Tasked with rescuing the daughter of one of America’s richest families from the grips of a sinister cult, Nick Stone expects his latest mission to be quick and straightforward. Inevitably, it soon transpires that there is more going on than initially meets the eye, and he becomes reluctantly drawn into in a potential cyber attack on the West, all the while battling his own failing health which is gradually ticking down. From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.

This is still an enjoyable series and there have been lots of highlight, this book touches on a few mainly the characters, it just wasn’t one of the better ones for me.As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years – on five continents.

The Chalke History Festival announces a new name, new look, and tons for history buffs to get their teeth into! We do get more a peek into his thought processes, and a decent fistful of the major mistakes, brutal action, and excessive personal damage that are the namesake protagonist's trademark. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero , the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers.

This is the final novel in the long running Nick Stone series which began way back in 1998 and drew heavily on the author’s own knowledge and experience of Special Forces soldiering. McNab is the author of seven fast action thrillers, highly acclaimed for their authenticity and all Sunday Times bestsellers. Being someone who has read and listened to all the previous books in this series, I am more than disappointed with this effort. When I first started reading the Andy McNab books, I found them quite hard, I'm not sure why, but they didn't flow that well.

Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. It just felt a bit plodding to me, the action sequences weren’t as gripping as normally and it just felt a bit predictable. Having read all the previous books, some more than once, I am not sure I will read the next if it happens. Part of the problem is that she may not want to be rescued and the group do not seem cult like at all. With both author and hero getting on in the years, it's time to bow out, and that's just what they do.

The story just never seemed to get going , the plot was weak and predictable with long passages of dialogue and very little action. It’s almost like he’s had a reset over the last two or three books and events from before that are irrelevant.

having read mcnab's non-fiction books as well as the entire nick stone series more than twice, this latest novel is a new low in a considerable line of lacking suspense, credibility or anything else that could make a book worthwhile to read. honestly, it is a book full of blablabla, some old pals which resemble his last sort of family, NO mentioning of any of his former life or adventures, NO considerable action, no nothing, if it is not the last nick stone novel (as promised within the book), it definitely will be the lasts for me. A sinister cult Tasked with rescuing the daughter of one of America's richest families from the grips of a sinister cult, Nick Stone expects his latest mission to be quick and straightforward. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. Let’s face it, f you’re going to read this sort of book, all the better that it has the authenticity of being written by someone who’s actually been there and done it. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop. Andy McNab clearly wants to move on from Stone and focus on his new Shadow State series (I’ve read the first one, it’s not great) and his interest in the cyber world. Immediate Action, McNab's autobiography, spent 18 weeks at the top of the bestseller lists following the lifting on an ex-parte injunction granted to the Ministry of Defence in September 1995.I am a fast reader and the fact that (I think) this is my first ever 1 star review reflects how I feel I wasted 5 days struggling through this (its NO page turner. Although his back up characters, whilst excellent, in the book may not be much help when physical help is needed. The CD spoken word version of Bravo Two Zero, narrated by McNab, sold over 60,000 copies and earned a silver disc.
