A high-level conflict at the dark heart of the Russian Empire and an assassin's bullet on an isolated Alpine pass propel ex-deniable operator Nick Stone from an apparently run-of-the-mill close-protection task into his most brutal and challenging mission yet. Without warning, Stone finds himself one of Europe's Most Wanted. He must evade the elite forces of three nations in pursuit of faceless men who trade in human misery - and a lone-wolf terrorist capable of delivering the Western World's worst nightmare. Vengeance of the most explosive kind is top of Stone's agenda. The fuse has been ignited - but who really holds the detonator?
Ex-SAS, ex-Black Ops, Nick Stone returns and this time he wants vengeance. At any cost.
As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. 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.
