The young son of a Russian oligarch is kidnapped. His father will pay anything, do anything, stop at nothing to get him back. Up to now, everything he has tried has failed. He needs the one man with the know-how, the means and the guts to complete the mission: ex-SAS trouble-shooter Nick Stone...

But for Nick, the mission will take him to the poorest and most violent country on the planet, Somalia - a lawless land, ripped apart by civil war and famine, fought over by drug-fuelled, gun-crazy clan fighters. They want to make the world to sit up and take notice - any way they can...


“Sometimes only the rollercoaster ride of an action-packed thriller hits the spot. No one delivers them as professionally or as plentifully as SAS soldier turned author McNab” - The Guardian (UK)

“Nick Stone is one of the great all-action characters of recent times” - Daily Mirror (UK)

“Stone is a deceptively complex action hero who does as good a job as many a newspaper columnist in guiding us through the new global politics” - Mail on Sunday (UK)

About Andy McNab

From the day he was found abandoned in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy’s Hospital, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.

As a teenage delinquent, he 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 Special Air Service Regiment he was involved for ten years in covert and overt special operations worldwide, often working alongside America’s Delta Force, SEALS, DEA and CIA.

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.

Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three non-fiction bestsellers, he is the author of fifteen bestselling Nick Stone thrillers.

Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.

If you’ve never read a book like his 14th Nick Stone thriller (there’s no way the hero could have been called Nick Flowers), then the testosterone heat coming off the pages will stun you.
