The plot is complex but effortlessly readable, and the book is basically one big chase with wraparounds at beginning and end. It’s almost impossible to make a chase non-exciting and McNab is more than willing to share with the reader all of his survival and combat s ...more
And this isn't even why I love this book.

There's also a plot involving terrorists which takes Stone to the Whitehouse. Good follow up to R ...more

He's orders are to ...more

It could very easily have gotten too stereotypical, macho male lead, damsel in distress/kick-ass female that the macho male lead falls in love with. It was a little bit of each, with emphasis on "little". It wasn't too bad.
There was however A LOT of details, and I assume McNab added those to show that "yes, I have done this, several times" and that his former job was NOT easy, if I ever thought any such ...more

Since I had just re-read Remote Control (the first book in the series), the second novel in this series was a natural choice.
Throughout the book there was quite a lot of mistakes with spelling on the kindle edition.
