and whilst the drama and suspense builds up, how these situations are resolved seems too easy. The book travels the world from Russia to Ho Leggi tutto
It's beginning to get old for me because it's getting old for McNab. He needs some way to shake this series up. I recommend Bruen
I quite liked the book and enjoyed the action, learning about the south american gangs and Cartel's and the tradecraft Nick Stone uses but what ruined it for me was the absurd coincidences of all the main protaganists knowing each other which caused all the drama in the 1st place. With 8 billion peo Leggi tutto

Please give this author and series a shot, I promise you.Will not be disappointed! A very solid 4.5 Stars Leggi tutto
Great read- Stone's character is just too cool for school! So chilled and kicked back with a great attitude to life. McNab writes with style and humour, with lines that are just laugh out loud funny. I much prefer McNab's style to the often compared Chris Ryan, but both are skilled at telling excell Leggi tutto
A Nick Stone novel with all the right ingredients well told. It would be a good introduction to the series as there is not much background knowledge required. Plus plenty of bad guys get given the good news.
