Bodyguarding a TV crew on the streets of war-torn Basra, ex-deniable operator Nick Stone seems certain to die when insurgent gunmen attack. Only the reporter's swift action saves his life. When the reporter vanishes within hours, presumed kidnapped, Stone is asked by the Intelligence Service to find him.
The trail leads from Iraq to London, Dublin, and ultimately Kabul: the dark and brutal city where governments, terrorism, and big business inexorably collide. Caught in the crossfire, Stone's nightmare is only just beginning: for the hunter has suddenly become the hunted, in a heart-stopping race against time.
Unrelentingly violent, harrowing, and chillingly graphic as it hurtles us towards a truly shocking climax, Nick Stone's 10th adventure is high-voltage, pulse-pounding, no-holds-barred McNab: prose so testosterone-drenched, action so blisteringly paced, it could only have been penned by the master thriller writer at his electrifying, un-put-downable best.

isnt this actually jason flemyng? not steven pacey..
First Andy McNabe book I have listened to can't wait for the next one this story is fantastic and should be made into a film
The best just got better
I've read every Nick Stone Book Andy McNab has had published, I look forward to Christmas every year as I know another book will be out. Trouble is they don't last long enough, by early boxing day I've finished. Gutted to know I have to wait another year for my next fix of Nick Stone's adventures.
Knowing Andy has been there done that and left behind the T-shirt, makes it all the more real and won't allow me to put the book down. Love his work, would love to meet the man, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. Roll on Christmas 2008. Excellent, excellent read, or in this case listen...
