Nick Stone finds himself on yet another mission for the man he hates, but this one promises to be straightforward and simple so he can return to his life in the states. Stone comes back from the mission feeling that he has completed the task just to find not only is his personal life circling the drain but the last job was just scratching the surface. with a biological attack planned on America, Germany and England stone must stop at nothing to prevent it..... but at what cost?
I love reading Andy McNab's books, Like all of his other books in this series this one was action pack and brilliant and well written. I have to say though it took me months to read it, i just couldn't get in to it. after reading the first 5 you find the same things seem to happen in all of them, he does a job when he doesn't want to it starts to go well, then falls apart and hes in a situation he will never get out off, oh wait yes he does and hes fine and finishes the mission against all odds and will never work for the company again, next book oh wait hes forces in to a job. so it took me a whole to get in to it, the story i think was a bit more slow moving in this book, i have to say though the whole book got saved by the last few chapters! it went from a book i was considering not finishing to a book i couldn't put down!
I loved Nick just as much in this book but i have to warn you get issues out, i broke my heart it was so sad! i just wanted to hug him so much in this book, you see his lowest point but i have a feeling also a turning point in his life and am excited to see where that new direction will go!
Another good book by Andy McNab 3*
